John M Armleder Exhibitions Open in New York and Los Angeles

By Delphine de Causans

January 19, 2017

Yesterday, a solo exhibition of Swiss artist John M Armleder opened at Almine Rech Gallery in New York, on view through February 23. The artist is also on view in his first solo show in Los Angeles in over 15-years at David Kordansky Gallery (open until February 25). Curated by Nicolas Trembley, the Almine Rech exhibition presents a large selection of Armleder’s work, like drawings from the sixties, furniture from the eighties and new works made in Brooklyn especially for the show.

Born in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1948, Armleder is a multi-disciplinary artist—he’s a performance artist, painter, drawer, sculpture, critic, and curator. He is one of the most recognized artists from the country who has notably shown at the MAMCO of Geneva in the winter of 2006-2007.

He is also known for his involvement with Fluxus (he was inspired by John Cage, among others) as well as for being the co-founder of Groupe Ecart, created in association with Patrick Lucchini and Claude Rychner in 1969. He is deeply interested in context, the Duchampian ready-mades, the music of Cage, geometric shapes, and Zen Buddhism.

Whether in New York or Los Angeles, these are must-see exhibitions of not only a great artist but an amazing man.
