Galerie Gisela Capitain
Galerie Gisela Capitain was founded in 1986 and is focused on International Contemporary Art from the 1980s to the present. In 2016 Galerie Gisela Capitain celebrated its 30th anniversary with an exhibition of works by Martin Kippenberger. Together with Günther Förg, Charline von Heyl, Zoe Leonard, Albert Oehlen, Stephen Prina, Franz West and Christopher Wool, Martin Kippenberger belongs to the first generation of artists who have shaped the gallery's program since its founding in 1986. For over 30 years, the gallery's artistic agenda has remained focused on, though not limited to, European and American Contemporary Art from the 1980s until now. In the 2000s Wade Guyton, Seth Price and Kelley Walker, a generation of emerging artists at the time, joined the program, among others. Adding emerging as well as established artists, including Barbara Bloom, Richard Smith or Monika Sosnowska, the gallery continually evolved its program. In recent years, Galerie Gisela Capitain extended its program: Japanese artist Hiroki Tsukuda and Hong Kong based composer, multi media and sound artist Samson Young, joined the gallery, followed by Peruvian artist Ximena Garrido-Lecca and British painter Jadé Fadojutimi. Galerie Gisela Capitain is the representative of the Estate of Martin Kippenberger since 1997. In October 2008 Gisela Capitain has opened a new, 1300 square meter space in a 1960s glass pavilion in Berlin in collaboration with Friedrich Petzel Gallery, New York, to continue and extend the gallery‘s program of exhibitions and projects.
