BMW is partner of the Gallery Weekend *Discoveries. New format to be presented in Berlin from September 16 to 18.

Munich/Berlin. From September 16 to 18 and in
addition to its traditional event held in May, Gallery Weekend Berlin
will present its first edition of Gallery Weekend *Discoveries in
Berlin. As part of this new series of exhibitions, the majority of the
49 participating galleries will showcase their latest artistic
discoveries. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, BMW Group
Cultural Engagement supports this new format as partner as well and
will again provide the VIP shuttle service for the galleries.

The first edition of Gallery Weekend *Discoveries will kick off a
series of exhibitions in which the galleries will highlight their
newest discoveries. Artists not previously shown in the respective
gallery will be presented to a broad public for the first time. While
some artists’ work will be featured in solo exhibitions, others will
be shown as part of additional or group exhibitions.

On Friday, September 17 and Saturday, September 18 the participating
galleries will be open to public and all citizens of Berlin and its
guests are invited to visit them from 11.00 AM to 7.00 PM.

For further information about the participating galleries and the
artists, please refer to the website
In addition, the website will serve as an ongoing collection of
journal entries on collectors, artists and critics over the course of
the year and will give continuous insights into Berlin’s art scene.

Initiated by Berlin gallerists in 2005, the Gallery Weekend brings
together different gallery exhibitions that are spread across the
whole city. With its latest edition Gallery Weekend Berlin illustrates
the co-operative nature and close collaboration of the city’s
galleries now more than ever and strengthens Berlin’s position as an
art destination. Gallery Weekend *Discoveries is an event developed
and organized by the Gallery Weekend Berlin network and continues to
anchor the date in September on the international arts calendar. Both
events highlight the vital work of galleries as they champion and
foster support for their artists, working alongside them to facilitate
and conceive innovative and thought-provoking exhibitions. The weekend
provides opportunities to discover new names or deepen existing passions.
