Almine Rech will be launching a new space in New York in October 2016. The 3,000 m2 space, to be inaugurated on 27 October, will open with an exhibition-event titled “Calder and Picasso”.
Almine Rech already has spaces in Paris, New York, Brussels and London, and represents major artists such as James Turell, John McCracken and Joseph Kosuth.
Paul de Froment will be heading up the gallery’s new space, at 39 East 78th Street on the Upper East Side. He has commented: “It’s a honour to inaugurate Almine Rech Gallery’s newest location in New York City with an exhibition by two of the most iconic artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition is not only an exploration of the creative dialogue between these two formidable artists, but an insightful and intimate story shared from the families’ perspectives.”
