Advisory Board Chose 210 Galleries from 15 Countries
Under the direction of curator Ewald Karl Schrade and the trade fair centre’s director Britta Wirtz, the seven-member Advisory Board selected the galleries which will participate in the upcoming art KARLSRUHE (13 to 16 February 2020).
Nationally and internationally renowned galleries are expected
A total of 210 nationally and internationally renowned galleries from 15 countries will present their programmes at the fair. The artworks on display span 120 years of artistic development – from the Classic Modern period to the present day.
From Classic Modern through Post-war to Contemporary art
Ever since art KARLSRUHE’s inception, Classic Modern art has been one focus of the fair’s programme, followed by Post-war art and Contemporary art. Artworks under these three headings are on display in Halls 2 and 3. Among the galleries with a strong focus on Classic Modern art are Cortina (Barcelona, E), Eggerbauer (Cologne, D), Gilden’s Art (London, GB), Luzán (Berlin, D), Dr. Michael Nöth (Ansbach, D), Thole Rotermund (Hamburg, D) and Malte Uekermann (Berlin, D). Galleries with portfolios that also continue into Contemporary art include Die Galerie (Frankfurt, D), Ludorff (Düsseldorf, D), Schwarzer (Düsseldorf, D) and the newly founded WOS Gallery (Pfäffikon, CH). Likewise premiering at art KARLSRUHE are the Braun-Falco (Munich, D), GADCollection (Paris, F), Hegau-Bodensee-Galerie (Singen, D), Proarta (Zurich, CH) and Galeria Roy (Felanitx, E) galleries. Especially in the field of Post-war art, which includes styles ranging from Art Informel to Zero, the Behning & Niehues Gallery (Sylt, D) appears for the first time alongside the well-established Georg Nothelfer Gallery (Berlin, D). Following their impressive appearances in 2019, the Berlin galleries König Gallery and Alexander Ochs Gallery return to art KARLSRUHE in 2020.
Hall 4/dm-arena at art KARLSRUHE is especially dedicated to the very newest artworks that have only just emerged from their creators’ studios. Among the galleries represented here are several which are already well known to the fair’s visitors, e.g. heissingart (Berlin/Lübeck, D), Klinger (Karlsruhe/Radeberg, D), Marek Kralewski (Freiburg im Breisgau, D), Christian Marx (Düsseldorf, D) and Meno Parkas (Kaunas, LT). New arrivals include Etienne Gallery (Oisterwijk, NL) and The View – Contemporary Art Space (Salenstein, CH). Tobias Schrade Gallery provides the three-dimensional artworks on display in the hall’s Sculpture Area.
Newcomers and returning exhibitors
The Advisory Board selected approximately 40 galleries that will take part in the fair for the first time, as well as others which were not at fair for one or more years and are now returning. The new exhibitors, which are distributed among all four halls, come from six countries: Germany, France, Italy, Holland, Switzerland and Spain.
