BC Gallery (Berlin)

BC Gallery was founded in April 2013 by Nick Bargezi, a sound designer and art collector from Basel Switzerland and is managed by Phillipp Barth. The Berlin based gallery has since established itself in the high-end urban and contemporary art market, featuring regular solo and group exhibitions by internationally renowned and upcoming contemporary artists.

The gallery‘s main goal is to provide artists and collectors alike with a reliable and sustainable platform. An important part of maintaining success and sustainability as a  gallery is having a team which constantly and with passion researches and develops within the rapidly changing art market. It is our goal to provide artists with the support they need to produce their work, consult with our clients with professional and thoroughly researched market development advice and to utilize every possibility into bringing the gallery to the next level.

Another important part to sustainability is financial stability. Not only for the gallery but for the artists as well. On a primary market level this means working closely with the artists for the shows to ensure best quality in works, especially on a long term level. This in turn means that the gallery is able to provide its clients with market stable and exclusive artworks. On a secondary market level research, awareness, inventory and contacts are key to having access to important works before they go public. This goes for auctions, art fairs and private sales.

Institutional projects are yet another big part of having a long term presence on the art market as a gallery. The intellectual, political and cultural importance of the arts in our society are undeniable and have been with us from the beginning of mankind. Helping to maintain and support these aspects of the art world, which are the gateway for the broad public to being part of it, is a long term goal of the gallery. Last but not least it is integrity and credibility which are above all else the most important aspects to having good long term relationships with both artists and clients. Without them a gallery cannot hold up in the professional art world. This is achieved by having constant transparency and open communication on all sides.

Thereby we create synergies and a close link between artists and the city itself.

The roots of Delimbo directors, Laura Calvarro & Seleka lies in graffiti and
contemporary art, and that’s why delimbo have a different program and artist selection, placing Delimbo as one of the main international street and contemporary art galleries.

Le Container (Marseille)

Le Container gallery is a new concept: an art gallery which exhibits in maritime containers and travels France and abroad!

Inside, the containers are transformed into a pop-up gallery where urban and contemporary artworks are exhibited. Outside, the container walls are covered during each exhibition with graffiti, tags, papers, stencils… from exhibited artists. The gallery becomes a giant work of art and of architecture placed in city centres.

This is the way Déborah and Clément see their mission as gallery owners: to create encounters between artists and the public, to organize fun art exhibitions and with a great impact and visibility, to reinvent the meaning of an art gallery

Participating in art fairs is part of this nomadic and interactive approach.

Pretty Portal (Düsseldorf)

The gallery Pretty Portal was founded in 2007 and is focussing on urban contemporary art. Owner and curator Klaus Rosskothen presents a mixture of established artists and emerging, fresh talents.

Pretty Portal works with international artists like BTOY, Chazme, Claudio Ethos, FinDAC, ETNIK, Guy Denning, JANA&JS, L.E.T., Peeta, Pixelpancho, Natalia Rak, SAM3 and Wolfgang Krell.

Urban Art combines classical art forms with pop, punk, graffiti and street art, while reflecting the thoughts and moods of today, which are most likely perceived in the major metropolitan areas, the melting pots of our society. The already well-known mash-up, the interweaving of known and unknown, citation, deconstructing and re-crosslinking is sensed and used by urban artists in the visual arts. Urban Art has become an art form in the field of contemporary art.

The Gallery Pretty Portal presents and documents a fast-moving, radical new art direction.

Gallery owner and curator Klaus Rosskothen sees Pretty Portal as a fusion of street and White Cube, a metalevel where Urban Art meets gallery visitors and collectors. Pretty Portal shows paintings, drawings, prints, collages, photographies, video installations and sculptures.

Truck Art Project is an original art patronage project launched by the entrepreneur and collector Jaime Colsa, and curated by Fer Francés in contemporary art and by Ink and Movement in urban art.

A project aimed at putting together a particular collection of Spanish contemporary art, without any owner, in which the trucks will be the gigantic backdrops for the artworks.

The result is a collection of mobile art that challenges the artist to face scales and requirements that he or she has probably not dealt with before and that transform us into involuntary and fleeting spectators of the works of art.

Manifesto

URVANITY ART

The new Contemporary Art Fair

It is manifest that for several decades new practices, values and codes have coexisted in the cultural landscape of our cities, occupying a place in the world of contemporary art. The issue is how to tie them together, and this cannot be achieved only by means of an urban art fair. Therefore, Urvanity has been conceived as a platform for a New Contemporary Art.

To speak of new art is to catalyze a contemporary project with a historical perspective because “all that is not tradition is plagiarism.” Notably, Urvanity advocates proposals (with a strong base in the urban context of the 1970 ́s up until today) that construct a dialogue with modernity, and, as a result, provide a setting from which we can explain the world around us. It is important not only to consider the work itself but to understand the public space where this very work is composed and that it at the least convey an aesthetic experience.

Urvanity seeks to explore and thus imagine possible future scenarios for this New Contemporary Art, thanks in part to alliances with other initiatives and promoters of culture in our city. To support the creation and spreading of ideas, as well as facilitate access to these practices of contemporary creation that define our vast cultural urban landscape.
