David Kordansky will present 13-exhibited artist Andrea Büttner and the multimedia installation of her recent sculptures, prints, glass paintings. The Nogueras Blanchard will present the work by there amazing artists – Michiel Ceulers, Anne-Lise Coste and Wilfredo Prieto. Ceulers moves the boundaries of conceptual and performative paintings with his experimental approach to abstraction, from tactile grids to shaped canvases and collages. Coste is known for her radical approach, in which the creative potential of her art is articulated in the spontaneous gesture, while the work by Prieto are representing the apparently indecipherable dofficulties of our societies. The extraordinary works by Navid Nuur and Achraf Touloub will be presented at the booth of PLAN B Gallery. Joe Kyack, who is exploring Americana through performances, sculpture and drawings, will be present at the Praz Delavallade from Paris. Finally, the kurimanzutto gallery from Mexico City will bring a sculpture from 1997 by the famous Jimmie Durham.
