Opening on May 4th 2013
May 4th - June 1st 2013
Tuesday - Saturday 12 - 6pm
Berlin–Klondyke presents work from over 100 artists, many are internationally known, a few of them even famous, many just at the start of their careers.
Berlin–Klondyke mixes many styles, from wild brushstrokes to delicately classical painting, Drawing and Collage, Sculpture and Installation, into a confrontational and at times provocative exhibition, which is a unique example of the creative adventure experienced in current-day Berlin.
Berlin–Klondyke is curated by Irmelin and Reinald Nohal. She is a former opera singer, actress and translator from a norwegian-danish family. He is viennese, was for decades the owner of the famous „Paris Bar“ in Berlin, and planed and built Martin Kippenberger's „World-Wide Metro-Net“ on the greek island of Syros and in Dawson City. There in the 1990s, Nohal built his Bunkhouse Hotel, which has since hosted and given home to many Artists in Residence during the summer months.
The first location of Berlin-Klondyke was at the Odd Gallery in Dawson City in Summer 2011, which featured works from previous Artists in Residence, as well as a selection of artistic positions from Berlin. From December 2011 to May 2012, the expanded exhibition was shown at Art Center Los Angeles. In Germany, the exhibition was on view at Kunstverein Pfaffenhofen from September to October 2012, where the show expanded to include Sculpture and Installation.
On May 4, 2013, Berlin-Klondyke opens its doors in the Leipzig WERKSCHAU during the Spinnerei Gallery Weekend, and will be on view until June 1.
In August 2013, Berlin-Klondyke will continue on to Austria, where the exhibition will open during the Salzkammergut Festival on August 23 at the Hipp-Hall in Gmunden and will run until the end of September.
