The first Okey Dokey local + international gallery share runs in Cologne and Düsseldorf, Sep 8 – 30

8 September 2017

The Okey Dokey joint exhibition project of galleries and spaces is on in Cologne and Düsseldorf, opening September 8 and running to September 30.

Similar to the CONDO collaborative project (founded in London in 2016 by Vanessa Carlos of Carlos/Ishikawa and debuting in New York this year) which sees spaces host artists from an international counterpart, the citywide event presents collectively-curated group shows developed in cooperation with their guests.

This German iteration is organised by emerging spaces Jan Kaps, Ginerva Gambino and Max Mayer, with the aim of encouraging supportive relationships between local and international galleries, and includes Berlin’s Sandy Brown, Geneva’s Truth and Consequences, and London’s Arcadia Missa; Basel’s Weiss Falk, Los Angeles’ Park View, and Mexico City’s Lulu; Neue Alte Brücke, Galerie 1900-2000 and more. 

See the Okey Dokey website for the full program.**

Some picks for the London-wide CONDO collaborative exhibition, Jan 14 – Feb 11

13 January 2017

The second CONDO “collaborative exhibition” is on across venues in London, opening with previews the weekend of January 14 and 15, and running to February 11. 

Featuring 36 galleries (to last year’s already impressive 32), the annual initiative — starting in 2016 and led by Carlos/Ishikawa’s director Vanessa Carlos — aims to highlight the need for mutual support in order to survive and succeed in the contemporary art ecosystem. In doing so, several London spaces will host solo presentations by international galleries.

The list runs with a number of emerging, independent and institutional names, so here’s list of artist and exhibition recommendations from us in the meantime:

– Jan Kiefer at Union Pacific 

Galerie Gregor Steiger with Shana Moulton, hosted by Emalin 

– Bridget Donahue with Martine Syms, hosted by Sadie Coles

Neue Alte Brücke with Eric Schmid, hosted by Vilma Gold  

Than Hussein Clark with VI, VII, hosted by Arcadia Missa

Seventeen NYC + Stereo, hosted by The Sunday Painter

Kris Lemsalu with Koppe Astner, hosted by Southard Reid

Yuri Pattison with Mother’s Tankstation + Lulou Margarine with Queer Thoughts, hosted by Project Native Informant

See the CONDO website for details.**
