Dedicated to contemporary art, KÖLNER LISTE occupies the principal art week in Cologne. In parallel with Art Cologne, the halls of XPOST Köln will be filled with art from April 20th to 22nd, 2018.
The fourth edition of KÖLNER LISTE is designed to inspire and engage, inciting the discovery of new names and artworks. Addressing both new and experienced collectors, the fair will showcase a wide spectrum of emerging contemporary art at affordable prices. With an extraordinary selection of galleries, KÖLNER LISTE aims to become one of the most interesting art events to follow as one of the most progressive art fairs in Germany.
Art lovers see KÖLNER LISTE as an ideal extension to Art Cologne, a place where their view of the contemporary scene is broadened and their collecting possibilities expand. Clad in the friendly and communicative atmosphere, the organizers invites all visitors to enter the dialogue with artists and gallerists and to connect with the international art community. The stimulating environment of KÖLNER LISTE is where many new artistic relationships blossom, and where experienced collectors and first-time buyers can spot and buy original art for their home or office.
The diversity of artistic objects and media is another feature of this art show, ranging from large-scale canvasses to miniature editions. With painting being only one of the mediums present at the KÖLNER LISTE, visitors will be presented with works of sculpture, graphic prints, mixed media, installations, video art and even performance. Notable highlights of the exhibition will be sections dedicated to Photography and Urban Art, each specially curated for the fair.
Next to the variety of art, the quality of works presented is as equally important to the KÖLNER LISTE team. Imbued with the abundance of styles and visual expressions, the art Cologne public will see at the exhibition is carefully selected by the gallerists especially for this occasion. Many of the artworks that had the KÖLNER LISTE debut later found their way into world-renowned art spaces around the world.
Spanning across the 4000 sqm of the historic XPOST venue, the fair will introduce new art Cologne hasn’t seen before, serving as the hub for all contemporary art enthusiasts. The late 19th-century industrial halls of the locale serve as the perfect setting for the exhibition and its program. In addition to art presentations, the Liste will organize various educational programs for artists and art professionals, as well as workshops and guided tours.
KÖLNER LISTE is more than an art fair in Cologne. It is a place of immersion into the art world, an event to connect with art professionals and dealers and meet artists in person, and a market for some of the most inventive high-quality affordable art.
We at KÖLNER LISTE look forward to presenting you with another unique art-viewing experience, hoping to encourage your collector’s spirit to act!
