Perrotin is pleased to introduce JR’s newest series, Les Enfants d’Ouranos. Building upon Déplacé-e-s which shares the stories of refugee children from around the world, this project explores the tensions between the visible and invisible. The title of the exhibition translates to The Children of Ouranos—referring to the primordial Greek god of the sky who fathered the Titans, the first gods—and associates JR’s subjects with holiness.
Galerie Perrotin New York opened its doors to a new body of work by Izumi Kato. After a 5 year hiatus, Kato returns to New York with an ambitious exhibition of new mixed-media sculptures, installation, and paintings. Enfolding across two floors of the historic Beckenstein building, the exhibition culminates in a tableaux of connected fabric and soft vinyl sculptures, suspended from the gallery’s three-story stairwell.
