Rue Isidore Verheyden 2
Galerie Albert Baronian is pleased to present Monocrime, a group exhibition with Larry Bell, Alan Charlton, Paul Fägerskiöld, Marcia Hafif, Joseph Marioni, Olivier Mosset, Joshua Smith and Pieter Vermeersch.
In a widely read article on GalleristNY.com, the young painter Joshua Smith reviewed an exhibition of an elder Josh Smith, which consisted, in part, of a roomful of monochrome paintings. The younger artist argued in the piece, that every painter of monochromes has a unique purpose for engaging with the practice. This exhibition assembles artists from different generations and backgrounds, each of whom make use of the monochrome for diverse reasons. The title of our exhibition; Monocrime playfully refers to a varying degree of “monochromeness” on view, and with the historic position of the monochrome as a symbol of, or site for oppositional or even radical practices and politics.
