Rosemarie Castoro

Theaster Gates, Rosemarie Castoro, Wade Guyton, and More Must See Paris Shows

Pearl Fontaine

28 February 2019

If you’re in Paris for Fashion Week, be sure to make time to visit these top museum and gallery exhibitions throughout the city.

Theaster Gates: Amalgam
Palais de Tokyo
Now—May 12
Palais de Tokyo is showing Theaster Gates’ “Amalgam” as part of its “Sensible” series, which highlights works focusing on uncertain motions and movements in history, pertaining to stories of migration and other transpositions of everyday life. In Gates’ exhibition, the artist explores the social histories of Maine’s Malaga Island, where a group of interracial members of its poorest population was forced to relocate by the governor in 1912. Starting with the story of Malaga, Gates addresses issues like land ownership and race relations (focusing on black subjugation in particular) through a range of sculpture, cinematographic, and musical perspectives.

Theaster Gates: Selected Works
Gagosian
Now—March 23
Coinciding with “Amalgam,” Theaster Gates’s first solo museum show in France, Gagosian is  filling two floors of the gallery’s space with the artist’s work. The exhibition offers a sweeping panoramic view of the artists widespread practice, which spans the areas of sculpture, painting, ceramics, performance, music, and video. On view is Gates’ ongoing “Civil Tapestries” series, a ceramic work titled High Horizon (which relates to Gates’s own family history), and Black Madonna, a statue modeled after a keychain tchotchke of a medieval throne of wisdom.

Rosemarie Castoro: Wherein Lies the So Space
Thaddaeus Ropac Paris Marais
Now—March 30
Coinciding with what would have been Rosemarie Castoro’s 80th birthday, “Wherein Lies the So Space” is a survey of the late artist’s work from the mid-1960s through the mid-1980s. Named for the Concrete Poem that Castoro considered to be the testimony to her practice, the exhibition follows the artist’s focus on the bond between body and mind, which she explored through painting, photography, sculpture, conceptual drawing, performance, and concrete poetry. While Castoro was considered one of the few females associated with the Minimalist movement, the artist lightly rejected the term, often referring to herself as a “maximust” due to the way she blended media in her works.

Wade Guyton: Natural Wine
Galerie Chantal Crousel
Now—April 6
Artist Wade Guyton’s practice employs techniques that affect the conditions and production of digital images, which he creates through the unconventional manipulation of his printer by testing his control systems and materials. In his newest series, “Natural Wine,” the artist plays with interactions between painting and photography, integrating photos taken with a mobile phone, paintings drying on the floor, enlarged bitmap files, screenshots, and images made from within and from his studio.

 

Daniel Dezeuze: From a Certain Angle
Galerie Templon
Now—March 9
Galerie Templon is showing the ways Daniel Dezeuze’s radical practices have been breaking barriers and opening new spaces in the art world since the 1960s in “From a Certain Angle.” Known for his geometric works that take traditional painting off the canvas, the exhibition highlights the artist’s unconventional practices through works that play with empty spaces and three-dimensionality—like a piece made from a the bones of a canvas frame titled Saveur de la géométrie (Flavor geometry). In the first section, a series of colorful frames and open-worked surfaces indirectly pay tribute to the artists and paintings that inspire Dezeuze. In the second, the artist’s drawings are the center of attention, displayed to mirror the publication Daniel Dezeuze, Drawings, 1960—2018, created by the gallery in collaboration with Skira.
