MILLERNTOR GALLERY is a social art gallery in the Millerntor stadium of FC St Pauli and takes place at the Stadium of the football club FC St. Pauli (Millerntor Stadium) from May 23 to 26, 2013. All of its revenue is donated to the education and water projects of Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V. (VcA).

Jörg Heikhaus, founder of heliumcowboy, is the artistic director for MILLERNTOR GALLERY #03 and responsible for all artist and exhibition related activities and processes.

MILLERNTOR GALLERY is the perfect mix of FC St Pauli and Viva con Agua. The football club provides the unique stadium in the heart of the Sankt Pauli district. With the help of its colourful fan scene and culture, the club will turn the stadium into a beacon project for contemporary art and clean water worldwide.

With over 40,000 visitors per month, Millerntor stadium is the ideal platform to reach a broad public. The stadium space will be used by regional, national and international artists to exhibit their works, which will make the stadium one of the most-visited galleries in the world.

Next exhibition: PSYCHONOISEDESIRE, Nov 24

On November 24, starting at 8 p.m., we will open our last exhibition in 2012: PSYCHONOISEDESIRE presents new artwork by ADAMEVA, Jo Fischer and Alex Diamond.

For this show we will divide our space in three areas for solo-presentations of these artists, each going their very own individual way of presenting their latest work: 

Enter a very unique Psychobilly-Club, created by Jo Fischer as framework for his new photographic project about the european Psychobilly-scene ('PSYCHO'). Take a trip into the powerful, explosive, and pop-noisy world of Mary & Larissa, the artist duo known as ADAMEVA ('NOISE'). And be part of the sublime premiere of the newest  'Photo Drawings' by Alex Diamond in a very classy, reduced and elegant "white cube"-style gallery setting ('DESIRE').

More information and updates about this exhibition as we roll along, either here at heliumcowboy.com and/or on facebook / twitter.


Alex Diamond at the Art.Fair / BLOOM Cologne

The Art.Fair Cologne opened its doors last wednesday, and if you are in the area, we recommend you pay this fair a visit (we've just returned from the Vernissage yesterday and had a great time). It's the 10th time the Art.Fair takes place, and it has grown into one of the top art fairs in Germany for both contemporary and modern international art. Internationally renowned galleries and promising start-ups alike await visitors in the Cologne “Staatenhaus” at the fairgrounds. The fair is open Saturday 12 - 8 pm and Sunday 11 - 7 pm.

In 2006, the Art.Fair was the first fair heliumcowboy took part, before entering the international art fair circus only a few weeks later with our first (of many) representations at the big fairs in Miami, New York and Basel. And while we haven't returned to cologne, our friends from the gallery DIE KUNSTAGENTIN have been presenting their artists for quite a few years now at this event. This year, they are showing works by Alex Diamond at their large booth (BL-B04) situated in the section of BLOOM - a fair within the fair, showcasing younger galleries.

DIE KUNSTAGENTIN shows new magazine drawings and driftwood paintings by Alex Diamond alongside works by Bronco, Julia Benz and Oliver Abraham. A selection of the exhibited works can be found on the Alex Diamond-website. If you are interested in prices and availability, please contact Anne Scherer (hallo@diekunstagentin.de) or Anisa Gebhard (anisa@diekunstagentin.de)

Alex Diamond: Magazine Drawing #100

Alex Diamond Magazine Drawing #100 - the final magazine drawing that will be available through etsy.com

This is it. Magazine Drawing #100 by Alex Diamond has just been published. This will be the final Magazine Drawing that will be available through etsy.com, along with the remaining drawings on that site. At the end of the week, this shop on etsy will be closed, and the Magazine Drawings will return to the Galleries working with the artist. 

There's only a few Magazine Drawings left in the shop, make sure to check it our before the weekend:
Alex Diamond Magazine Drawings (link).

November will see the first new series of Magazine Drawings outside of the internet, at bloom / artfair21 in Cologne, where Alex Diamond will be represented by ,Die Kunstagentin‘.

When starting again with the magazine drawings in may this year after a 5-year break, we saw an outburst of the raw simplicity and directness in creating this part of Alex Diamond's work - the instinctive, rough drawings over magazine pages or photographs, which use just a tiny fraction of the tools and styles Alex Diamond has been applying in his work these past years, and probably in the simplest and purest form.

The response to this project was overwhelming. Selling exclusively at low prices through etsy.com (approx. 5 times below Alex Diamond‘s market standards), the Magazine Drawings went very fast from day one. This project, running completely outside of any gallery‘s reach (or jurisdiction ;), was planned to be capped once the 100th drawing was online, after which the Magazine Drawings will be sold at their standard value through galleries again.

However, there is already a new idea for an internet based art project in the tank, and that will most likely also happen on etsy (and in the real world) early next year, so stay tuned, either here or on alexdiamond.net!
