Gabriel Rico
Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin


Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin

Neons, taxidermy, ceramics, tree branches … Gabriel Rico, one of the main representatives of the blossoming Mexican art scene, likes to organize objects into installations where human beings and nature join in an unnatural marriage. His disparate creations, which somewhat bring to mind Frida Kahlo in her Casa Azul de Coyoacán, spread across the four rooms of the galerie Perrotin (and do go upstairs to discover the Los Angeles of Jean-Philippe Delhomme) and confront the visitor with the question: “Where is nature hiding?”
Through July 13. Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin. 76 rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris.

Marcos Carrasquer
Galerie Polaris


Galerie Polaris

He may be Catalan, but it’s crazy to see how the imagination of Marcos Carrasquer takes inspiration from the universes of Eugène Delacroix, Gilbert Crumb and Peter Saul when composing his paintings that are saturated with details. Carrasquer likes to draw insignificant actions of our everyday lives – chewing gum, changing a light bulb – and mixing them with figures that he has encountered throughout his life - Margaret Thatcher, skater Tonya Harding, Richard Nixon… His ink on paper drawings, where black and white bring even more power to his perspective, are particularly impressive.
Through July 13. Galerie Polaris. 15 rue des Arquebusiers, 75003 Paris.

Iris Levasseur and Marko Velk
Galerie Odile Ouizeman


Galerie Odile Ouizeman

How is the artist’s gaze formed? This is the enigma that Odile Ouizeman invites its artists Iris Levasseur and Marko Velk to tackle. In response, the gallery owner looked toward the pioneers of photography: From Maxime Du Camp’s images of Egypt, to the petrified bodies of Pompéi by Giorgio Sommer, to the antiquities in the British Museum photographed by W.A Mansell, to which Marko ‘s impressive charcoal drawings and Iris Levasseur’s spectacular watercolors formulate an answer. A prodigious back-and-forth between the XIXth and XXIst centuries.
Through July 13. Galerie Odile Ouizeman. 10/12 rue des Coutures Saint-Gervais, 75003 Paris.

« Summer »
Galerie Almine Rech


Galerie Almine Rech

En 2019, gallery owner Almine Rech opened a new space in Shanghai. A few months later, she brought a group exhibit to the Chinese public entitled “Summer”. As an echo to this “group show,” her Parisian space will present “Summer” starting on June 13, as the gallery comes out of confinement. Included in the show are a few of the gallery’s key artists like the historical names Karel Appel, John M Armleder and Allen Jones, in response to works from some of the solid names of today’s generation, like the colorful abstractions of Jean-Baptiste Bernardet, the erotism of Tursic & Mille (our faves) or the wide-eyed characters of Brian Calvin. A massive color explosion from one of the best Parisian galleries.
June 13 through August 1st. Galerie Almine Rech. 64 rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris.
