In 2019, the Botín Centre celebrates the 25th anniversary of Itineraries, the annual exhibition that displays the work of the artists awarded the Botín Foundation’s Visual Arts Grant each year, which has been running since 1993.
Gallery Boisserée was founded in Cologne in the year 1838, and presently shows art of the 20th and 21st centuries on two exhibition levels, notably graphic art and paintings after 1950, as well as contemporary art. The gallery focuses on original graphic technique as well as works on paper, and binds art dealership with gallery activity in the contemporary art field.
In the field of art after 1950, the gallery presents single-artist exhibitions, Ackermann, Braque, Chagall, Chillida, Clavé, Dahmen, Ernst, Estève, Francis, Hartung, Marini, Matisse, Miró, Motherwell, Picasso, Hernández Pijuan, Poliakoff, Saura, Schumacher, Soulages, Tàpies, among others, and to name only a few of our most important artists.
Gallery Boisserée, for years, has concerned itself with pointing out the quality of contemporary art. By discovering and promoting new and unknown artists, among others, we judge the work by the level of engagement and its exhibition-worthiness. We also consistently print and release catalogues and participate in internationally renowned art fairs, such as Art Cologne, among others. Artists such as Jürgen Brodwolf, Ralph Fleck, Xenia Hausner, Patrick Hughes, José María Mellado, Wolfgang Troschke, Jan Voss and Franziskus Wendels belong to the roster of the gallery’s contemporary art program.
