Check out the show "SPEED" with works of ADEMEIT and BENDER

Opening Sat 30 Jun 2018, 7pm
We are looking forward to the opening at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart

"There is a collaborative impulse behind James Richards and Leslie Thornton’s SPEED, one that renders the lone paranoid monologue of anxious speculation into a dialogic practice. In the process of realising SPEED, Richards and Thornton have been concerned with a number of psychic and temporal states, rushes of interconnectedness and scientific wonder, as well as a sense of ecological dread and anxiety. The exhibition takes the form of two major new commissions by Richards and Thornton, alongside a show-within-the-show convened by Richards with works by Horst Ademeit, Adelhyd van Bender, Bruce Conner, Emily Feather, Terence McCormack, Jeff Preiss and Jens Thornton.

There is an atmosphere of obsessive energy in SPEED, a recurring fascination with rays, of systematic sorting and recording of experience, and with mind altering effects and rituals. A number of the works in the group exhibition were made against a backdrop of apprehension and self-destruction during the Cold War. There is a sense of frantic repetition, labour and a command to activity, which van Bender described as ‘Divine Drudgery’. It is a spirit also present in Bruce Conner’s psychedelic inkblot drawings. The oscillation between an ordering impulse, and the relinquishing of control is a recurring feature of SPEED, one that appears both in the group exhibition and in the newly realised works..."

Bearded Black Men
June 7 – July 21, 2018
Opening: Thursday June 7th, 5 – 9 pm

"I was born in Brooklyn, NY in year 1981, being single-parented by my mother. At the age of 4, I started to draw beyond a child’s natural ability. I was very gifted for my age. I had a fascination with New York City bridges at the time and I drew them quite well. My art evolved over the years as I’ve gotten older, and around my adolescence I started drawing images of bearded black men. Keep in mind that today my images are what you see all the time on African-American men. My art made me popular in Humanities and the Arts High School and well liked; art being my saving grace from GOD at the time, because I suffered from chronic severe depression as a youth. Which caused me to later on seek GOD in my youthful years, as life became more of a burden where I made several conscious and unconscious suicide attempts, I became infatuated with healing and spirituality. 

This outlet in reading the word of GOD (reading religiously about GOD that loved me no matter who I was and what I did through His Son Jesus Christ) really liberated me causing me to take less medication for psychosis; loving myself-others with divine purpose. The bearded look is the image GOD favored speaking through Moses, for men not to use razors, I later found out. Since then, 
I’ve been desiring a full beard and drawing men with beards in my years to come. I attended art classes to enhance my craft throughout my life. During high schoolI attended Saturday classes at F.I.T., summer school courses at Brooklyn Museum of Art, night classes at the Jamaica Art Center, 
I received knowledge from Katherine Gibbs School (Associates Degree in Visual Communications), after high school and hands-on Saturday Studio sessions at HAI in the latter days of my life. My art is my voice for the human race. I use bearded black men as symbolic expression for possible change for the African-American male community. Expressing to them that we as a black male people can be victorious, achieving needed healing and unity. I have respect and honor towards black women too, plus I sometimes draw black women as a form of reverence to God’s creation. But my main focus is the male portion. My work is a testimonial that black men can be seen in a more positive, righteous light."
Artist's statement for the Wynn Newhouse Awards, 2016

"In the current polarized landscape of American politics, where the aspirant Presidential candidate Donald Trump can call for a ban on Muslims traveling to the United States as the Black Lives Matter movement demands equality for African Americans in in the political process, Coard’s deeply empathetic work, which explores the complex questions of race, spirituality, sexuality, and identity, finds perhaps an even greater agency and sense of urgency."
Curator Matthew Higgs about Coard's exhibition in Glasgow, 2016

Derrick Alexis Coard died unexpectedly in August of 2017.
The exhibition is a collaboration with White Columns, New York

"It is always a thrill to discover such fully realized art..."

