Mehdi Chouakri Gallery Moves to Two New Spaces in West Berlin
The new spaces in Charlottenburg will open during Berlin Gallery Weekend.
Berlin’s Mehdi Chouakri Gallery is moving from the city’s central Mitte district to a new duo of spaces in Charlottenburg, in the west of the city, Monopol reports. The new spaces will open on April 28, on the occasion of Berlin Gallery Weekend.
According to the gallery’s website, the new exhibition spaces are located at Fasanenstrasse 61, and the corner of Mommsenstrasse and Bleibtreustrasse, on opposite sides of Kurfürstendamm, about a 15-minute walk away from each other.
In West Berlin, Mehdi Chouakri will join a cluster of nearby galleries that include Arndt Art Agency A3, Galerie Buchholz, Contemporary Fine Arts, Neumeister Bar-Am, and Galerie Kornfeld Berlin, to name a few.
The gallery has operated from a space on Invalidenstrasse since its founding in 1996. That area was Berlin’s first hub for contemporary art in the 1990s, and is home to a number of other Berlin galleries and art institutions, including KW Institute for Contemporary Art, the Boros Collection, Galerie Neu, galerie neugerriemschneider, and KOW Gallery.
Mehdi Chouakri represents artists like Saâdane Afif, Sylvie Fleury, Hans-Peter Feldmann, and Isabell Heimerdinger. Its last show in the Mitte location, In Retrospect: Good & Plenty, Too, closed on January 28.
It will inaugurate its new spaces with an exhibition of work by the late Charlotte Posenenske, opening for Berlin Gallery Weekend, which will take place from April 28 to 30.
