It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Alain KIRILI on May 19, 2021 in New York, at the age of 74. Born in 1946 Alain KIRILI is known for his sculptures in wrought iron, but also in plaster. Classified as Post-Minimalist, he freed himself from it and highlighted sensuality, spontaneity and improvisation with more complex aesthetics. Together with Ariane, he contributed a lot to sharing his passion for free jazz by organizing regular concerts in his loft in Tribeca. Ron GORCHOV and Alain KIRILI offered a beautiful exhibition at Galerie Richard, Paris, from October 19 to December 30, 2009 entitled “Celebration of the hand: the art of Ron Gorchov and Alain Kirili”.
