Having grown in dimension and importance over the years Art Cologne 2015 extends now over three halls for the first time. Being the world’s longest serving art fair for modern and contemporary art of the 20th and 21st century Art Cologne draws each year approximately 200 international galleries and a broad audience of curators, artists, galerists and collectors to showcase and enjoy painting, sculpture, photography, prints, multiples, installations, performance and moving image art.
This year Masterpieces of Modern and Postwar Art have found a home in Hall 11.1., Contemporary Art presented by internationally renowned and based art dealers have set up their booths in Hall 11.2 while around thirty younger galleries are to be found in the upper Hall forming the New Contemporaries section joined by another thirty participants of the Collaborations section.
Some of the highlights of Modern and Postwar art include: work by Andy Warhol with his Mona Lisa (four times) presented by Klaus Benden Gallery of Cologne, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner presented by Henze & Ketterer & Triebold of Bern, Daniel Spoerri presented by LEVY of Hamburg, Kazuo Shiraga shown by Whitestone Gallery of Tokyo.
