Art Düsseldorf

This weekend marks the premier of a new large art fair in Düsseldorf, Germany. Open November 16th - 19th and in its first year, Art Düsseldorf seeks to establish itself as “a new and innovative platform for collectors, gallerists and curators.” Over 75 galleries will have spaces in a recently converted former factory complex called  Areal Böhler. Sixty percent of the galleries present are German, and the fair designated specific spaces for young galleries. These are balanced out by the presence of major international galleries, including David Zwirner, Cristina Guerra Contemporary Art, Marlborough Contemporary.

Two galleries will feature prominent works created before 1945: Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art (Vienna) and Michael Werner Kunsthandel (Cologne, Märkisch Wilmersdorf, New York). These works are meant to serve as  “References,” give context to the contemporary works on display.
