Peggy Leboeuf has worked with Emmanuel Perrotin, founder of gallery Perrotin, since 1996. In September of 2013 she successfully launched the New York gallery space at 909 Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side. Today, she is the Executive Director of the new Perrotin gallery located at 130 Orchard St on the Lower East Side.
To mark the first exhibition at the new Orchard St space, and writing exclusively for GalleriesNow.net, Peggy has chosen ten top exhibitions - taking in Brooklyn, the French town of Sète, Dallas, New York and Chicago.
Sophie Calle Here Lie the Secrets of the Visitors of Green-Wood Cemetery
A Creative Time commission at the Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, USA
I chose this because I genuinely believe it is a beautiful project and because she is a marvelous artist that I have worked with since 2001.
This is a project where secrets given remain untold, and so will the ones you can share with her on the 29th and 30th of April. She will be waiting, ready to receive them !
CRAC Sète, France
This is a larger solo show with mostly new pieces, it is a challenge ! It is lovely to see Jean-Michel Othoniel back in Sète, where he started 29 years ago.
The director and curator there is Noelle Tissier, she is great to work with and very engaging.
Iván Argote La Venganza Del Amor
Perrotin New York, USA
Perrotin’s new location at 130 Orchard Street will open its first exhibition on April 27th with Colombian-born artist Iván Argote on the ground floor.
It will be his first solo show in New York.
Pia Camil Bara, Bara, Bara
Dallas Contemporary, USA
This large installation created with tee shirts brings so much joy and a new point of view.
Whitney Museum, New York, USA
An important show to see !
The 2017 Whitney Biennial, the seventy-eighth installment of the longest-running survey of American art, arrives at a time rife with racial tensions, economic inequities, and polarizing politics. Throughout the exhibition, artists challenge us to consider how these realities affect our senses of self and community. The Biennial features sixty-three individuals and collectives whose work takes a wide variety of forms, from painting and installation to activism and video-game design.
Autumn Ahn A Tall Action Is Not A Height curated by Anissa Touati
The Chimney NYC, USA
There are three reasons combined why I love this show: Anissa Touati is a curator with whom I did the group show in Paris ¿Cómo te voy a olvidar?
Autumn Ahn is a great artist, performer and beautiful woman, and the young director Clara Darrason, is so sweet and passionate about her work.
