Seven participants of Gallery Weekend Berlin – namely alexander levy, BQ, ChertLüdde, Klemm’s, Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler, Plan B and PSM – will open the joint exhibition “K60” in the Wilhelm Hallen at Kopenhagener Strasse 60 in Reinickendorf. This listed building of a former iron foundry offers 3000 square meters of space, dedicated to works of art and installations that far exceeds the traditional gallery space. The exhibition invites 23 artists represented by the participating galleries and will offer a presentation spanning videos, sculptures, paintings and mixed media installations.
The halls, which are nearing completion, will be accessible to the public for the first time on the day of the opening and will also be open during Gallery Weekend Berlin. This new initiative reinforces the spirit of collaborative practices between galleries and the artistic community of the city of Berlin, which remains strong and vibrant.
