This weekend Art Berlin Contemporary will begin making the city a hotbed of artful activity. Organized in 2008 by a group of Berlin-based gallerists, each September abc showcases and hosts contemporary art exhibitions from around the world. We have compiled a list of solo and group exhibitions that include major players in Berlin’s contemporary art scene, including artists such as Sterling RubyFiona RaeWinston Chmielinski, and more. Let Berlin’s urban charm set the stage for a weekend of fresh and exciting art. Between gallery hopping, be sure to glimpse the richness of Berlin’s street art, a medium of expression that dates back to the erection of the Berlin Wall. Check out artnet News’ coverage of Berlin’s top five graffiti and street art murals. Between the city’s cultural edge and its street art gems, you won’t want to miss out on any of what Berlin has to offer.
