As we prepare to open the doors to Areal Böhler for this year’s edition of Art Düsseldorf, we want to introduce the 26 galleries that will be showcasing art in our booths for the very first time. With representation from exhibitors in Spain, Italy, Peru, and the Netherlands, plus a fresh crop of German-based exhibitors, we are excited for you to get to know the galleries we are welcoming to the art fair.

Baudach, Galerie Thomas Fischer, Galerie Thomas Schulte, Persons Projects, Soy Capitán, Galerie Gebr.

Among the many galleries around the world entering Areal Böhler for the first time, an incredible 19 of them will come from Germany. As guests wander through the fair, they’ll be able to find works by artists represented by Galerie Gebr. Lehmann (Leipzig); Mike Karstens (Münster); Max Goelitz and Knust Kunz Gallery Editions (Munich); Jacky Strenz and Philipp Pflug Contemporary (Frankfurt); and Clages and Fiebach, Minninger (Cologne).
From Berlin, a total of nine new galleries will show at the fair, including Aurel Scheibler, Buchmann Galerie, Galerie Friese, Galerie Guido W. Baudach, Galerie Thomas Schulte, Persons Projects, and Soy Capitán, plus a special shared booth by Daniel Marzona and Galerie Thomas Fischer. To round out our fresh new offerings from German galleries, hometown exhibitors will include Düsseldorf’s Galerie Rupert Pfab; and the Konrad Fischer Galerie.
Since opening its doors in 1967, the contemporary art gallery founded by Dorothee and Konrad Fischer has been an integral piece of the city’s artistic community. Over decades, Konrad Fischer Galerie has shown the works of such artists as the minimalists Carl Andre, Hanne Darboven, and Sol LeWitt, sculpturist Paloma Varga Weisz, and many others.
Now, for the first time, the gallery will fill a booth at Art Düsseldorf to showcase the latest works from contemporary artists they’ve cultivated. With the local legends finally settling into Areal Böhler, this will be a booth that must be seen.
For Galerie Guido W. Baudach’s first showing at Art Düsseldorf, they handed over the reins of their booth to German artist Thomas Zipp for a sprawling solo show. Over a career spanning decades, Zipp’s work has explored the darkest themes of humanity. Decommissioned Patriot Missile warheads have been rendered into symbols of sex and power; psychedelic laboratories with masked figures have haunted viewers; apocalyptic landscapes have cropped up in paintings.
With dozens of solo shows around the world and works in the collections of both the Tate Modern and the Museum of Modern Art, the new pieces that Zipp will unveil at Galerie Guido W. Baudach’s booth will be essential viewing for every attendee.
Since the inception of Art Düsseldorf, we have always welcomed a range of galleries from our neighbors in Austria, and, this year, we are pleased to introduce three new exhibitors to the fair. From Innsbruck, the prestigious Galerie Elisabeth & Klaus Thoman, which was founded in 1977, will make their debut. Coming from a few hundred kilometers away in Vienna, the galleries Layr and Shore will also pack up their works and settle into the Areal Böhler for the first time.
We are pleased to welcome a range of galleries from around the world who will travel to Art Düsseldorf for their debut. Among this year’s new entries will be the A+B Gallery from Brescia, Italy which has been showcasing Italian and international artists since 2011, as well as Madrid’s groundbreaking Sabrina Amrani gallery, which has been mixing artists from across the East and West for over a decade. From The Hague, Netherlands, the Dürst Britt & Mayhew gallery founded in 2015 by curator Jaring Dürst Britt and art critic Alexander Mayhew will join us, as well as the Luxembourg gallery Nosbaum Reding, who have been showcasing young contemporary artists since 2001.
Rounding out our international offerings is the gallery Crisis, whose home is nearly 10,000 kilometers away in Lima, Peru. For their debut at Art Düsseldorf, Crisis will bring a fresh contemporary outlook from South America in a special shared booth with the returning Munich gallery Sperling.
