    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.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary Mexican-American artist Daniel Gibson in Europe, United Kingdom, New York and Asia.


    Almine Rech hosted the artist's inaugural solo exhibition at Almine Rech New York in June 2021. His second solo exhibition will take place at Almine Rech Paris, Front Space in July 2022.

    Daniel Gibson (b. 1977, Yuma, AZ) grew up in El Centro, CA, and other surrounding towns that border Mexicali, Baja California. Both of Gibson's parents immigrated from Mexico, settling in the American southwest. This led to Gibson's early inspiration from his exposure to the desert and communities, as well as the sheetrock factory in Plaster City, CA, where his father worked. Gibson’s output is bred by his indispensable draw towards creation, an expressive therapeutic flow of visions and beliefs, real life situations and dreams, comprising a combination of elements incomparably extricated and productively gifted.

    Daniel Gibson currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
    He is represented by Shulamit Nazarian in Los Angeles.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce its participation in the 2021 TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art auction with a work by Haley Josephs.


    Haley Josephs
    MY DOLPHIN FANTASY, 2021
    Oil on linen - 10 x 8 inches

    Fairy tales are grasping at a world that can never be. Maybe a painting is a fairy tale? It’s a reflection of our world, but with a spin on it that makes it forever unattainable. Like a bug preserved in crystal, you can’t get to it without breaking it all apart. What is reality? What is the dream?­­ 
    - Haley Josephs

    Brooklyn-based painter Haley Josephs focuses on fantasy and femininity in her archetypal portraits, painted in the artist’s brushy, luminous style. The fairy tale scenes Jospehs create vary from light, elemental works, like this painting My Dolphin Fantasy, to darker scenes of post-apocalyptic anger and alienation. Here, the figure has a carefree aura as she emerges from an idealized ocean with whimsical dolphins leaping behind her. A graduate from Yale University’s MFA program, Josephs has exhibited in the US, Mexico, and China, and her work is in the collection of the X Museum, Beijing, among others.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary American artist Gerasimos Floratos in France, Belgium and China.


    Almine Rech hosted the artist's inaugural solo exhibition at Almine Rech Paris in November 2020. His second solo exhibition will take place at Almine Rech Brussels, Belgium in September 2022, as well as a solo presentation at Château de Boisgeloup, Gisors, France, in October 2022.

    Gerasimos Floratos (b. 1986) lives and works in New York City. Floratos grew up enmeshed in the overwhelming sensorial experience that is Times Square, the pounding commercial and touristic heart of the city, a place the artist refers to as “the center of the center”. To this day, his studio is stationed there, where he continues to work and live.

    Surrounded by the restlessness of midtown Manhattan, Floratos uses the hyper-charged atmosphere of his neighborhood as a springboard for a deeper exploration of the urban matrix and the human subconscious. Impastoed paintings that are at once luminous and torpidly congested feature a rotating cast of anthropomorphic creatures: sauntering pedestrians, skyscraper bouquets, honking commuters, trudging oversize shoes, and hands with gigantic mushrooming fingers. 

    Laden with the sonic qualities of city life, Floratos’ psycho-figurative bodies simultaneously map the internal workings of the artist's mind, and the visceral experience of his physical environment in what he describes as a form of “psychogeography”, a term borrowed from Guy Debord, a founding member of the Situationist International movement of the 1960s. By examining the ways the urban environment shapes our lived experience, Floratos captures the chaotic and anxious pace of the city, creating dense spaces crowded by larger than life subjects that radiate the oblivious audacity of big city personas.
