For the People of Paris - Viewing Room

For the People of Paris

17 October 2022 - 07 January 2023

Celebrating Campoli Presti's 20th anniversary, 'For the People of Paris' brings together the artistic community the gallery has built over time. The exhibition is the continuum of an eponymous show which took place in Paris in 2007 and which was a critical standpoint announcing an affinity between artists from both sides of the Atlantic that shaped the identity of the gallery for many years.

The ideas that guided 'For the People of Paris' (2007), such as the notion of authorship, the tension between the body and the digital, the coexistence of different materialities and the questioning of modes of display have only become more complex over the years.

In 2022, 'For the People of Paris' aims to show the ways in which the artist's community of artists has expanded its positions and genres, but remained solid at the same time.

Featuring one work per artist, the exhibition presents a constellation of different perspectives brought together not by a specific theme but by a generational and critical affinity.


Since the early 1990’s, Liz Deschenes has produced a body of work that emancipates photography from its conventional definition as a document and explores the material condition of the medium and its processes. Working without a camera, the silver-toned photograms that Deschenes makes are a direct record of atmospheric conditions during the process of their production: light, humidity, and the outside temperature, among other factors, determine the surface of the final works.

Liz Deschenes (b. 1966) lives and works in New York. Her work is currently included in the exhibition Une seconde d’éternité at the Pinault Collection - Bourse de Commerce, Paris. Her work has been exhibited internationally including solo exhibitions at Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco (2022); a series of exhibitions with Sol LeWitt at Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco (2017), Miguel Abreu Gallery and Paula Cooper Gallery, New York (2016); ICA Boston (2016); MASS MoCA, Massachusetts (2015); Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2014); and the Secession, Vienna (2012).


Cheyney Thompson’s work methodically deconstructs how painting is created, often imposing on his practice a set of constraints that involve mathematical formulas, protocols of observation and other orders of abstraction. His series of Displacement paintings posits each canvas’s ground as a touch-sensitive surface. The works adopt a uniform structure of fivemillimeter square black marks painted in a gridded pattern atop a white ground. Before the paint is dry, Thompson deploys an assortment of custom silicone tools against the surface, forcing the wet squares out of place. He adds no new material, but rather subjects the existing marks to this process of reorganisation. The resulting transformations appear as extensions of squares into lines, glyph-like forms, and sweeping, sinuous fields of paint.

Feinstein is a legendary painter whose work and ideas about abstraction have influenced generations of artists. Over the past four decades, she has deflated the dogmas of modernism with humor and verve, liberally borrowing from different schools of painting, as well as other mediums, including drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video, and installation. Though it takes myriad forms, her singular project always centers painting within culture at large. She moves freely through the history of late 20th-century painting, rejoicing in materiality while poking holes in the notion of pure painting.

One of the key aspects of Feinstein's early works from the 1990s’ is the reinterpretation of the modernist grid. Symbol of artistic autonomy, Feinstein uses the grid as a tool to deconstruct its authority and integrate the elements it was supposed to eradicate: lived experience, political criticism and even humour.

Rochelle Feinstein (b. 1947) lives and works in New York. A major survey exhibition of Feinstein’s work was shown at the Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva (2016), and subsequently travelled to Städtische Galerie in Lenbachhaus, Munich (2016), Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (2017), and the Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York (2018-2019). Past solo exhibitions include Kunsthaus Baselland (2018) and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University (2012). The artist was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.


Benni Bosetto (b. 1987) is an Italian artist based in Milan. Her work combining drawing, sculpture, installation and performance always involves the body and its gesture. Her artistic practice is based on the superposition of fragmented narratives from anthropology, religion, popular beliefs and art history. Her research draws in particular on the study of ancient and contemporary healing rituals, and on the states of semiconsciousness specific to meditation and sleep. Bosetto creates openended visual narratives in which the gaze wanders from one scene to another without ever focusing on a specific point.

