  • Art Basel Miami Beach Meridians


    November 29 - December 4, 2021
    Booth M2

    In the Meridians Sector, Almine Rech and David Castillo are pleased to present a joint presentation of Rover by Vaughn Spann (b. 1992, Orlando, Florida). Vaughn Spann's powerfully evocative paintings synthesize abstract textures and forms into compositions charged by familiar symbols and their changing connotations. Spann reconfigures our relationships to various motifs and archetypes - rainbows, the X, flags, and others - suggestive of the fraught and violent social realities that underlie life.

  • Otis Kwame Quaicoe, Vaughn Spann and Genesis Tramaine at Rubell Museum, Miami


    Almine Rech is pleased to announce the Rubell Museum's program for Miami Art Week 2021, featuring a slate of exhibitions highlighting three artists-in-residence, newly commissioned work, and new acquisitions, including Otis Kwame Quaicoe, Vaughn Spann and Genesis Tramaine.

    In 2021, the Museum hosted, among others, Otis Kwame Quaicoe as an Artist-in-Residence, where he realized his largest works to date. Quaicoe creates empowering, lush portraits of his family and friends, where color and texture express the subject’s character. Quaicoe began his residency by creating double portraits that explore the auspicious occurrence of twins, drawing on the Ghanian Ga culture, which views the birth of twins as evidence of the innate link between the corporal and spiritual realm. His residency culminated in a large-scale triptych that considers the forgotten history of Black cowboys.

    The Rubell Museum recently acquired the work Dark days bring new hope (never forget) by Vaughn Spann, on display for Miami Art Week 2021.
    Vaughn Spann devotes his practice to abstraction and figuration as an investigation into space, time and memory. He locates subjects from deeply personal spaces as he reconciles with his body within and out of the studio.

    Genesis Tramaine was Rubell Museum’s 2020 Artist-in-Residence. 
    Her exhibition Sanctuary, on view at the Rubell until January 30, 2022, encompasses a series of layered portraits created during her six-week residency at the Museum. Guided by her spiritual upbringing and study of the Bible her studio practice incorporates prayer, song and dance.

    Miami Art Week Hours and Admission 

    During Miami Art Week, admission to the Museum will be waived for all visitors thanks to the generous support of Bank of America. To ensure the safety of its visitors and staff, the Museum has instituted health and safety protocols.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce its participation in the 2021 HUMAN RIGHT WATCH auction with a work by Tarik Kiswanson

    "For several years now vision, birth, coming of age, rootlessness and renewal have been central themes in my work. I have explored them through sculpture, performance, video and writing. I have recently begun to surround myself with images from the natural world. Seeds, birds, moths and chrysalis, all symbols of migration and transformation, have become central motifs in my most recent works."

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary American artist Andrea Marie Breiling in Europe, United Kingdom and Asia.


    Sweet Dreams of Rhythm and Dancing, Andrea Marie Breiling's first exhibition in London, will be on view from November 23 to December 18, 2021.

    Andrea Marie Breiling makes us witness to her physicality while simultaneously inviting us to experience our own. Building multiple, cross-hatched layers of spray paint, she brings phantasmagorical gestures and shapes to life across the surfaces of her work. Her brush-free approach allows her to render wide forms filled with a frenetic energy that is as emotional as it is physical.

    For inquiries, please contact: inquiries@alminerech.com

  • West Bund Art & Design 2021


    November 11 - 14, 2021
    Booth A109
    Booth B323 (Alexandre Lenoir 'Without Fanfare - On the Border of Dreams')


    Please join Almine Rech at West Bund Art & Design 2021, presenting a solo project of Vaughn Spann.

    Born in 1992 in Florida, USA, currently living and working in Newark, New Jersey, Vaughn Spann devotes his practice to abstraction and figuration as an investigation into space, time and memory.

    On the occasion of West Bund Art & Design 2021, Almine Rech is thrilled to present a selection of works from different series to showcase the diversity of Vaughn Spann's practice to the Chinese audience. Concurrently, Almine Rech Shanghai will present his first solo exhibition in China, Pups!, from October 22 to November 27, 2021, which focuses on his Dalmatian series.

    On the occasion of West Bund Art & Design 2021, Almine Rech is pleased to participate in the special project of Consulate General of France in Shanghai - French Artists Exhibition, presenting Horizon of Alexandre Lenoir.

    Without Fanfare - On the Border of Dreams (Sans tambours ni trompettes – A la frontière du rêve), curated by Myriam Kryger, with the collaboration of Margo Renisio for the exhibition's scenographic design, brings together sixty works from fifteen contemporary artists, from well-established artists in the contemporary French scene with international fame to emerging young artists who have won critical attention.

    Alexandre Lenoir, born in 1992 in Chartres (France), is a French-Caribbean artist. After graduating with honors from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris (2016), Alexandre Lenoir moved to Casablanca to further develop his practice in 2017. Alexandre Lenoir was awarded Pierre Cardin de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts de Paris Prize in 2020 and Prix Jean-François Prat in 2021. He now lives and works in Paris. Representing landscapes, interiors and buildings, the works of Alexandre Lenoir often feature characters as ephemeral as memories. An ambiguous hedonism inhabits these visions, drawing on the multiple identities of the artist himself. His paintings consist of multiple layers of color washes combined with an elaborate stencil technique.
