Imaginary Ancestors : at Almine Rech Gallery New York

Almine Rech Gallery New York

Bernard de Grunne as guest curator for Arts of Africa

 

Imaginary Ancestors looks at Primitivism in modern and contemporary art, on the one hand restaging a seminal 1933 Durand-Ruel Gallery exhibition in New York of Fang sculptures and contemporary paintings of the time, and on the other hand presenting a parallel exhibition of Primitivist modern and affiliated contemporary works by Joe Bradley, Mark Grotjahn, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, Ana Mendieta, James Turrell and Erika Verzutti, among others.