Hipkiss, Bulwark #8 (detail), 2017,
graphite, silver ink, silver tape, and metal leaf on paper, 89 x 16"
For Artforum: 
Matthew Weinstein on HIPKISS Show 
April 12 - August 6 in NY 

"It is always a thrill to discover such fully realized art—Hipkiss’s Alpha and Chris Mason have been making work together since 1983. Bulwark #5, 2017, is an accumulation of doily-shaped tondos. Elegant cascading squiggles safeguard delicate branches within. The branches appear to be releasing pollen or grasping for tiny flecks of life: sustenance against our intrusions."

Delighted over Oliver Tepel's words about our current exhibition THE NIGHT CLIMBERS OF CAMBRIDGE

Current Edition of Köln Galerien

Check out the current edition of Köln Galerien to the art spaces of Cologne

"Habe ich Peter Parker, das zivile Alter Ego des SpiderMan, je in einer Ausgabe seines Comics in einer Galerie gesehen? Leider versagen hier die präzisen Erinnerungen an den Superheldenkosmos, dem ich nach der Kindheit leider untreu geworden bin. Doch das Wort „Fassadenkletterer,“ das haben mir die einstigen Übersetzer seiner Abenteuer auf ewig mitgegeben. Im Gegensatz zu der Figur populärer Imagination wollten die Fassadenkletterer britischer Universitätsstädte bei ihren Ausflügen auf die Dächer öffentlicher Gebäude unerkannt bleiben. Mit der Publikation des Alpinisten und Outdoor-Pioniers Geoffrey Winthrop Young wurde 1895 das riskante Nachtklettern publik, doch erst 1937 wird es zu einem geheimnisvollen Kult, als ein gewisser Whipplesnaith das bis heute immer wieder aufgelegte Buch Night Climbers of Cambridge veröffentlicht. Zu jenem Zeitpunkt war die Fotografietechnik auch ausgereift genug, eine Menge Bilddokumente entstehen zu lassen. Deren dichtes Schwarz-Weiß präsentiert eine geheime Welt aus jungshaftem Übermut und mysteriöser Performance, in welcher sich die Sehnsucht, alle Grenzen zu überwinden, mit der Eleganz des Freeclimbens und dem Thrill des Agentendaseins vereint. Die Galerie Delmes & Zander widmet den Night Climbers of Cambridge ab dem 17. April eine Ausstellung, in ihrem Zentrum die vom französischen Künstler Thomas Mailaender auf den Weg gebrachte Neuausgabe des legendären Buchs von 1937."

Installation view "Delmes & Zander" at Ebensperger Gallery in Salzburg

Installation View, Courtesy of Delmes & Zander, Photos by Ludger Paffrath

Our dear colleagues showed a part of our program from March 24 - May 05 2018

Text of Ebensperger accompanying the show: 
"Delmes & Zander gehört seit langem zu Ebenspergers Lieblingsgalerien, deren Arbeit eine Ausnahmeerscheinung im Kunstmarkt darstellt und in ihrer Idee von Kunst für uns Vorbildcharakter hat. Umso mehr freut es uns, Delmes & Zander als Galerie, als alternatives Kunsthandelsmodell in unserer Salzburger Galerie ausstellen zu dürfen.

Der Ursprung dieses Ausstellungs-programmes sind Art Brut und Outsider Art, inzwischen ineressiert vor allem der konzeptuelle Charakter der Arbeiten ihrer Künstler. Die Galerie Delmes & Zander erforscht die Grenzbereiche der Kunst und erweitert dabei immer wieder aufs Neue die geltenden Kunstbegriffe. So wurden in den letzten Jahren verstärkt Arbeiten von anonymen Künstlern gezeigt. Ausstellungen wie „Artist Unknown“, „Evidence of Ecstasy“ und „The Erotic Outsider“ erforschen Gebiete wie Pseudowissenschaften, Erotik und Voyeurismus oder Okkultismus, und erfassen somit neue Themenkomplexe.

