Ronchini Gallery, together with Archivo Marca-Relli, Parma, is proud to present the second solo exhibition in the UK of works by the renowned Abstract Expressionist Conrad-Marca Relli.

About

A central figure in the New York School of Abstract Expressionism that emerged after the Second World War, Marca- Relli’s career spans many decades and two continents. A contemporary of artists such as Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, Marca-Relli’s works are made on the same monumental scale for which the Abstract Expressionist movement is known, yet Marca-Relli’s practice is unique amongst his compatriots for he rejected paint in favour of collage, a medium which Marca-Relli is now synonymous with.

Featuring key works from the 1960s and 70s, a crucial period in the artist’s prolific career, the exhibition will include both collage works as well as a painted aluminium sculpture made in a unique assemblage fashion. Works by Marca-Relli have been exhibited multiple prestigious institutions internationally, yet this will be the first time these works have ever been displayed in the UK, which presents a rare opportunity to see a large group of Marca-Relli works from a key period brought together in a cohesive exhibition.

Gallery owner Lorenzo Ronchini notes:

It has been 7 years since we held the UK’s first solo exhibition of works by Conrad-Marca Relli and over 50 years since the artist had his first ever retrospective (which was held at the Whitney Museum), so I am extremely proud to work with the artist’s Archive again to bring together this incredible group of works for the London audience.
