L'impasse Ronsin

Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York, United States
27 October 2016 - 14 January 2017
Taking as a focal point the historic Parisian alley that once housed the studios of Constantin Brancusi, William N. Copley, Max Ernst, Yves Klein, The Lalanne, James Metcalf, Larry Rivers, Niki St. Phalle, Daniel Spoerri, Jean Tinguely and many other post-war artists, the exhibition will include the work of these artists in an installation designed to embody the historical spirit of L'impasse Ronsin.

More than anything else, collaboration and perpetual dialogue defined the Impasse Ronsin. In 1961, it was the locale in which Nike de Saint Phalle famously staged her “Shooting Paintings” with the help of Jean Tinguely, Yves Klein and Pierre Restany. On view in Impasse Ronsin will be Tir (Fragment de Dracula II), 1961 – one of the most substantial and important works from the series.
