Claude Lalanne

1925 - 2019

April 10, 2019

Kasmin is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of renowned artist Claude Lalanne in Ury, France, on April 10. Working over five decades, both individually and together with her husband Francois-Xavier Lalanne (1927-2008), Claude developed a style that defines inventive, poetic and surrealist sculpture. Having rediscovered the Renaissance art of casting forms from life, then employing contemporary electro-plating techniques, she achieved a delicacy and sensitivity in her work unparalleled in cast bronze.

Bosco Sodi Unveils Monumental Work "Atlantes" in Oaxaca, Mexico

March 4, 2019

Kasmin, Blain|Southern, and Galería Hilario Galguera are delighted to announce the unveiling of Atlantes, a new monumental site-specific work by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi on March 4, 2019. Situated along the Oaxacan coast nearby to the artist’s foundation, Casa Wabi, in the largely uninhabited area near to Puerto Escondido, Mexico, Atlantes is the most ambitious work of land art in the region in recent years. Demanding over two years of construction, the project consists of 64 clay cubes of 7 feet x 7 feet x 7 feet; each cube is composed of 1,600 clay bricks made by hand by Sodi and a team of local craftsman in a traditional Oaxacan kiln nearby to the site. In total, the installation is the sum of over 102,000 clay bricks, weighing over 700 tonnes.

Announcing Representation of Matvey Levenstein

February 26, 2019

Kasmin is pleased to announce the representation of Matvey Levenstein.

Matvey Levenstein’s paintings explore themes of history and representation, speaking to the relevance of Romanticism in the 21st Century. His quiet meditations are filtered through the most traditional painterly genres—the landscape, the still life, and the portrait—and are imbued with a distinctly literary sensitivity. A sincere engagement with nature, combined with the prevalent cinematic aspects of Levenstein’s work, call to mind radical 20th-century filmmakers such as Andrei Tarkovsky and Ingmar Bergman.

Levenstein’s current eponymous exhibition at Kasmin was reviewed by Peter Schjeldahl of The New Yorker, as “fantastically skilled and sensitive [...] Levenstein’s temerity fascinates.” For The New Criterion, critic Robert Becker wrote, “There’s an all-over radiance coming from somewhere beneath the surfaces of Levenstein’s paintings, dispersing light evenly like a fine mist on a still morning. It’s an artist’s trick, and heaven knows how he mastered it.” The exhibition will close on March 2, 2019.

Brancusi & Duchamp: The Art of Dialogue

A New Publication

January, 2019

Kasmin Gallery is delighted to announce its newest publication in conjunction with the show Brancusi & Duchamp: The Art of Dialogue (September 20, 2018 - December 22, 2018). The text, written by curator Paul B. Franklin, explores the aesthetic dialogue between Constantin Brancusi (1876–1957) and Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968), two of the most inimitable artists of the 20th century. Brancusi and Duchamp struck up a friendship in the 1910s that endured for decades.

This fully illustrated catalogue presents a selection of 80 sculptures, objects, photographs, films and drawings from an international array of public and private collections, as well as a selection of rare archival documents. Highlights include one lifetime Brancusi sculpture and four posthumous casts in polished bronze; numerous vintage photographic prints by the sculptor of some of his most iconic creations; several of Duchamp’s readymades; and other works including his chess treatise Opposition and Sister Squares Are Reconciled (1932), the cover of which he designed in collaboration with Brancusi.

Barbican Centre Announces Lee Krasner: Living Colour

Discover Krasner’s spirit for invention – from striking early self-portraits to her acclaimed ‘Little Image’ paintings from the 1940s, from collages comprised of torn-up earlier work to a selection of her most impressive large-scale abstract paintings.
