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.
