Futher information to come.

Through the figures of emblematic spies, from Mata Hari to Carrie Mathison, and from OSS117 to Edward Snowden, this exhibition explores a new history of the relationship between cinema and espionage. It establishes as a starting point a mirror game between the two disciplines, practices par excellence involving capture, simulacrum and dissimulation.

The exhibition will travel to the CaixaForum in Madrid (from October 29, 2023 to June 29, 2023) and in Barcelona (from March 31, 2023 to November 29, 2024).

Art : Concept is pleased to present a series of recent paintings by the American artist.
Tommy Malekoff is inspired by the photographs he has taken over the past two years in the Everglades, in South Florida. He sidesteps the familiar, moralizing narrative of ecological decay, and illuminates instead a more nuanced dynamic between human beings and nature.

Art : Concept is pleased to present Whitney Bedford’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery.

The artist’s latest series brings together what she calls Vedute, a series of landscape paintings inspired by late nineteenth and early twentieth century masters – from Degas to Sérusier, Klimt or Van Gogh. As with her paintings of shipwrecks, icebergs, and rainforests, the California-based artist reappropriates this historical legacy and uses it as references for her autobiographical landscapes, which work as contemporary allegories of social and environmental experiences.

Contre-Nature (Against Nature) is an exhibition inhabited by insolent, hybrid shapes made of clay and enamel, such grotesque creatures compose a luxuriant, original, mysterious, troubling, or even hallucinatory world.
Nature is artifice, and artifice becomes nature in order to decategorize scales and values, as well as to reverse commonplaces regarding sculpture and the ceramic tradition. The works gathered concern ceramics less as folklore than as modeling and alchemy, technique, and magic. Water, earth, and fire are the essential, unrivaled components of these new worlds: « What we call against nature is in fact against custom. » (Montaigne)
