„La peinture abstraite“
Shimon Minamikawa, Anna Schachinger, Lui Shtini, Kate Spencer Stewart
18.1.–16.2.2019

LA MAISON DE RENDEZ-VOUS is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition, „La peinture abstraite“. The exhibition features four contemporary painters who engage with or put pressure on abstraction in painting today. Whether looking at its proximity to figuration, developing a specific personal language, exploiting its gestural and affective immediacy, or reducing it to its most basic mark-making components, the sum total of this group of artists demonstrates and revels in how far abstraction has come from its dogmatic origins and just how elastic it, as a term and form, has become.