The works on silk are inhabited by a multiplicity of unicellular organisms, humans, animals, saints, and visceral parasites all interconnected by biomechanical pipes that pass through their orifices to form a single living system. The drawings are freely executed by the artist directly on silk, mounted on cotton and framed in a handmade steel frame which give them a sculptural quality. When they are not absorbed in some kind of reflection, Benni Bosetto's characters are grappling with a series of ritual gestures and self-care exercises. The body reveals itself here as the origin of perception, the source of material knowledge and the holder of an intergenerational memory.

For the People of Paris : installation view Benni Bosetto and Daniel Lefcourt


Throughout his career, Daniel Lefcourt has continually engaged the space between painting and technical imaging. The Terraform series conveys the impression of abstract landscapes seen from an aerial perspective. The works continue the artist’s exploration of painting in relation to technical and scientific imaging. An important reference for Lefcourt’s landscapes was the recording of the first image of Mars by Nasa scientists in 1965. The initial planetary image was taken by a satellite and transmitted to Earth as a numerical sequence representing varying tonal intensities.

Kianja Strobert’s recent series of works presents the process, the raw material, the motivations and the goal simultaneously, devoid of any hierarchy. Strobert’s troughs filled with color are made with papier mâché covered by a painting evoking pewter, a metal primarily used for decorative metal items and tableware in ancient times. The work shares the context of other products of consumption,suggested by the repetition of utensils, objects and themes. Strobert’s works propose an attitude toward finish, in which the painter does not disguise the means of arriving at the final work.

John Miller’s Pedestrian paintings are derived from his photo series, The Middle of the Day – a project he began in 1994, in which he captures images between the hours of 12 and 2 pm. Here most individuals are unaware of the camera, generating an ambient or multi-directional attention, as opposed to the glorified self-image exhibited daily in social media. The groups Miller depicts resist idealization, in part because their interactions unfold indifferent to the aims of production and utility.

In the Pedestrian series, the transition goes from photography to painting, which accounts for the fracture between spontaneity and labour. Their shapes as cut out tableaux reinforce the aspect of realism. In conjunction with this, Miller deploys a particular grisaille technique in which he mixes a fair amount of grey into all the colours. By reducing the range of values ordinarily fo und in realist painting, this palette imposes a limit on the realist effect and puts the rendering involved at one remove.

John Miller (b.1954) had solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bielefeld (2021) and at Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin (2020). A survey exhibition was organized at the ICA Miami (2016) with an accompanying monograph. Miller is the recipient of the 2011 Wolfgang Hahn Prize, which coincided with a solo exhibition at Museum Ludwig, Cologne. In 2009 Kunsthalle Zürich held a retrospective exhibition of his work.


Scott Lyall’s series of modulated mirrors titled Talent are made of glass, printing ink, and a hand-mixed paint composition of varnish and gold nano-particles that reduce the mirror’s reflective quality. For Scott Lyall the use of gold introduces a surprising fugitivity: because of the intimate scale of nano-particles, a quantity of the gold is absorbed into the pores of Lyall's hands as he rubs it into the mirror's façade. It is as if the painted surface was divided on a scale between a world-reflecting image and an adventure of embodiment.

Cinzia Ruggeri’s personal and committed creative path began in 1960, when she had her first exhibition at Galleria del Prisma in Milan, accompanied by a text by Dino Buzzati. Ruggeri shared an affinity with the Radical Design scene in Milan in the seventies and was captivated by the transgression of limits between different disciplines like architecture, art, fashion and design. Cinzia Ruggeri's work is animated by a desire to transform everyday objects into unique, idyllic designs. With Tavolo Milos (2017), Ruggeri turns the shape of the island of Milos, her favorite destination in the Cyclades, into a table.

Reena Spaulings emerged in 2004 from the daily operation of Reena Spaulings Fine Art in New York, a gallery founded by John Kelsey & Emily Sundblad and named after Bernadette Corporation’s novel of the same name.
In order to introduce a different authority to the concept of authorship, Reena Spaulings has frequently adopted the practice of commissioning a third party or entity to execute their work. The Later Seascapes paintings were made with the help of a floor-mopping robot. Its spinning brush covers the surface of the canvas and leaves painted traces of every change of direction.

Eileen Quinlan explores the material boundaries of the photographic process by producing abstract images that are deeply grounded in feminist history, and the mechanics of presentation and consumption. Quinlan exposes the constructed nature of her medium by either mobilising commercial photography techniques or manually altering the surface of the negative.

