A precursor of the renewal of ceramics in contemporary art, Johan Creten is a key player on the international scene, as demonstrated by his participation in many international exhibitions featuring his work, from the US to Turkey via the Netherlands, France and Italy, among others. Following in the footsteps of Della Robbia, Paul Gauguin and Lucio Fontana, and standing alongside Thomas Schütte and Karel Appel, the work of Johan Creten fraternizes with many antecedents and is an invitation to redraw a fruitful genealogy, one that is particularly attentive to raw materials – earth, air and fire. With his Alfred Paintings, the Flemish artist reached new heights, like a tightrope walker making his way between sculpture and painting, between the earth and the sky. Colin Lemoine

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 (, 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.
