Almine Rech New York is pleased to present Nomadic Murals an exhibition of tapestries by Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier organized in collaboration with Fondation Le Corbusier. This is the first time the gallery has shown works by Le Corbusier. The exhibition will be on view from September 14 to October 22, 2022.
With his tapestries, Le Corbusier found a form of expression that allowed him to combine the themes of his paintings with the challenge of the wall surfaces of his buildings. Connecting his initial experiments from the 1930s with his major compositions after 1945, this exhibition gathers his drawings, cartoons, and a group of woven artworks. In this way, it covers the whole field of his imagination, from still lifes to the female figures that continued to inspire him.
