For its fifth edition, which will take place from 8 to 10 November 2019 at Halle Victor Hugo, Luxembourg Art Week will expand its exhibition space by more than 1,000 sqm and feature more than 60 contemporary art galleries, cultural institutions and artists’ collectives in three sections: Main Section (33), Take Off, the prospective section (26) and First Call, a specially created section with a selection of first-time professional exhibitors (7).
Ten new exhibitors will join the Main Section, including Galerie Albert Baumgarten (Freiburg), Galerie Laurent Godin (Paris), Galerie Kleindienst (Leipzig), Galerie Anja Knoess (Cologne), Galerie Voss (Düsseldorf), QG Gallery (Brussels) and ZS art galerie (Vienna). The new layout allows for booths of up to 65 sqm.
Luxembourg Art Week also renews its commitment to supporting emerging galleries by presenting a selection of high-quality exhibitors in the Take Off section. Galerie 1:1 (Luxembourg), Dauwens & Beernaert (Brussels), David Behning Gallery (Düsseldorf), Rossicontemporary (Brussels) and the Saarländisches Künstlerhaus (Saarbrücken) will join us for the first time and complete the list of returning exhibitors such as Bermel von Luxburg Gallery(Berlin), Galerie 8 + 4 (Paris), Modulab (Metz), Nosbaum Reding Projects (Luxembourg) and Polarraum (Hamburg).
The fair will also launch a new section, First Call, which aims to encourage international galleries to come and test the Luxembourgish market. This year we are welcoming Cosar HMT (Düsseldorf), Klemm’s (Berlin), Galerie Arnaud Lefebvre (Paris), Petra Rinck Galerie (Düsseldorf) and Galerie Nadja Vilenne (Liège). Galerie Eva Meyer (Paris) will present a solo show by Man Ray, while Adrián Ibáñez Galería (Tabio/Cundinamarca) will be the first Colombian gallery to take part in the fair.
For the second consecutive year, Luxembourg Art Week gives carte blanche to Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain for an experimental display. As part of this innovative format, the Luxembourgish artist Daniel Wagener will present dispositif(s), a participative exhibition that looks at the material conditions of exhibition-making through the tools and devices (display cases, wall labels, etc.) characteristic of trade fairs and commercial presentations. This project, which was specifically conceived for the context of the fair, will complement the rich programme of events at the fair, which includes conferences, performances, film screenings, children’s workshops and much more.
