Celebrating half a century of contribution to and appreciation of the art world, the Konrad Fischer Galerie presents ’50 Years of Konrad Fischer Galerie 1967 – 2017’. Presenting key works and revisiting major exhibitions from the gallery’s history and collection, the Düsseldorf gallery will be running this celebratory display until mid November.
The exhibition titled ‘50 Years of Konrad Fischer Galerie 1967 – 2017’ celebrates the gallery’s 50-year anniversary in the art industry. Through this tenure, the gallery has displayed works of many artists including Tony Cragg, Harald Klingelhöller, Rita McBride, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Schütte, and Jerry Zeniuk, along with a second and third generation of new artists including Guy Ben-Ner, Peter Buggenhout, Aleana Egan, Jim Lambie, Manfred Pernice, Magnus Plessen, Wolfgang Plöger, Gregor Schneider, and Paloma Varga Weisz. Run by Berta Fischer, the gallery displays some of its old and recent works through this exhibit.
Konrad Dorothee Fischer Gallery was first established in October 1967. It inaugurated in a tiny exhibition space in a disused alley in the center of Dusseldorf with an exhibition of works by Carl Andre, when minimal and conceptual art were virtually unknown in Europe. Artists like Richard Long, Bruce Nauman, Sol LeWitt, On Kawara, Lawrence Weiner, Hanne Darboven, and Robert Ryman had their first European solo exhibitions at ‘Ausstellungen bei Konrad Fischer’ and their work has been exhibited by the gallery ever since. Over the years the gallery has supported artists with new conceptual approaches in painting as well as exhibiting photography in presentations of work by Robert Mangold, Alan Charlton, Bernd and Hilla Becher.
The exhibition is on view through November 14, 2017 at Konrad Fischer Galerie, 40233 Düsseldorf Platanenstrasse 7.
