    In contrast to radical Minimal Art, Gerwald Rockenschaub (*1952) has never distanced himself from popular culture; rather, the artist has continually sought a cross-over between art, design, media and everyday life. He freed the minimalistic concept from its rigid rules and created an individual "funky minimalistic" style. In addition to developing an independent artistic position, Rockenschaub also works as an internationally successful DJ. Art and music are a fruitful symbiosis. His early Neo-Geo style paintings have exactly the format of LP covers. In Base 103, he continues the artistic dialogue surrounding the creative freedom of minimal art pursued in the exhibition "FarbRaumKörper" using other means and as an extension into the space.

    Artists and their Belief: Lecture & Discussion with Bazon Brock. Introduction and moderation: Walter Smerling

    Bazon Brock - Philospher, artist and emiritus Professor for aesthetics devotes himself to latest themes in the Arts such as Art and Religion: what do artists believe in? Which promise do they give? What do we expect from Arts and artists? What can we expect from them? Is it only about the increase in market value? Or is it about content and if so, about which content?

    Dans le cadre de l’exposition Lucinda Childs / Sol LeWitt, Lucinda Childs s’entretiendra avec Béatrice Gross, historienne de l'art, et Lou Foster, commissaire de l’exposition, à la galerie Thaddaeus Ropac de Pantin le 18 novembre 2016 à 18h30.

    Cet échange sera l’occasion de revenir sur la collaboration exceptionnelle de ces deux artistes qui a vu naître Dance (1979), l’une des pièces chorégraphiques les plus importantes du 20ème siècle, sur une musique de Philip Glass. Les diagrammes et dessins préparatoires de Lucinda Childs présentés dans l’exposition ont servi de matière première à Sol LeWitt pour construire le story-board de l’unique film qu’il n’ait jamais réalisé. Conçu comme un élément clé du dispositif scénique, le film remplace le décor habituel par une projection dédoublée et synchronisée du mouvement des danseurs. L’harmonie parfaite entre la performance, l’enregistrement de celle-ci et la musique fait de Dance une véritable œuvre d’art total.

    In conjunction with the exhibition “Lucinda Childs | Sol LeWitt” at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Pantin, Arts Arena hosts a conversation between Lucinda Childs and Robert Storr.    

    Dancer and choreographer Lucinda Childs created the iconic Minimalist production Dance (1979), with music by Philip Glass and sets and films by visual artist Sol LeWitt: “one of the greatest achievements of the 20th Century” (Wall Street Journal). Robert Storr has been called one of the world’s most influential voices in contemporary art. Formerly Senior Curator at MoMA, Commissioner of the Venice Biennale, and Dean of the Yale School of Art, he has written extensively on Minimalist artists, including Sol LeWitt: Scribble Wall Drawings.

    This Arts Arena interdisciplinary conversation was first presented in New York City to great acclaim.

    Free and open to the public. A reception follows.

    Reservations are required: rsvp@artsarena.org

    Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac will open a gallery in Ely House in Mayfair, London, in Spring 2017.

    Considered one of the finest eighteenth-century mansions in London, Ely House was built in 1772 by Sir Robert Taylor. 37 Dover Street was named Ely House when it was commissioned by Bishop Edmond Keene of Ely to be his London residence. It remained an episcopal home until the early twentieth century when it was extensively remodelled in 1909 for its use as the Albemarle Club by the respected Arts & Crafts architectural firm Smith and Brewer.

    The gallery will be led by Polly Robinson Gaer. Spread over five floors and over 1,500 m2 (16,000 ft2), it will benefit from four distinct gallery spaces. Situated at 37 Dover Street, the ground floor also includes an additional exhibition space in the adjunct building overlooking Berkeley Street. New York-based architect Annabelle Selldorf will sensitively renovate the listed building.

    With Elodie Cazes and Laurence Dreyfus

    On the occasion of the exhibition WASTELAND: NEW ART FROM L.A., Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is organizing a public lecture to better understand the artistic scene in Los Angeles that raises as much interest as it does questions.
    Who is part of this new generation of artists in Los Angeles? Where do they come from? Where have they studied and what is their practice? Who are the collectors and institutional players? What is the dynamics between artists, galleries and museums? Is there a market? What is the landscape and the role of galleries and fairs in Los Angeles?
    Elodie Cazes (Director art collection agnès b) and Laurence Dreyfus (Advisor Contemporary Art) will discuss this and more. 
    You are invited to attend this exciting debate at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Pantin on Saturday, May 21st, 2016 during the CHOICES Collectors' Weekend.
