Hiba Kalache

Artsy notes that “… in her abstract paintings, Kalache applies a soft palette as a background, passionately covered with bursts of color and thickly contoured scribbles, almost acting as open, fresh wounds. Looking closely, there are visual hints of floral and erotic elements, evoking an atmosphere of violence, tension, and a glimmer of delicateness, where everything seems to coexist.”

Janaina Tschäpe

“Between the Sky and the Water” is a mid-career retrospective of Janaina Tschäpe (b. Munich, Germany 1973). Tschäpe’s wide-ranging oeuvre is visually connected by a lexicon of forms that array across a variety of media—painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, photography, video, and performance.


Mildred Thompson

Artforum notes that Galerie Lelong & Co. is presenting “Throughlines: Assemblages and Works on Paper from the 1960s to the 1990s,” a selection of works by the late artist. Her Wood Pictures began in New York and further developed in Düren, Germany during Thompson’s self-imposed exile.
