Olivier Mosset at the Kitchen

Filed under: Artists,News and Events,Olivier Mosset — admin @ 4:45 pm

Olivier Mosset presents, Exposition de groupe, a collaborative show currently on view at two locations in New York: The Kitchen and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.

At The Kitchen, Mosset is showing large letter-shaped monochromatic paintings spelling out various words like “Tu’m” and “Mutt”, referencing Marcel Duchamp and his notion of the readymade. These monochromes are on view alongside a projection of Serge Bard’s 1968 Fun and Games for Everyone, a film of the viewers who attended Mosset’s first gallery opening in Paris.

Uptown at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Mosset has installed nine large-scale monochromes alongside custom Harley Davidson and Triumph motorcycles made in collaboration with Indian Larry (Lawrence DeSmedt). Also shown is T.S.O.Y.W. (“The Sorrows of Young Werther”),  a video collaboration Mosset created with Amy Granat and Drew Heitzler which follows a young protagonist as he rides a motorcycle across America, passing famous earthworks along the way.

Olivier Mosset at La Salle de Bains

Tell the Children / Abstraction Pour Enfants
Group show at La Salle de Bains Lyon
April 3  - June 10th, 2012
Opening: March 31st

Artists: Christian Floquet, Jean-Luc Manz, Stéphane Dafflon, Philippe Decrauzat, Ian Anüll, Claudia Compte, Mai-Thu Perret, John Armleder, Olivier Mosset, John Trembley, Dan Walsh, David Malek, Lisa Beck, Jakob Kassay, Emil-Michael Klein, Flora Klein, Richard Kirwan, Stéphane Kropf

Tell The Children / Abstraction Pour Enfants is a proposal by the Swiss artist Francis Baudevin which refers to Andy Warhol’s Children’s Book produced in 1983 at Galerie Bischofberger of Zurich. At La Salle de Bains in Lyon, Baudevin takes the side of the cover or remake because fits the display abstract painting that Warhol had designed for his Pop works. Abstract painting, mainly geometric, is presented here to the tune of children so they can fully enjoy the works and, perhaps, see what we no longer see as adults. This exhibition is both a work in itself, an installation and a free hand. It invites us to find our inner child and to unlearn or better (re) learn to look at abstraction. Commissioned by Francis and Caroline Baudevin Be Petithomme

Olivier Mosset ++ Leaving the Museum
Kunsthalle Zürich at Museum Bärengasse

The Kunsthalle Zürich will mark the end of its temporary exhibition activity at the Museum Bärengasse with a project by Swiss artist Olivier Mosset, which was developed especially for the exhibition space at the Museum Bärengasse.

The exhibition is staged in 16 rooms of the Museum Bärengasse and presents a range of works, which have been integrated into the features of the space. Leaving the Museum combines a large selection of Mosset’s paintings with works created in collaboration with other artists, works which arose in his circle and works inspired by him. Olivier Mosset approaches the Museum Bärengasse’s numerous individual rooms as individual exhibitions in themselves, which together provide an insight into his wide-ranging œuvre and artistic practice.
