Claude Rutault opening at Galerie Perrotin, New York

Galerie Perrotin presents Claude Rutault’s first solo exhibition in America following four decades of prominent and influential practice in France. Rutault’s work, beginning with a 1974 show staged at the office of a Parisian psychoanalyst, has consistently approached painting as a social practice embedded in the living relationships between artwork, artist, gallery, collector, museum and auction house. The exhibition features sixteen de-finition/methods spanning Rutault’s career. The mainspring of Rutault’s practice is the writing and issuing of a set of rules, caveats, instructions and procedures according to which a gallery, collector, or institution – known as the “charge-taker” agrees to “actualize” a given work. Photo Elise Gallant
