Robert Rauschenberg: Spreads 1975-83

Robert Rauschenberg: Spreads 1975-83 installation view

The sun-soaked palette of Rauschenberg’s home on Captiva Island in Florida, where he settled in 1970, is injected into works like Lipstick (Spread) (1981), with its crimson umbrella and smear of bubble-gum pink. Umbrellas find their way back into another highlight of the show, Untitled (Spread) (1982), where two open parasols like blooming sunflowers bring harmony to a reel of collaged pictures of the American flag, shipping containers and lithe athletes.

Yonatan Vinitsky: Sortie Définitive

Yonatan Vinitsky: Sortie Definitive, Installation View

It is not unusual for Yonatan Vinitsky’s solo exhibitions to look like group exhibitions. The formal diversity of his works as well as that of the techniques used often produce a heterogeneous landscape that a distracted viewer would have trouble attributing to one and the same person. His solo exhibition at Mon Chéri brings together three of the artist’s new productions, along with two recent series of works.
