GAGPROJECTS moves to Berlin

GAGPROJECTS temporarily closes Adelaide space as it establishes new gallery in Germany.

Words: Emma Pham

Adelaide-born GAGPROJECTS is embarking on a new creative trajectory, with new digs at a former Flak hanger site in Berlin, Germany.

GAGPROJECTS director Paul Greenaway will suspend the exhibition program in the Adelaide space for the next 12 months while the new gallery is under construction. During this time, GAG’s home office in Adelaide will remain open to assist collectors wishing to view works or learn more about artists. The gallery will also continue as normal to execute art valuations and act as agent and advisors for their artists.

Berlin has become crucial base for GAGPROJECTS’ European network in the past decade, with the gallery undertaking various projects in the art epicentre since 2008. This has led to the foundation of an artist-in-residency building in 2015, which supports international artists wanting to experience the cultural freedom of the city. The new gallery space is the next chapter in the story.

Back in Adelaide, the gallery presents stable artists Angela and Hossein Valamanesh for the Adelaide Festival 2020, and the outstanding participation of Pierre Mukeba in the Adelaide Biennial.
