Celebrating three decades of collaboration, the Massimo De Carlo gallery presents a new exhibition of works by Olivier Mosset. The Swiss artist’s works adopt a unique approach to conceptual and abstract painting, as visitors can observe for themselves at the gallery’s Milan venue until March 10, 2018.

Olivier Mosset is well known for his minimalist practice that investigates conceptual abstraction through painting. The artist explores a variety of monochrome color blocks, surfaces, geometrical patterns, and dimensions via the methodical repetition of gestures: a radical and dynamic approach to the canvas; that refuses to take on any form of subjectivity. The exhibition is structured as a small retrospective, a narrative where the artist has selected a number of works from different periods of his career that allow the viewer to grasp the essence of his work from the sixties to the now.

In the first room of the exhibition, Olivier Mosset chose to display three monumental canvases. At the centre of the room there is a colossal work, composed of a purple and a red block – it is a tribute to the thirty years of the artist’s collaboration with the gallery: Sun City was shown in the first exhibition by Olivier Mosset at Massimo De Carlo’s original gallery space in Milan in 1987.

The exhibition is on view through March 10, 2018 at Massimo De Carlo, Piazza Belgioioso, 2 - 20121 Milan, Italy.
