Galerie Lelong & Co. is exhibiting a series of works on paper: collages, monotypes, lithographs and paintings accompanied by a sculpture and enamelled lava by the American artist James Brown. Produced between 1986 and 1992, these works pay testimony to the artist’s “Parisian years” and will be on display in the bookshop.

Exhibitions

James Brown was born in Los Angeles in 1951 and now lives in Merida, Mexico. Already, in 1978, the Gemeentemuseum in Arnheim, The Netherlands, gave him his first institutional one-man show. Since then, his work has been exhibited in a number of important American and European museums. Recently, the contemporary art museum in Oaxaca and the Diego Rivera-Anaguacalli museum in Mexico paid tribute to him with the organisation of two major exhibitions.
