Rudolf Stingel’s current exhibition presents two new bodies of work. The first room of the gallery displays large pattern paintings that recall Baroque tapestries in striking magenta. In a second room, large chromed nickel panels (made from the same Celotex insulation panels the artist has used to completely cover museum and gallery exhibition spaces in the past) adorn the walls like gleaming large-scale mirrors.

Curated by Pierpaolo Campanini, Adrian Paci’s sixth show at Kaufmann Repetto features two large-scale mosaics and a selection of drawings. In both mediums, Paci combines references to his own personal history with “borrowed” archival material such as news footage sourced from YouTube.
“No Drones” presents a series of tracings Louise Lawler made from her own photographs. Working with artist and children’s-book illustrator Jon Buller, Lawler transformed these tracings into wall drawings made of black adhesive vinyl. Playing with notions of scale and permanence, works from this series can be printed at any size and the outputs destroyed after each presentation.

Celebrating the entirety of Segantini’s short, but intense career, the exhibition is divided into eight chronological sections and also features some of artist’s personal affairs including letters, photographs, and books.
