Renate Aller Solo Exhibition at the Parrish Art Museum

Catherine Couturier Gallery is proud to announce that gallery artist, Renate Aller, recently opened a solo exhibiton at the Parrish Art Museum in New York. The exhibition, "Renate Aller: The Space Between Memory and Expectation,” is an immersive installation of large scale, mystical images from the artist’s series “Ocean | Desert” and “Mountain Interval".

The exhibiton opened March 24th and will be on view through July 18th. For those of you visiting or living in New York, you won't want to miss this opportunity to see Renate's larger than life photographs.

Renate Aller and Parrish Art Musuem Curator, Terrie Sultan


focused exhibition of works by the German-born photographer illuminating her exploration of the interrelationship of romanticism, memory, and place through dynamic compositions rich with implied narratives. The exhibition features 12 large-scale archival prints in a gallery installation specifically designed to present a compositionally unified environment. Presenting works drawn from ongoing series Ocean | Desert and Mountain Interval, the exhibition draws together disparate landscapes through the continuity of the horizon line. Dramatic images of the Atlantic Ocean, vast sand dunes in New Mexico and Colorado, and the majestic mountain ranges in Alaska, Switzerland, Italy, and Nepal come together to explore “the interval, the space in between … during which apparently nothing happens, but without which no change could happen,” Aller explains. “The Space Between Memory and Expectation is another way to describe this state of stillness and transition.”

A part of Parrish Perspectives—a series of concentrated exhibitions that offers the Museum opportunities to respond spontaneously and directly to unique ways of thinking about art, artists, and the creative process. In the immersive installation, seven photographs of dramatic ranges and peaks from Mountain Interval are aligned with five prints from Ocean | Desert—broad expanses of sea and sand. The viewer is surrounded by a panorama that smoothly transitions from mountains to ocean as the eye is guided from image to image along a compositionally coherent horizon line. 

Renate Aller: The Space Between Memory and Expectation is made possible, in part, by the support of Belinda Buck Keilland, Krista and Michael Dumas, Janice Sarah Hope, Adam Miller Group, Marc Olivié and Marleen De Bode Olivié, and Michèle and Steven Pesner.
