DIALOGUES WITH A COLLECTION

30 June - 15 September 2018
Private view Friday 29 June, 6pm - 8pm

Dialogues with A Collection presents a stage of relationships between artists and the collection of Laure Genillard. Eleven artists have been invited to engage with different works from the collection with either a newly constructed or an existing work, creating a trail of impromptu correspondences across the gallery space.

The collection on display is symptomatic of the gallery’s thirty-year history and the artist-gallery kinships that ensued, along with other acquisitions independent of the gallery programme. Together the collection and their chosen correspondents represent the aesthetic and conceptual ethos of the Laure Genillard Gallery and readdress the desire to test art’s ability to be both communicative and autonomous.
