Munich/Berlin. From September 16 to 18 and in addition to its traditional event held in May, Gallery Weekend Berlin will present its first edition of Gallery Weekend *Discoveries in Berlin. As part of this new series of exhibitions, the majority of the 49 participating galleries will showcase their latest artistic discoveries. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, BMW Group Cultural Engagement supports this new format as partner as well and will again provide the VIP shuttle service for the galleries.
The first edition of Gallery Weekend *Discoveries will kick off a series of exhibitions in which the galleries will highlight their newest discoveries. Artists not previously shown in the respective gallery will be presented to a broad public for the first time. While some artists’ work will be featured in solo exhibitions, others will be shown as part of additional or group exhibitions.
On Friday, September 17 and Saturday, September 18 the participating galleries will be open to public and all citizens of Berlin and its guests are invited to visit them from 11.00 AM to 7.00 PM.
For further information about the participating galleries and the artists, please refer to the website www.gallery-weekend-berlin.de. In addition, the website will serve as an ongoing collection of journal entries on collectors, artists and critics over the course of the year and will give continuous insights into Berlin’s art scene.
Initiated by Berlin gallerists in 2005, the Gallery Weekend brings together different gallery exhibitions that are spread across the whole city. With its latest edition Gallery Weekend Berlin illustrates the co-operative nature and close collaboration of the city’s galleries now more than ever and strengthens Berlin’s position as an art destination. Gallery Weekend *Discoveries is an event developed and organized by the Gallery Weekend Berlin network and continues to anchor the date in September on the international arts calendar. Both events highlight the vital work of galleries as they champion and foster support for their artists, working alongside them to facilitate and conceive innovative and thought-provoking exhibitions. The weekend provides opportunities to discover new names or deepen existing passions.
Gallery Weekend *Discoveries will offer journalists the opportunity to visit galleries for a preview on Tuesday, September 14. The respective contact persons are available at the galleries and are looking forward to your visit from 10.00 AM to 3.00 PM.
In addition to the Gallery Weekend, BMW Group also supports the Preis der Nationalgalerie which will be awarded on October 7 this year. Furthermore, and in course of the digital partnership BMW OPERA NEXT, the company also cooperates with Staatsoper Unter den Linden and invites again to the long-standing open-air format ‘State Opera for all’ on September 18 and 19, 2021.
