ART COLOGNE, which was established in 1967, is considered one of the world’s oldest art fairs. The fair’s 56th edition will see around 170 international galleries descend upon the German city, with more than 1000 featured artworks to be viewable online. While this year is notable for its large selection of Austrian galleries, it will also see Australian gallery Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery from Sydney participating for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic.
Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery will be exhibiting new works by artists Daniel Boyd, Dale Frank, Bill Henson, Isaac Julien, Jim Lambie, David Noonan, Tom Polo and Kaylene Whiskey.
“We are very pleased that several important international galleries are returning after several long years and many new and first-time galleries have been accepted for this year”, says Artistic Head and Director of ART COLOGNE Daniel Hug, “We are especially pleased at the participation of Andersen’s from Copenhagen, Meyer Kainer from Vienna, Roslyn Oxley9 from Sydney and Peter Kilchmann from Zurich and Paris”.
The fair will feature several sections with NEUMARKT presenting impressive young galleries, separate areas for Modern and Post-War art, and ART + OBJECT highlighting works that intersect art and design.
Special exhibitions will also run as part of the fair, including past is present is past, a collection presentation that unveils the LBBW Collection’s newest acquisitions. This year’s ZADIK exhibition will provide an illuminating survey of Barbara Gross’ work within the art market as both a gallerist and a proponent for women in art.
ART COLOGNE will run until Sunday 19 November, with Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery to be found at Booth A-199. To see a wide selection of exhibited works, visit their online catalogue here.
