Berlin-Paris 2011: Jan. 14–15, 2011


In Berlin: January 14 & 15
In Paris: January 28 & 29

After two successful editions, in which Berlin-Paris has become an international gallery weekend fixture in everyone’s art diaries, the event kicks off in January 2011 for the third time. Once again, the joint weekends will feature several high-quality new participating galleries.

A key element in the selection process was an ambitious programme designed to entice as broad a spectrum of galleries as possible, ranging from established venues all the way to young, avant-garde galleries.

The Paris galleries will be showcased in Berlin on January 14th & 15th followed by the invitation extended to the Berlin galleries to present their exhibitions in Paris on the weekend of January 28th & 29th. The main events will be concentrated upon these two opening weekends. The duration of respective exhibitions will be left to the individual galleries’ discretion.

Participating galleries and their programs:

In 2011 Berlin-Paris promises once again a series of surprising exhibitions encompassing icons of Classical Modernism as well as promising, emerging artists. Approximately 30 exhibitions based on the represented artists by the participating galleries will be organized involving a whole range of French and German as well as international positions and reflect the diversity of the Berlin and Paris art scenes.
