Press release

For her second solo exhibition with Almine Rech, Madelynn Green has created a body of spirited paintings and drawings that unveil the ironies of self-fashioning, or “dolling up”. The paintings consider the notion of spectacle from the lenses of subject versus spectator, individual versus collective, and styled versus stylist. Dolls is a vivid departure from Madelynn Green’s 2021 show Birth of a Star at Almine Rech Paris and her 2020 show Heartland at Taymour Grahne Projects, which respectively explored stardom and her hometown. While these shows centred on aesthetics of celebrity, the celestial, and the American Midwest, Dolls considers aesthetics more literally by examining beauty through the lenses of performance and self-fashioning.
