10 YEARS OF GALLERY WEEKEND BERLIN
Gallery Weekend is coming on!
The Gallery weekend is about to start in Berlin. It’s celebrating 10 years of existence and continues being responsible for providing a cultural atmosphere to the city.
Here are some suggestions so that you can make the most of it!
-Renowned Sprüth Magers with galleries in Berlin and London has the pleasure to open the 10th Gallery Weekend Berlin, today – April 30th, a talk and discussion between photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia and the cultural critic and writer Ulf Erdmann Ziegler will take place at the American Academy. It will certainly bring a new insight to the upcoming exhibition “Hustlers” by Philip-Lorca, at Sprüth Magers, opening on May 2nd. Just to give you a little hint, the artist has made some trips through Los Angeles and made a photographic work with some male prostitutes where the artistic exchange “Nothing for Nothing” is achieved.
-Don’t miss the Gordon Matta-Clark exhibition at Gallery Thomas Schulte. “Films” is a collection of videos made by this important figure of the 70′s art scene, where he both documents his interventions in urban spaces and makes of these videos an artwork itself. Some collaborations with other artists, dancers and friends and a constant look over architecture. Opening May 2nd.
-For those interested in Julian Opie visual language, you can check his work in an exhibition at Gerhardsen Gerner Gallery. Its opening is organized on purpose for the Gallery Weekend and will present some digital animations of the famous British artist, showing his interest on studying the movement. Opening May 2nd.
-KEWENIG opened its Berlin dependance on September 2013, maintaing also a gallery in Palma de Mallorca. Directed towards contemporary art from the 1960′s until now, this gallery offers a unique restored space, in Berlin’s second oldest citizen house on the Museumsinsel. Following the program of the organized weekend, KEWENIG will open the Bertrand Lavier’ s exhibition “Medley” on May 2nd.
-Michael Fuchs Galerie, presenting CREATION (Megaplex), a solo exhibition featuring two video installations by Marco Brambilla, opening on May 2nd. Drawing from an array of pop cultural sources in order to re-contextualize century old histories, Brambilla’s films continue to challenge the standards of both art and film. The third in a trilogy of 3D videos that started with Civilization (Megaplex), 2008, and Evolution (Megaplex), 2010, Creation (Megaplex) presents a spectacular cinematic composition that culls from a vast archive of iconic Hollywood films.
-You totally shouldn’t miss the opportunity to see the Sammlung Boros on their special Open House during the 3rd and 4th of May. It is an old bunker adapted to show a private contemporary art collection, but with evident traces of its functions on the past. An original combination, one might say, that can only usually be reached by booking guided tours.
-Also you should take advantage and go to the opening of “Stanze/Rooms” on May 1st. Me Collectors Room shelters a presentation of the the Turin-based Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Collection dealing with the topic “rooms”. The collector Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo will be present on Saturday, May 3rd. Me Collectors Room is a space accustomed to show international private collections and it is located just in the middle of the artistic world of Auguststrasse.
