heliumTALK #06: Ralf Krüger

On Friday, July 14 - the evening before the opening of our anniversary  exhibition COWBOYLAND - we host another edition of heliumTALK, the art talk TV show of Jannes Vahl from Clubkinder e.V. and Jörg Heikhaus.

Our guest: Ralf Krüger from the gallery Feinkunst Krüger in Hamburg.

Ralf has been even longer in the business than Jörg - he opened his gallery 19 years ago. Together they will review almost 2 decades of gallery life in Hamburg. Needless to say that Ralf and Jörg have always shared a common goal - support the art and the artists and make great exhibitions for Hamburg and beyond. And despite being in the same shark tank, they have been close friends for almost 15 years now and have a lot of stories to tell.

The show will be recorded for television by TIDE TV. Doors open at 6 pm, the talk starts at 7 pm. It will take place inside the exhibition at the gallery.

The talk takes place at the heliumcowboy gallery Wednesday, March 1st, 6–9 PM (Talk begins at 7).
More event information can be found on Facebook.
