Discover. Love. Collect.
art KARLSRUHE 2017: advisory board has selected 210 galleries from 12 countries
Numerous one-artist shows, spacious sculpture areas and exclusive special exhibitions: with its hallmarks, art KARLSRUHE – International Fair for Classical Modern and Contemporary Art has been an ongoing success story. Under the slogan “Discover. Love. Collect.”, 210 galleries from 12 countries will be invited to present artworks at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre from 16 to 19 February 2017. In addition to these exhibitors, 19 sculpture areas will create spatial situations and invite visitors to tarry.
art KARLSRUHE’s advisory board will assign the limited number of booths at the trade fair to German and international galleries, which include well-known exhibitors from past art KARLSRUHE fairs, e.g. DIE GALERIE GmbH (Frankfurt am Main), Gilden’s Arts (London) and Victor Lope Arte Contemporaneo (Barcelona) as well as numerous newcomers such as Bernheimer Contemporary (Berlin), Tobias Naehring (Leipzig), island6 (Shanghai, China) and Galerie Springer (Berlin). The fair presents a broad spectrum of high-quality artworks in genres ranging from Classical Modern to Contemporary Art.
Hall 1 – Photography + Original Editions
The quality of the photography and original editions displayed at art KARLSRUHE increases with each passing year. One proof of this is the presence of experts such as Stephen Hoffman from Munich, who will again present prints by masters of photography in 2017. Further confirmation is embodied by Remy Bucciali from Colmar: Bucciali focuses on expressive contemporary artists whom this publisher invites to produce expressly for him. Alongside Galerie Springer (Berlin), EDITION STAECK from Heidelberg will be another new participant in Hall 1.
Hall 2 – Modern Classic + Contemporary Art
Visitors in Hall 2 can gaze from the past into the present. Traditional participants such as Heinz Holtmann from Cologne will present their exciting and high-quality portfolios. Whether it’s Reinhold Maas (Reutlingen), Barbara von Stechow (Frankfurt), Linde Hollinger (Ladenburg) or ambitious young gallerists such as Floss & Schultz (Cologne), Hall 2 provides ample space –and not solely for the ongoing exploration of nonfigurative art. A newcomer from Düsseldorf will be present in 2017: Michael Cosar (Cosar HMT), who will also show exciting artworks by Michael Klimas. Galerie Kronsbein from Munich will be another first-time participant in 2017.
Hall 3 – Classical Modern + Contemporary
The Maulberger (Munich/Sylt), Utermann (Dortmund), Thole Rotermund (Hamburg), Ludorff (Düsseldorf), and Henze & Ketterer (Wichtrach/Bern) galleries join many other dealers offering excellence and expertise in Classical Modernism, which ranks among the art market’s most exciting sectors. Associated with great names such as Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Liebermann and George Grosz, Classical Modern art will be amply and appropriately represented at art KARLSRUHE in 2017. Gallery Clairefontaine from Luxembourg will also be returning to art KARLSRUHE in 2017.
dm-Arena / Hall 4 - ContemporaryArt 21
The dm-Arena / Hall 4 is the venue where the most recent artistic creations will be presented. Galerie Smudajescheck (Ulm/Munich) returns to art KARLSRUHE in 2017: at the 13th art KARLSRUHE, this gallery successfully showed exciting artworks by Julius Dörner and Neringa Vasiliauskaite, whose creations this gallery will again display in 2017. Gallery Franzis Engels from Amsterdam, Holland will demonstrate its sensitivity to materials, for example, in the form of an enormous and fragile complex of artworks by Kees de Vries in which blossoms made of salt create unconventional lighting effects.
