Press release

Almine Rech is pleased to announce Allen Jones’ second solo exhibition with the gallery, featuring recent works. The exhibition will largely concentrate on new works including paintings hitherto not shown before, including empty yet beautifully lit theatre interiors - a subject remarkably resonant in our current peculiar times.

Allen Jones is part of an extraordinary generation of artists from North America and across Western Europe born in the 1930s who, children during the horrors of World War II, were art students in the shift from the austerity of the recovering fifties into a decade of the prosperous swinging sixties with its celebration of a newfound sense of consumerism and sexual liberation. There had not been a comparable decade in Europe since the twenties. In the world of painting, artists who typified this generation included, in the States, James Rosenquist and Tom Wesselmann, Martial Raysse in France, Michelangelo Pistoletto in Italy, and Konrad Klapheck in Western Germany. In Britain amongst the most prominent figures of his particular generation was Allen Jones. And like many others went on to have distinguished and inventive careers over several decades until the present.
