Art Cologne 2016, Apr 13 – 17

13 April 2016

Art Cologne is on again, this year celebrating its 50th anniversary and running in the German city April 13 and 17.

Last year mid-April was extremely busy so we wrote this, and picked out a couple of names like Katja Novitskova, Daniel Keller and Slavs and Tatars who contributed to the overall line up of the oldest art fair in the world.

This year sees a number of gallerists pairing up to present artists, like DREI and Proyectos Monclova who are collaborating in their presentation of artists Hayley Aviva Silverman, Anna Virnich and collective, Tercerunquinto, and Natalia Hug Gallery with LA’s Mier space who are presenting Jana Schroeder.

Maximilian Arnold, Christopher Füllemann and Leonhard Hurzlmeier will present with Berlin’s DUVE while Georgia-based Andro Wekua‘s show Anruf, opens at Kölnischen Kunstverein during the weekend of Art Cologne and continues until June 19.

See the Art Cologne website for the extensive list of around 200 international galleries.**

copy g_ods @ DREI, Nov 12 – Jan 9

10 November 2015

The copy g_ods group exhibition is on at Cologne’s DREI, opening November 12 and running to January 9, 2015.

Featuring Julia Scher, Melike Kara and Yves Scherer, there’s little information on the themes of the exhibition itself but for the previous work of the artists within it.

An LA-born installation and performance artist working with the early web, Scher’s practice often concerns themes of surveillance culture in online works such as Securityland and Wonderland. Kara is a Cologne-based artist working with sculpture and painting in examining dissolution through not necessarily defined but still somehow familiar content, while Berlin-based Scherer’s recent exhibition Where is the love at Paris’ EXO saw the artist look at the possibilities of resistance through re-appropriation.

See the Drei website for (limited) details.**
