Art Cologne 2017 | The world’s oldest fair battles with newcomers

By Philippe Danjean / The Happening

For the 51st edition of Art Cologne, the oldest art fair in the world appears more dynamic and international than ever.

Hosting 28 countries (compared to 24 in 2016) with 200 galleries exhibiting, its safe to say the fair is a little more crowded this year. Among the new galleries welcomed, a large majority are French — with notable newcomers including, Thaddaeus Ropac (Salzburg/Paris), Karsten Greve (Cologne/Paris/St.Moritz), Max Hetzler (Berlin/Paris), Perrotin (Paris/New York/Hong Kong), and Daniel Templon (Paris/Brussels), who will all exhibit at the German fair for the first time this spring.

Adam Wilkoszarski

By Dana Stirling / The Aint-bad

Adam Wilkoszarski is a Polish documentary/landscape photographer based Poznań, Poland, born in 1986. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Photography from University of Arts in Poznań. In his works, he concentrates on the ways in which places, which are usually full of people, are changing the very moment when they become empty. He tries to find places in which the borders between public and private spheres are blurred and he is looking for the signs of disappearing or crossing of those borders.

Thaddaeus Ropac On Why Global Galleries Aren’t in Artists’ Best Interest

By Anna Louie Sussman / The Artsy

Thaddaeus Ropac would likely wince at the designation “megadealer,” but he’s undoubtedly one of the world’s greats—a European powerhouse overseeing four spaces on the continent (two each in Salzburg, Austria, and Paris, France) and a new 16,000-square-foot London outpost designed by Annabelle Selldorf and opening this week in Ely House, an 18th-century mansion in Mayfair. Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac represents 57 artists, ranging from art-historical luminaries such as Joseph Beuys, James Rosenquist, and Robert Rauschenberg, to highly sought-after living artists including Georg Baselitz, Sylvie Fleury, Adrian Ghenie, and Alex Katz.
