On the occasion of its own 25th anniversary in the Hallenbau, one of the largest industrial monuments in Germany, the Städtische Galerie Karlsruhe opens its atrium for the 25th Karlsruhe Artists’ Fair. In addition to traditional media such as painting, sculpture and drawing, the fair also presents works by interdisciplinary and media artists from the fields of video and installation.
After the first weekend from July 23 to 24, when the participating artists will be present, the exhibition can be visited until September 25. In contrast to conventional art fairs, it is not galleries but the artists who present themselves and their works. Thus, this show offers a special platform for the exchange of artists, art lovers and buyers. Together with the simultaneous exhibitions of three young artists trained at the Karlsruhe Art Academy – Laura Gaiser, Ulrich Okujeni and Johanna Wagner – this year’s fair will turn the Städtische Galerie into a multifaceted showcase of contemporary art production in the city and the region.
The selection of the 32 participants, who represent the most diverse currents of contemporary art in the area of Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Alsace, was made by a jury of experts from more than 130 applications. On display is a diverse spectrum of painting, sculpture, drawing, graphics, object art, photography, video, installation and the combination of different forms of artistic expression.
