Gallery Weekend Beijing

May 24 – June 9, 2024

Booth A07-301

On the occasion of Gallery Weekend Beijing 2024, Almine Rech is pleased to present Chameleon, an exhibition featuring artists Jean-Baptiste Bernadet and Alejandro Cardenas.

It is always very interesting to compare two artists whose artworks, at first glance, seem to have nothing in common. While thematic exhibitions seem inevitably to confine the artworks in the prison of their theme, “dual” exhibitions, without putting too many constraints on the eyes and the mind, offer the possibility of envisioning relations or tensions between the works: inevitably we are interested in what brings them together and what distinguishes them, leaving aside expectations, presuppositions, subjects, or styles. Without excessive effort, we then begin to reach another reality of painting, something that is unique to this art: we experience painting as a language.

— Eric Troncy, French art critic, curator, and Director of the Consortium Museum in Dijon, France
