Almine Rech's salon-style exhibition showcases the continuously thriving art of painting at the New York 'Salon De Peinture' art installation. The gallery's crowded walls at the 39 East 78th Street location brings attention to the history and vitality of painting.
By drawing on the tradition of French salon shows, which began in the 17th century, the uncurated installation draws attention to contemporary art styles. The show presents a survey of work without commentary or criteria, as traditionally seen in salon-style exhibitions. Rather than setting gallery rules and guidelines that ultimately exclude several artists from the show - as was the case for avant-garde Impressionist artists Monet and Renoir - the idea is to showcase all talent.
