Grand reopening & Jeremy Fish: the posters are here.

click image to enlargeAs the grand reopening and the vernissage of Jeremy Fish's "The road less traveled", our first exhibition at the new space, is moving closer, we are getting more and more excited every day. Especially as there are still so many obstacles in the way that we have to resolve until then. Well. Anyone who has ever built his own house knows what I am talking about ... okay, so replace "excited" with "nervous". 

Anyway. We WILL open Jeremy's show on May 29, no matter what. So leave the worries to us and enjoy the poster for the show that just arrived from the printers and will be up in the city shortly before the opening date. Leftovers will be available for free at the opening.

Back from Tokio and his exhibition "Ever" at the Diesel Denim Gallery, Boris shared some photos with us on his website. Click this link to see them all. 


Cowboys from outer space.

Well. More like "outer space, version 1974". And truly just a tinfoil-impression from the construction site of our new ranch. Full progress report on the building of our new gallery space, to open May 29 with Jeremy Fish and his exhibition "The road less traveled": continue reading here (includes new pictures).


"Urban Superstars" in Naples

While most likely police cars will be burning in Hamburg and Berlin tomorrow, Naples sees the opening of a very special exhibition at Museum MADRE: "Urban Superstars", an exhibition covering the fields of "Urban Art, Pop Surrealism, LowBrow, Underground Art and international young Contemporary Art" (quote from their website). 

The show, curated by David Vecchiato, runs until December 12 and boasts an impressive line-up of influential artists from all across the world. Amongst the 40 artists you'll find the "heliumcowboy superstars" Boris Hoppek, Jim Avignon, Jon Burgerman, Victor Castillo and Jeremy Fish. And your most favourite Doodle-Popstars, ANXIETEAM, will perform live on May 2nd.

Boris Hoppek: Art & Interviews in Japan

Today Boris Hoppek opens "Ever", his first solo-exhibition in Tokio at the Diesel Denim Gallery Aoyama. He is also giving out a lot of information to the media, which, if you know Boris, is not always a matter of course...  

Here's a nice interview with Shift magazine about the show. There will be an article in Pen Magazine shortly, but all we could get our hands on so far is this photo (below) Boris took from this man under the bed at the gallery, who apparently is the Pen-photographer taking a photo of Boris who is taking a photo of the photographer ... well, you get the idea.


For more reading material on Boris you may also move over to the new No New Enemies-website, where they've just published my text from small-things.eu about him: In Bed with Boris


Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch.


You'd think it's much bigger. The dinner table. The one that Jo Fischer carries around with him, taking photos of 1000 people sitting at it. Two lovers with a bottle of red and tiny plates fit around it. It's really that small.

Roughly three years ago, Jo Fischer picked up a camera and started to work as a professional photographer. The story behind his decision to get his first camera is a story of its own, one that I am sure will be told many times very soon, because Jo is bound to be one of the most talked about young photo artists coming from Germany.

Casey McKee: exhibition in Frankfurt

Casey McKee will open his solo exhibition "Mistakes Were Made" at Galerie Greulich in Frankfurt this Friday. We had a chance to take a peek at the brand new works he will be showing, and there's just one word: amazing. The exhibition does not have a single theme and is not one coherent series as with most of Casey's shows in the past, but consists of various works based on individual subjects. 

If I were in Frankfurt, you'd definitely find me at Galerie Greulich's space on Fahrgasse 22 from 7 pm on Friday, April 16!

For more information on Casey, check our artist info or his website.
