Chloe Wise’s practice spans diverse media, including painting, sculpture, video and installation. Foregrounding an interest in the history of portraiture, Wise examines the multiple channels that lead to the construction of a Self, paying particular attention to the interweaving of consumption and image making. With a wry sense of humour, she nods to canonical tableaux, like Manet’s Déjeuner Sur L’Herbe, exploring the shared projected desires built around food and the female body. Meticulously hand painted casts of food serve as the base for the artist’s sculptural practice where strange assemblies, now frozen in sculpted plastic, toy with the presence and absence of unchangeability and perishability, fiction and reality. Advertising, fashion, taboo, multi-national brands—Wise looks to the consumptive habits built around these structures with parody and derision, underlying how the body is framed and becomes excessive in its manipulation of these sites.

  • The Coalition for the Homeless - Online Viewing Room


    May 26 - June 7, 2020

     

    Almine Rech is pleased to announce a special initiative in collaboration with artists to support the individuals and families who have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. A curated online exhibition will open May 26, featuring new works by New Jersey- and New York-based artists:

    Justin Adian, Joe Andoe, Jean-Baptiste Bernadet, Todd Bienvenu, Joe Bradley, Peter Halley, Marcus Jahmal, Kurt Kauper, Leelee Kimmel, Jeff Koons, Erik Lindman, John McAllister, Sam McKinniss, Arlene Shechet, Taryn Simon, Vaughn Spann, Genesis Tramaine, Chloe Wise.

    There are currently more people homeless in New York than at any time since the Great Depression. Tonight alone, 63,000 people - including nearly 22,000 children - will sleep in NYC shelters. As the nation's oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless individuals and families, the Coalition for the Homeless provides lifesaving support to thousands of homeless and at-risk individuals every single day. Over the past 40 years, the Coalition has developed and implemented humane, cost-effective strategies to end mass homelessness once and for all, and in those four decades has given more than one million homeless New Yorkers a way off the streets.

    50% of each sale will be donated to the Coalition.

  • Selections - Online Viewing Room


    May 11 - 22, 2020

     

    Almine Rech is pleased to share with you a selection of new artworks by eleven artists the gallery represents. Entitled "Selections", the presentation takes place in our newly built 'viewing room.' It all began with the idea of expanding the experience of seeing art to a digital space where distance, simulation, and digitally constructed environments prevail, temporarily. These works in which body, figure and the identities’ essence are evident in the casting should have been presented for the first time this spring at Art Monaco, Art Brussels, and TEFAF New York, events which have either been postponed or canceled. Thus fostering proximity with an assembly of talents from the gallery, the ‘viewing room’ offers the possibility to encounter each work in a digital environment.
