Dialogues with A Collection presents a stage of relationships between artists and the collection of Laure Genillard. Eleven artists have been invited to engage with different works from the collection with either a newly constructed or an existing work, creating a trail of impromptu correspondences across the gallery space.
The collection on display is symptomatic of the gallery’s thirty-year history and the artist-gallery kinships that ensued, along with other acquisitions independent of the gallery programme. Together the collection and their chosen correspondents represent the aesthetic and conceptual ethos of the Laure Genillard Gallery and readdress the desire to test art’s ability to be both communicative and autonomous.
This year marks thirty years since the gallery first opened on Foley Street in London in 1988. The entire gallery exhibition archive will be launched online to coincide with the exhibiton.
