Evelyn Drewes | Gallery in Hamburg contemporary art with a focus on figurative painting. Initially, the gallery only worked with aspiring artists, but most artists are currently in the middle of their careers. The exhibition program thematizes and explores various technical and aesthetic concepts of painting beyond the currents of the art market. The collaboration of the gallery with art colleges enables young artists to be discovered and the resulting exhibitions. As part of the “lab” exhibition format , the gallery is bringing contemporary positions to Hamburg that are not constantly represented in the gallery program. In the "Meisterschüler" exhibitions, renowned professors in collaboration with the gallery show their own selection of former master students - most recently master students by Karin Kneffel (2016) and Leiko Ikemura (2017). The class exhibitions formathas tradition; once a year, the gallery leaves its entire premises to the students of a renowned art academy. From beginners to master students, the broad spectrum of each class is presented, freely and independently of the academy context. The class has the opportunity to curate the exhibition in collaboration with its professor and to realize their artistic visions. In recent years, successful exhibitions with the classes of Ayse Erkmen (Münster Art Academy), Ottmar Hörl (Nuremberg Art Academy), Stephan Balkenhol (Karlsruhe Art Academy), Katharina Fritsch (Düsseldorf Art Academy) and Annette Schröter (Leipzig Art Academy) have been shown. In 2018 we had students from Daniel Richter's class (Vienna Art Academy) as guests. In addition to the intensive development and support of a permanent artist base, national and international collaborations with art spaces, galleries, museums, curators and companies are always initiated. With exhibitions like "Made in Germany" in London (2012), "Young Positions" in Frankfurt / Offenbach (2013) or through projects, for example with the Private Banking of Sparkasse Karlsruhe (2013-2015), we see the possibility of our young artists to present to a larger audience. In 2015/16, an ambitious project - the operation of an open art space in Hamburg with a spacious exhibition area of ​​600 sqm - was realized together with partners: under the name "Gerson Höger Gallery", selected participants and the winners of the national competition were "students from “shown. In cooperation with the Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, an exhibition for the art prize "young west" was realized. Together with partners from Kassel, works by 43 artists from different generations of the renowned Fritz Schwegler class were brought to Hamburg. Established curators, experienced artists and well-known exhibition houses were available as committed partners.