Xylor Jane's explores vast textural and chromatic ranges, orchestrating intensely intricate paintings that reference numerical, time-based, and other patterned systems. Her personal writing systems measure different periods of her life, unpacking the artist’s fascination with time in a vast spectrum of colors. While generated with often esoteric mathematical prompts, they deliver powerful emotional experiences.

Blake Rayne's Cover Letter series oscillates between the pictorial and the sculptural, the rectangular historical shape of the canvas and a flexible alien form that derives from the decorative logic of graphic design, making the meaning of the letter “a” oscillate between applied and fine arts. The series focuses on the contradiction between the determination of painting and its irresolute nature.

Started in 1978, the Babel series evokes the image of a labyrinthic tower, growing vertically as division and movement reigns on the inside. Taking the canvas as a three-dimensional object, Bonnefoi sets a series of operations that aim to dismantle the unity of the plane. In his more recent paintings from the series, Bonnefoi explores further manipulations of the tarlatan, a sheer, open-weaved fabric applied in varying volumes, allowing the surface to reveal different levels of visibility.

The American/German artist Nick Mauss has formed his work through a finely tuned sensory register, with drawing at the centre of a praxis which otherwise eludes all simple categorizations. Expanding the medium of drawing through multiple registers at the same time, Mauss’ approach to drawing fuses peripatetically to other possible formats, including sculpture, publications, the format of the exhibition, and writing.

Amongst the most distinctive voices in contemporary painting, Amy Sillman paints and draws using innumerable layers, none of which the viewer sees in the final one, but which can be sensed from their active surface. Over the last three decades, she has interrogated the language and practice of painting, re-evaluating its history and extending its reach into emergent mechanical and digital processes.

Heike-Karin Föll's work examines the materiality and status of painting, drawing and writing in a culture increasingly dominated by the circulation of digital images. The quotation of pre-existing references, such as Martin Barre's works made with bomb-shaped spray cans in the mid-1960s (Total Femme, 2016) and the appropriation of specifically non-pictorial techniques, such as collage and writing, are at the core of her work.

Sarah Charlesworth is best known as an established figure of the Pictures Generation, as well as a prominent conceptual photographer of the 1970s and 1980s. Charlesworth’s influential body of work deconstructs the conventions of photography and establishes the medium’s centrality in our perception of the world. Charlesworth stages volatile worlds, isolating objects on monochrome backgrounds to reveal the constructed nature of visual culture and question systems of image distribution.

As an artist, writer, activist and curator, Fernanda Laguna created several cultural spaces that are until today an effective part of her practice. Laguna started showing her work in the post-dictatorial Argentina, where artists highly questioned the idea of artistic professionalism and taste by defending a recovered space of joy and desire. Cleverly weaving together craft, local painting traditions and popular culture, Laguna replaces the belief in the sleek and erudite work of art for an intuitive, empathic and more intimate approach to the role of the artist.

Emily Sundblad is an American-based, Swedish-born painter, gallerist, and musician. She co-founded and co-directs Reena Spaulings, an art collective and gallery located in Chinatown that exhibits one of the most consistent programs in New York. As an artist in her own right, Sundblad is known for her vibrant paintings—especially of flowers, which she describes as “a good empty subject.” Her approach is that of a Sunday painter—humble and modest, using oil, pastel, gouache, and watercolor in “a simple impulse to record everyday life.”

Nora Schultz's work explores questions of the emergence of pictures and production as an artistic dynamic. She is more interested in the genesis of images and objects and its material traces than in the completed work. The work below is a study for Lucia’s Four Roads, a single beam of blackened pine which appears like an outlier too, but of a dimensional kind. The diagonal reappears as a line that traverses both actual and virtual space, a line of thought whose length is determined by the proximity of ideas and the density of glass, wood, stone and paper.

Questioning the traditional hierarchies of painting, Jutta Koether’s work deconstructs the distinction between copy and original. Painting opens up a broader discursive space through the incorporation of performance and the appropriation of art historical subjects and positions.
