Opening reception Saturday 16 November / 4pm – 9pm
Exhibition from 13 November 2013 to 11 January 2014
Galerie Perrotin, Paris

Galerie Perrotin is delighted to present “Body Loud”, an exhibition by Ryan McGinley, comprised of twenty brand new, primarily large-format photographs taken over the course of last summer. This is his first show with the gallery.

Since 2005, McGinley has spent each summer developing his ongoing body of road-trip photographs. He and his crew travel the country to capture non-professional models in a variety of natural settings. The production of these images has evolved greatly since their inception—what began as fly-on-the wall documentation now consists of rigorous and intense production schedules, elaborate safety precautions, and mobile studio lighting. The situations are meticulously staged, although the resultant images are not: McGinley’s practice still allows for and thrives upon spontaneity.

The Daelim Museum, in Seoul, is presenting “Magic Magnifier,” a comprehensive survey of Ryan McGinley’s work, running from November 7, 2013, to February 23, 2014.

Ryan McGinley is a New York-based artist who was raised in New Jersey and moved to the city in 1996. In 2003, at age 25, Ryan McGinley was the youngest artist to receive a solo exhibition at The Whitney Museum of American Art (“The Kids Are Alright”). McGinley’s work is featured in numerous museum collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, Washington and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He has been the subject of monographic exhibitions at the Kunsthalle in Vienna, MUSAC in Leon, Spain, and MOMA PS1 in New York. He has had numerous one-man gallery and museum exhibitions around the world.

SOPHIE CALLE “Dérobés”
Opening reception Saturday 16 November / 4pm – 9pm
Exhibition from 13 November 2013 to 11 January 2014
Galerie Perrotin, Paris

The solo exhibition by Sophie Calle “Dérobés” is presented at Galerie Perrotin, Paris, from November 13, 2013 to January 11, 2014. Two series “What Do You See?” and “Purloined” as well as the artwork “Le Major Davel” are being displayed.

“What Do You See?”
On March 18, 1990, six paintings by Rembrandt, Flinck, Manet and Vermeer, five drawings by Degas, one vase, and one Napoleonic eagle were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. The frames of the Rembrandt, Vermeer and Flinck paintings were left behind.
In 1994, after being restored, the empty frames were hung back in place, further emphasizing the painting’s absence. I asked the curators, guards, other staff members and visitors to tell me what they saw within these frames.

“Purloined” 1994-2013
Following thefts involving a Lucian Freud painting and two Turners belonging to the Tate Gallery in London, a Picasso at the Richard Gray Gallery in Chicago, and a Titian from the Marquis of Bath’s residence, Longleat House, I asked the curators, guards, and other staff members of the Museums, gallery or collection, to describe the missing works.

“Le Major Davel” 1994
On the night between August 24 and 25, 1980, the painting by Charles Gleyre, Major Davel, was partly destroyed by fire that ensued from an act of vandalism. All that remained of the canvas was the crying soldier in the bottom right-hand corner. I asked the curators, guards, and other staff members at the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne to describe what they remembered of the missing part of the painting.

The artworks shown in the exhibition are featured in the book “Ghosts” published by Actes Sud which also reprinted recently “Detachment” and “True Stories” and launched her last book, “Voir la mer”. All the publications are available at the bookshop of the gallery.

The exhibition “Last Seen” is organized by The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, in Boston through March 3, 2014 ; “Take Care of Yourself” is currently on view at The Stavanger Art Museum, in Norway until January 26, 2014.

The solo show “Rachel, Monique” will be presented in May 2014 at The Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest in New York.
