Pivi’s presentation entitled “We are the baby gang” will take over the third floor of the gallery, displaying a total of 75 handmade feather bears in a kaleidoscopic color palette. The artist’s practice involves merging the familiar and the alien while also evoking her personal experiences within each piece.
As for Rutault, it marks the artist’s fifth show with the gallery that consists of four historical paintings from the 70s for the exhibition entitled “de-finitions/methods from the 70s.” Since 1973, the artist’s radical process involved painting his canvas the same color as the wall on which it was mounted.
Lastly, John Henderson’s “Model” show highlights the artist’s signature, multi-layered paintings that boast various textures. His ethereal pieces touch upon the themes of “presence and absence” as well as “doing and undoing” while overturning them in each visual narrative displayed.
View select works in the slideshow above and head over to Perrotin’s website to learn more about each presentation. The exhibitions will collectively launch on April 25.

#SaveTheDate – One week left before the opening of Paola Pivi’s exhibition at Perrotin New York! ✨ – We are super happy to present Paola Pivi’s 9th solo show with the gallery. The artist returns to New York 6 years after her last solo show which marked the inauguration of Perrotin New York on Madison Avenue, and following her successful solo show at Bass Museum Miami this winter. ? • • Seventy baby polar bears frolic, play, fight, nap, and explore the top floor of Perrotin New York. Instead of fur, the bears have sprouted florescent feathers. The polar ice caps are melting. In order to survive a changing climate, they have needed to adapt. They occupy a space between fantasy and reality—frozen in their stances, yet with the impression that they could spring to life at any moment. • – ? Opening on April 25, 5-8pm! @paolapivi #Opening #Exhibition #PerrotinNewYork #Perrotin – Artwork: Paola Pivi, ‘TBT’, 2019. Urethane foam, plastic, feathers.
