    “We are delighted to have the opportunity to recognize a new generation of artists who are responding to the world around them in unique and unexpected ways,” said Melissa Chiu, the Hirshhorn’s director. “These artists share an approach to art making that is not only pushing the boundaries of tradition, but also is transforming our own understanding of the world. It is this original artistic expression that is fundamental to the Hirshhorn, and we could not be more proud to celebrate this next generation for all of their accomplishments.”

    The Hirshhorn welcomed approximately 300 guests on November 3rd to One World Trade Center, which at 1,776 feet is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. The Manhattan skyline at sunset was the stunning backdrop for an elegant cocktail reception, followed by a seated dinner and a decadent dessert presentation.

  • Bertrand Lavier at On Site


    October 20 - 23, 2016
    Petit Palais, Paris

    Almine Rech Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the new On Site sector of FIAC, at the Petit Palais. The gallery will present ‘Gaveau’ (2008) by Bertrand Lavier, a painted piano that belongs to his painted objects series.
    For this latest body of work, which emerged alongside the artist's general return to figurative painting, the Lavier coated objects in thick acrylic paint matching their original color. Playing on a transferal of meaning, Lavier evokes here the potential resonance between painting and objects.
