Almine Rech Shanghai is pleased to present Sequitur, John M Armleder’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. In 2019, Armleder took part of the exhibition Abstraction(s) at the Song Art Museum in Beijing. Sequitur will take place from July 9 to August 14, 2021 simultaneously and in parallel to his Rockbund Art Museum solo exhibition.
John M Armeleder is the co-founder of the Ecart Group (1969) and closely affiliated with the Fluxus movement. Since the 1960s he has created a multi-disciplinary body of work that encompasses performance, drawings, sculptures and paintings.
Featuring a rich selection of works, the exhibition will include a Furniture Sculpture from the series he began in 1979 and which brought him international recognition. His Furniture Sculptures, bringing together an iconic association of design and paintings, question the trivialization of the artwork as an ornamental piece. His Puddle paintings will be presented along with an entirely new pictorial abstraction in continuity of his Pour paintings.Overall the exhibition will demonstrate Armleder’s continuous exploration of a fundamentally strong and fluid oeuvre.
