At the art fair with Jo Fischer: a documentation by the man himself

Photo by Jo Fischer. Click image to view the whole album.

Photographer Jo Fischer, who will open his first solo-exhibition at our gallery in Hamburg this Friday, Oct 22 from 8 - 11 p.m. (more info here), joined our team for the whole duration of the PREVIEW art fair in Berlin last week.

Jo was supporting us hands-on 5 long days, from setting up the booth on Wednesday until the dismantling of the fair Sunday night. And at the same time he documented our good times in Berlin with his camera.

This is what really happened (follow this link for a selection of the photos he took).


PREVIEW Berlin: The images

The fairs in Berlin are over, and we had a great time at PREVIEW, taking place at the historic Tempelhof Airport. Represented artists at our booth this year were Jeremy Fish, Jo Fischer, Alex Diamond, Boris Hoppek, Nina Braun and Victor Castillo. 

We've uploaded some photos taken during the art fair to our Digilog here at the site - check this link to see them all.

Uploaded the images from the Preview Dinner (and from setting up the show, and the process of cooking for it at the gallery kitchen) we hosted September 1st for the opening of the Group Show "Mountain To Surf", featuring works by Nina Braun, Jon Burgerman, Victor Castillo, Alex Diamond, Boris Hoppek, Jeremy Fish & Casey McKee.

The menue.

And yes, before you ask:  

* this place is run by a cowboy who can cook, so no catering service was involved;
* all food was prepared on location at the new gallery kitchen, that's one of the reason's why the space doesn't resemble a white cube and why we do call it the Ranch;
* and everyone got out alive, well fed and healthy.


There was no time yet to take decent pictures from the installation of the artworks, this will follow later this week. You may, however, check out the artwork overview:


Now open: Mountain To Surf - Group Show


We are pleased to present the 2010 Season Opening Exhibition showcasing 7 artists from our gallery. The exhibition will feature painting, photography, drawing, wood cuts and sculpture, with works by:

Nina Braun, Jon Burgerman, Victor Castillo, Alex Diamond, Boris Hoppek, Jeremy Fish & Casey McKee.

Friday, Sep 3 - Friday, Sep 17, 2010

open tuesdays - fridays, 12 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Most of the works shown at "Mountain To Surf" have never been exhibited in Hamburg before. These works have been presented at fairs and exhibitions in Basel (Mountains), New York (somewhere in between = To), Barcelona/Miami (Surf) ... you get the idea.

Mountain To Surf is also the name of a small annual run I've participated in Lorne, Australia ages ago, that begins in the mountains (hills...) above the coast, continues on forest tracks through the bushland (woods) and ends on the beach, almost in the surf (it really does - after the finishing line you are basically standing right inside the breaking waves).

Our long-time companion Stephen Smith, also known as Neasden Control Centre, opens his large solo-show "More with less" at the MU in Eindhoven on August 20. All information about this exhibition can be found at his website or over at No New Enemies (who'll also most likely post a follow up after the opening).

Wish we could be there, Steve. Best of luck, and I am sure it's going to be massive.
