Coming Up: Künstler der Galerie und ihre Sparring-Partner

Künstler der Galerie und ihre Sparring-Partner opens on Friday November 7th at the Jedlitschka Gallery in Zürich and is my first exhbition since becoming part of the stable.

The idea behind this group show was simple: each member of the gallery was asked (for whatever reason) to nominate a sparring-partner and invite this artist to exhibit at close quarters on the walls of the gallery.

We have 20 Artists, from 9 countries.
I expect a good, clean fight. 
In the event of a knock-down, you will be directed to go to a neutral corner. 
Are there any questions?..
Protect yourself at all times!
Okay, touch gloves and come out at the bell! 

Freitag. 7. November 17-20 Uhr
Einführung & Ansprache:
Mit Dr. Mark Staff Brandl / Künstler, Kunsthistoriker
Donnerstag20. November 19.00 Uhr, Mäddel Fuchs / Hag um Hag ein Requiem

In the next post... Introducing, Anna Steele (and I'll have dropped the lame boxing references).

Art International Zürich 2014.

The quality was a little more erratic at this year's installment of Art International Zürich - Contemporary Art Fair. It also seemed decidedly less 'International' and appeared to have fewer Galleries participating and more booths occupied by Individual Artists (not necessarily a bad thing).
That being said, there was still some good stuff and it started me looking forward to KUNST 14 in a couple of weeks and the rumour of a 3rd Fair coming to Zürich next year.
