Featured Works on Exhibition A
Anne-Lise Coste was born near Marseille, France in 1973. She studied in Marseille and Zurich, before moving to New York, where she now lives and works. Her drawings and texts have the immediacy of graffiti, which she has described as “having faith in the first gesture”. This allows her to express subjective moods, political criticism, and literary references in a way that feels expansive. With a dada-influenced language and intensely lyrical images, her work exudes impulsiveness, rebellion, and emotion. Coste will be showing this year at Susanne Hilberry gallery, Ellen de Bruijne, Otto zoo gallery, and the Dallas Art Fair, in addition to releasing a new book, Où suis-je. She has shown at Eleven Rivington, Cooper Cole Gallery, White Columns, Museo de Bellas Artes de Santander, Anton Kern Gallery, and elsewhere. Coste was chosen as a critic’s pick in Artforum and Time Out New York and has made appearances in Flash Art, White Hot and Mousse Magazine, among others.
