A Whole Week­end Of Art

Where Berlin - - MUSEUMS & GALLERIES -

Spring is a time of trans­for­ma­tions in more ways than one. Ev­ery year, scores of the city’s best gal­leries come to­gether on the last week­end in April to open their new ex­hi­bi­tions in a city­wide ex­trav­a­ganza called Gallery Week­end (28–30 April). This year’s edi­tion in­cludes nearly 50 par­tic­i­pat­ing venues, each of which can be vis­ited for free on Fri­day, 28 April, from 6–9 pm, and from 11am–7pm on Satur­day and Sun­day. The best way to take part in the ac­tion is to fo­cus on one of the city’s art districts and then me­an­der from one ex­hi­bi­tion open­ing to the next on foot, fol­low­ing the crowds. Mitte’s ever-pop­u­lar gallery district be­tween Hack­escher Markt and Rosen­thaler Platz is a good place to start, in­clud­ing the ven­er­a­ble Sprüth Magers (Oranien­burger Str. 18, www. sprueth­magers.com), which will be open­ing a show by Lucy Dodd and Pamela Rosenkranz. Au­gust­straße and Linien­straße are filled with gal­leries, such as Ei­gen + Art (Au­gust­str. 26, www.ei­gen-art. com) and neuger­riem­schnei­der gallery (Linien­str. 155, www. neuger­riem­schnei­der.com). The equally high-cal­iber gallery district around Pots­damer Straße in the Tier­garten district in­cludes

Blain|South­ern (Pots­damer Str. 77-87, www.blain­south­ern.com) and the Tanya Leighton gallery (Kur­fürsten­str. 156, www.tanyaleighton.com), both very much worth a visit for all art afi­ciona­dos. www.gallery-week­end-ber­lin.de
