until 04.06. | #3447ARTatBerlin | Galerie Thomas Schulte shows from 23. April 2022 (Opening on 22.04.) the solo-exhibition Works 1970-1973 by the artist Allan McCollum.
As part of this year’s Gallery Weekend Berlin, Galerie Thomas Schulte presents an exhibition of Allan McCollum’s early series of paintings in its Main Space, alongside an interactive project created in collaboration with Matt Mullican in the gallery’s Corner Space. McCollum’s Constructed Paintings and Bleach Paintings series (both begun in 1969) reveal the processes of their making – of building up and stripping down, accumulating and erasing, respectively – while emphasizing mechanical repetition and systemized production. In the collaborative project Your Fate (2004), repetitive action and chance outcomes converge in the form of a fortune-telling dice game, which visitors can participate in during Gallery Weekend Berlin. Taken as a whole, the works in the exhibition illuminate McCollum’s serial, though variegated approach, as well as his ongoing engagement with typology.
Opening: Friday, 22. April 2022, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Exhibition dates: Saturday, 23. April – Saturday, 4. June 2022
