  • One by One: Leelee Kimmel


    February 23 - March 6, 2021


    EXPLORE ONLINE! 

    Almine Rech is pleased to share Leelee Kimmel: Knight
    , 2021, the tenth installment of One by One, Almine Rech’s series of exclusive online viewing rooms dedicated to extraordinary individual artworks.

    Leelee Kimmel makes abstract paintings, but most abstraction, even very severe and reductionist abstraction, admits figments of representation. Think of the ways the rectangle connotes a door or a window. In her essay “Grids”, Rosalind Krauss takes the window in one of Odilon Redon’s symbolist works as a stepping off: the window grid then underlying works so seemingly removed from Redon’s, like Mondrian’s mature Neo-plasticist paintings. “Pure” paintings, reductions, abstractions. And yet did Mondrian ever disavow their background in Symbolism? The haunted trees of his earlier theosophy-soaked works become ever more disembodied, “de-treed” as it were, and yet remain lurking spectral presences.

  • Almine Rech pays tribute to De Wain Valentine


    It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of De Wain Valentine (1936 - 2022). We are proud and honored to have worked closely with this incredible artist. 

    De Wain Valentine was born in Colorado and arrived in L.A. in 1965 to teach a course in plastics technology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He is regarded today among the earliest pioneers in the use of industrial plastics and resins to execute monumental sculptures that reflect the light and engage the surrounding space through its mesmerizingly translucent surfaces that arrest one's gaze. […] This technical knowledge, combined with his subsequent experience working with fiberglass-reinforced plastic in boat building shops and painting automobiles, air planes - and even, according to some, UFOs - led to his fascination and artistic involvement with sculptures made out of colored plastic and polyester resin, all materials evoking a futurist era.

    Almine Rech organized several exhibitions with the artist since 2014 including a retrospective titled 'Works from 1967 to present' in New York in 2019 and 'De Wain Valentine' at Almine Rech Paris in 2014.

    Access Art Basel's OVR:2021

    On the occasion of Art Basel's OVR:2021, Almine Rech is pleased to present a solo presentation of South African painter Dr. Esther Mahlangu, featuring a selection of eight new works.

    Dr. Esther Mahlangu is globally acclaimed for her bright and bold abstract paintings with vivid, geometric patterns that are rooted in Ndebele artistic tradition, a South African community. 
    She was a disruptor from an early age, becoming the first person to reimagine Ndebele visual artistic tradition, historically used for decorating houses, on painting media like canvas.
    Dr. Mahlangu has spent more than seven decades practicing her technique and has traveled extensively to collaborate with the world's most respected museums, galleries, curators, art fairs, celebrities, and global brands.
    In 1991 she became the first woman and first African to participate in the BMW Art Car Collection alongside other prominent figures such as Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, and Frank Stella.

    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.
