Little Anal Annie: Marc Jancou opens an exhibition of works by Steven Parrino
Installation view.

ROSSINIÈRE.- When Steven Parrino died unexpectedly in a motorcycle accident in 2005 at the age of 46, perhaps no country felt his loss more acutely than Switzerland. At the time of his death, Parrino had been working on an exhibition at MAMCO, Genève; in the preceding decades, Parrino’s work had been shown in Switzerland on more than a dozen occasions.

Organised by Greg Bergner and Marc Jancou at OFFSITE: CHALET in Rossinière, Switzerland, Marc Jancou Contemporary announces Little Anal Annie, an exhibition of works by this seminal American artist. Given Parrino’s close ties to Switzerland throughout his career, Bergner and Jancou felt it imperative to stage an exhibition in the country where the artist's work was most warmly received during his lifetime. On view from August 11th through September 15th, Little Anal Annie is a truly Swiss-made show in honor of Parrino’s cross-Atlantic collaborations with so many Swiss artists, musicians, writers, and curators.

Bringing together thirty-eight of Parrino's drawings, collages, and paintings, Little Anal Annie explores the artist’s interest in art history and theory, alongside his fascination with Pop iconography, subversive countercultures, the occult, and punk-rock music. A limited-edition catalogue to accompany the exhibition is forthcoming in Fall 2019.

Steven Parrino (1958-2005) was born in New York City. He received a BFA from Parson’s School of Design, New York, in 1982. His work has been shown at Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Kunstmuseum St. Gallen; Musée d’Art Modern et Contemporain, Genève; FriArt, Fribourg; Centre d’Art, Neuchâtel; Le Consortium, Dijon; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; The Swiss Institute, New York; FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon; The Power Station, Dallas; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo.

Little Anal Annie is open by appointment only. Please contact for viewings and/or further information.
