We are very much looking forward to our new collaboration this year with the galerie weisser elefant in Berlin-Mitte. For over thirty years, galerie weisser elefant has offered young, emerging artists a platform in the city’s most important gallery district, free of any commercial pressures. The series takes place over two dates and features Italian artist, musician and composer Luciano Chessa, Argentinian bass clarinettist and composer Lucio Capece, Australian cellist Judith Hamann and Australian sound artist Lottie Sebes. Free entry!
The public gallery organises site-specific solo exhibitions as well as thematic group exhibitions. In recent years, this old brick building in the heart of Berlin has exhibited spacious installations, photography and painting.
This year, the gallery is exploring how the accessibility and social sustainability of exhibition spaces can be enhanced, and how, through collective experience, interdisciplinary collaborations can contribute to such efforts. The association with Digital in Berlin is thus an attempt to forge diverse and constructive collaborations, across disciplines, throughout neighbourhoods to ensure that art and culture in the city, and beyond, maintain their vigour, their appeal, and their function.
In recent years Digital in Berlin has worked together with art institutions across the city and wider region — from Kunsthaus Dahlem and the Brücke-Museum, to the Bärenzwinger at Köllnischen Park and Galerie Bernau in Brandenburg — to form lasting and fruitful partnerships, bringing together music, culture and the arts. We are looking forward to continuing in this mission with galerie weisser elefant. The collaboration forms part of the two-part exhibition.
The first part of the exhibition begins with the re:gen_urban recovery space project, which engages ideas and themes around urban regeneration.
Later, John Reardon and Valentina Karga explore the relationship between art and the public sphere, with engagement and participation particularly important to their projects. It is hoped that with this project, and others in the future, the gallery can act as a platform for diverse artistic processes and collaborations, new relationships, partnerships and connections within this expanding community.
