DIE GALERIE
History: For the past 40 years, the gallerist Peter Femfert has vouched for a sophisticated gallery concept of groundbreaking developments in the art of the 20th century as well as of promising and multi-faceted contemporary positions.

Activities: Alongside the conception and organisation of art exhibitions in both the gallery rooms as well as in prestigious museums, cultural institutes and other international galleries, the sphere of activities includes publishing in addition to – first and foremost – art consultancy and advice for collectors, enthu-siasts and professionals. The landmark step of expanding the environment of activities to the United States and to Asia by participating in KIAF since 12 years, in ART MIAMI since 2013 and to Europe in BRAFA Brussels (for the first time in 2015) is a consequence of a longstanding and successful internation-al involvement.

Programme: In its Frankfurt headquarter about five exhibitions in a year are organised showing original paintings, drawings and sculptures. The gallery focus on Modern Art, especially on Surrealism, and
CoBrA art as well as on contemporary figurative art led to numerous solo and group exhibitions in these fields, such as Max Ernst, André Masson, Jean Dubuffet, Pablo Picasso and Man Ray for the modern part; Corneille, Lucebert, Karl Otto Götz, Asger Jorn, Carl-Henning Pedersen for CoBrA art; Enrico Baj, Robert Combas, Hsiao Chin, Joe Tilson, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Dario Fo representing internationally renowned artists and sculptors like Miguel Berrocal, Dietrich Klinge as well as famous Igor Mitoraj and Louise Nevelson. Contemporary German positions are represented by Volker Stelzmann, Johannes Heisig and Klaus Zylla.

Art Fairs: Presentations at the most important art fairs are usual, as at Arte Fiera Bologna, Art Cologne, BRAFA Brussels, Art Paris, KIAF in Seoul since 2004, ARCO Madrid, Art Abu Dhabi, Art Chicago and EXPO Chicago, The Armory Show in New York, Art Miami and India Art Fair in New Delhi. The presenta-tions at those art fairs have always been of highest quality with exceptional works by Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, René Magritte, André Masson, Pablo Picasso, Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, Corneille, Lucebert, Asger Jorn and a sensitive selection of contemporary artists.

Cooperations: DIE GALERIE has established contacts to museums, collectors, dealers, artists and art estates and has been able to initiate and organize a number of internationally recognized exhibitions. An intensive and in some cases exclusive collaboration with artists and a friendly relationship to inheritors as Eric and Amy Ernst, grand-children of Max Ernst, to Diego and Lily Masson, the children of André Masson, to the heritages of Friedensreich Hundertwasser and Lucebert resulted in numerous exhibitions like Igor Mitoraj e Pompei in Pompei in 2016; CoBrA 1948-1951. Una grande avanguardia europea at Palazzo del Corso, Fondazione Roma, 2015; Friedensreich Hundertwasser at Osthaus Museum Hagen in 2015; Igor Mitoraj at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Berlin in 2013; Dietrich Klinge – Sculptures at the Archeological Museums and places in six medieval cities in Tuscany, Italy, then travelling to Frankfurt, Germany, Es Baluard, Palma de Mallorca and France; , André Masson. A Mythology of Nature at Museum Würth, Künzelsau; André Masson – Bilder aus dem Labyrinth der Seele, the largest retrospective on the artist at the Institute Mathildenhoehe, Darmstadt, Germany, and the renowned Museo National Centro de Arte ‘Reina Sofia’ in Madrid, Spain, just to mention some.

CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

Herbert Mehler. Growth - Body - Space. Dialogue with the Goethe-University Campus Westend Frankfurt

Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Germany has an outstanding position in the cultural life of the city of Frankfurt am Main. Founded in 1914 as a civic university and continued in 2008 as an autonomous foundation university, it considers itself as a comprehensive place for research and education, for open discussion, innovative thinking and future-oriented acting with social responsibility. In keeping with this vision, the idea was born to present the guiding principles and various aspects of university life in a visually impressive way with a sculpture exhibition.

Surrounded by the spectacular scenery of the park landscape around the Poelzig Building, the Goethe University Frankfurt presents in cooperation with the nearby gallery DIE GALERIE the outdoor exhibition Herbert Mehler. Growth – Body – Space. A series of 18 monumental sculptures by the contemporary German sculptor Herbert Mehler are presented on the Campus Westend. The artist, born in Steinau in 1949, enjoys a high esteem in German-speaking countries and internationally. With their partly geometric, partly organic forms, his towering Corten steel structures, created from uniform lamellae, give the impression of gigantic plant formations of various kinds; the brown-reddish colour typical of Corten steel also conveys a particularly natural impression. With their slender but also powerful shafts, Herbert Mehler‘s sculptures are at the same time reminiscent of supporting elements of architecture and thus build a bridge between nature and architecture.

"The works of the artist Herbert Mehler fascinate me, both as an art lover and a scientist! They seem to unite two poles. On the one hand, they stand for growth, creatureliness and naturalness, but likewise reveal vulnerability; on the other, in their uniformity and kindred structures, they come across like entities from another world ." Prof. Dr. Enrico Schleiff, President of  the Goethe-University Frankfurt/Main
