In Ursula K. Le Guin's 1986 essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, she argues against a masculinist monumentalizing impulse of history, and offers up a different proposition for the way culture can exist and can be formed. This ‘carrier bag theory’ challenges that the first tool was in fact a vessel for gathering, and not an instrument of conquest, and that a male-centric society has conditioned us to negate the former in favor of a broader ‘heroic’ narrative. Le Guin takes this further, proposing the heroic narrative within literature (to vanquish, to conquer) is an obsolete form, and suggests that a more complex structure—based on the vessel—should develop instead. This, she posits, would allow for multiple points of view, and engender a more inclusive panoply of voices within the form. No Patience for Monuments brings together the work of a dozen artists whose work and practices embrace multiple facets of Le Guin's subversive push against the overarching historical narrative. A group of voices that call to question the history of artistic representation, the process of writing—and monumentalizing—this history, and offering a presage of a new way forward.

New York Gallery Reopening

Perrotin New York is open with limited capacity through August 14. We remain open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am - 6pm and for select appointments on Mondays. Reservations are preferred, and can be made by phone, email (bookingny@perrotin.com), or through the See Saw app. 

The well-being of our community is our priority, and we have implemented strict precautionary measures for both our staff and visitors by: limiting capacity and carefully monitoring flow throughout the gallery, requiring all visitors and staff to wear a mask, providing touch-free hand sanitizer on each floor, retro-fitting all desks with plexiglass screens, making exhibition leaflets accessible via QR code, conducting routine cleanings of all surfaces, and implementing an RSVP system in the event that we need to assist public health officials with contact tracing.
