Right in the middle of the Wynwood Art District and catty-cornered from Scope Miami at the corner of 21st Street, Gallery Schuster from Berlin has opened a temporary gallery location during Miamiâ€™s winter art fair season to show three exhibitions with promising positions from Germany’s hottest art place.
After six successful years of participation in Miamiâ€™s art fairs, Gallery Schuster considered 2009 just the right timing to renew their commitment to this location and bring real exhibitions into a real gallery.
With their two galleries Schuster and Schuster Photo they have been an integral and constituting factor in the contemporary art scene of reunified Germany. This is underpinned by more than 200 exhibitions and over 50 participations in various art fairs around the globe. An intense network and cooperation with major museums and prominent collectors ensures a global footprint and regular interaction with the trend-setting leaders in the contemporary art scene.
According to New York Times, art quartier Heidestrasse in Berlin, right beside Berlinâ€™s museum for contemporary art, Hamburger Bahnhof, ranks high under the worldâ€™s leading art spots. This is where the two Schuster galleries are located, in direct neighborhood to Arndt & Partner, Haunch of Venison or Hamish Morrison.
Gallery Schuster started their Miami presence on November 14th with a solo show from Berlin based painter Jens Hausmann that has already received a very positive recognition amongst the local art community.
In parallel to the Miami art fairs, Gallery Schuster will present â€œNEXTBERLINGENERATIONâ€, an inspiring group show of young and upcoming artists from Germanyâ€™s art capital. This show will present a mix of all media, including sculptures, objects, installations, photography, video and also painting. Contributing artists will be Benjamin Dewor, Xenia Fink, Julia Freisleben, Gerit Koglin, Marcel KrÃ¶ner, Juliane Eirich, Lina Faller, Andreas Geisselhardt, Karen Irmer, Jangyoung Jung, Florian Langmaack, Oliver Pietsch, Marek Schovanek and Kestutis Svirnelis.
This show will be accessible from Monday, November 30th until December 19th with an official opening reception on Thursday, December 3rd from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m.
