PALM BEACH, FL—Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a new seasonal gallery in Palm Beach, Florida from December 2020 to May 2021. The temporary gallery will be located at 243A Worth Avenue—the historic commercial street in the heart of Palm Beach and home to many of the town’s most dynamic and celebrated businesses.
“The opportunity came to us rather serendipitously through Jane Holzer, who has a residence there and is a partner in Le Bilboquet, a new French restaurant opening nearby on Worth Avenue,” says Steve Henry, Senior Director of the gallery. “With the cancellation of art fairs and constraints on travel, the pandemic has propelled us to adapt—to find new ways to share our artists’ work. There has always been a passionate and discerning art community in Palm Beach and, of course, in neighboring Miami. With so many people planning extended stays there this year, it made a lot of sense for us to open a temporary space. Our location on Worth Avenue is particularly exciting—we will be nestled between historic businesses, restaurants, and lively pedestrians vias. We look forward to welcoming the sunshine while engaging with collectors, colleagues and friends with whom we have a long history as well as those new to us.”
In celebration of the vibrant life of Palm Beach and the surrounding area, the inaugural exhibition will present drawings and sculpture by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen with a focus on their images of food, sport, music, and other symbols of pleasure. Subsequent exhibitions will present exemplary works of painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed-media by artists including Cecily Brown, Sol LeWitt, Eric N. Mack, Paul Pfeiffer, and Dan Walsh, among others.
On Wednesday November 18, Carey Young will give a public lecture on her work as a guest of Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in Switzerland. The event will be streamed at 5pm BST (12pm EST). All are welcome. Click “View Source” below for the Zoom link. Password: 555677View Source
Céleste Boursier-Mougenot miner(e)ality in Booth B316 of the xiàn chăng section of West Bund Art & Design 2020 from November 12 through 15, 2020.
Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to announce miner(e)ality, a special presentation by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot in the xiàn chăng section of West Bund Art & Design 2020 in Shanghai from November 12 through 15, 2020 at Booth B316. The xiàn chăng section is comprised of solo presentations by international artists, which are installed inside and outside the West Bund Art Center, spanning the West Bund arts district and existing urban venues.
The art installations of Céleste Boursier-Mougenot (b. Nice, 1961) are investigations into sound and space, often fostering altered perceptual states of suspension and daydreaming. His new site-specific installation miner(e)ality is made of crushed recycled glass and large rocks to create a landscape of visual and sonic elements. As the viewer enters the work and experiences it from within, the crunching and shifting of glass pebbles underfoot contrasts with the hieratic, circular arrangement of river rocks. Once activated, the work becomes a dreamscape, a place of rest where sensory information is filtered and distilled. Boursier-Mougenot, who is internationally celebrated for his sophisticated interactive installations, will exhibit a version of this piece at the Ocean Flower Island Museum in Hainan in 2021.
Artists Tauba Auerbach and Cecily Brown will design limited edition porcelain plates to be sold during a 10-day special online event in November. All proceeds will go toward the Coalition for the Homeless’ work to support homeless and poor New Yorkers in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.View Source