Weitere Schwerpunkte der Galeriearbeit sind Aufarbeitung und Bewahrung von künstlerischen Nachlässen wie zum Beispiel von Horst Ademeit, Adelhyd van Bender und „Margret – Chronik einer Affäre“, ein Projekt, das große internationale Aufmerksamkeit erhielt. Die Ausstellungen der Galerie werfen mit ihrem konzeptionellen Schwerpunkt Fragen auf über herkömmliche Praktiken des Kuratierens, der Rezeption, der Produktion und der historischen Kontextualisierung von künstlerischen Positionen, die nicht immer klar einzuordnen und dennoch den herkömmlichen Strategien der zeitgenössischen Kunst gleichwertig sind. Wir zeigen eine repräsentative Auswahl dieses Programms:

Horst Ademeit
Adelhyd van Bender
Jesuys Crystiano
Martin Erhard
Margarete Held
Paul Humphrey
Aurel Iselstöger
Margret – Chronicle of an Affair
Miroslav Tichy

"As a system, art fairs are like America: They’re broken and no one knows how to fix them."

Jerry Saltz' proposal on Vulture: 
Break the Art Fair

"As a system, art fairs are like America: They’re broken and no one knows how to fix them. Like America, they also benefit those at the very top more than anyone else, and this gap is only growing. Like America, the art world is preoccupied by spectacle — which means nonstop art fairs, biennials, and other blowouts. Yet the place where new art comes from, where it is seen for free and where almost all the risk and innovation takes place — medium and smaller galleries – are ever pressured by rising art fair costs, shrinking attendance and business at the gallery itself, rents, and overhead. This art-fair industrial complex makes it next to impossible for any medium/small gallery to take a chance on bringing unknown or lower-priced artists to art fairs without risking major financial losses. Meanwhile high-end galleries clean up without showing much, if anything, that’s risky or innovative..."

Horst Ademeit, "20.03.", Courtesy of Bundeskunsthalle

The show with HORST ADEMEIT's Polaroids 
runs till 3 June 2018

"The exhibition presents a selection of works acquired over the last five years by a specialist committee for the Contemporary Art Collection of the Federal Republic of Germany. It includes works by renowned young artists. The acquisitions testify to the high standard of the Federal Collection and show how historical and current developments, collective viewing habits and the questioning of image constructs translate into contemporary art."

"Die ersten Sonnenstrahlen wärmen unsere müden Gesichter. Die Vögel zwitschern im Park und die ersten Würstchen bruzeln auf dem Grill. Es ist Frühling, es ist Zeit für die Art Cologne. Fünf Tage künstliches Licht, keine Privatsphäre und Kunst, die verkauft werden will. Für alle, die ein wenig Sonnenschein erhaschen wollen und durch die Straßen von Köln flanieren möchten, haben wir die richtigen Tipps auf und rund um die Art Cologne zusammengestellt. Und wer hätte uns da besser helfen können als die Kölner Kunstszene."

Harry Thorne picked for frieze The Night Climbers of Cambridge as a favorite to see during Art Cologne 2018

The Night Climbers of Cambrigde, Courtesy of Delmes & Zander

Check out the frieze's guide to shows during Art Cologne 2018

"In 1937, an author working under the ludicrous mononym ‘Whipplesnaith’ published The Night Climbers of Cambridge with Chatto & Windus, a photobook documenting the nocturnal exploits of Cambridge university students. In a series of gritty, monochrome plates, a set of which will be on view at Delmes & Zander during Art Cologne, groups of young, white, probably wealthy (almost definitely drunk) men vault over buttresses, shimmy between drainpipes, stand proudly atop distant nave roofs. On the risk involved in such daring acts of institutional critique, dear ‘Whipplesnaith’ (real name, hilariously: Noël Howard Symington) was defiant: ‘If you slip, you will still have three seconds to live.’"

The Night Climbers of Cambridge, Courtesy of Delmes & Zander

Check out the interview from 2013 

"There’s an element of danger in these photos, too. I think of life as a kind of playground and these photos really show that" 
Thomas Mailaender

Tuesday, 10 April 2018


April 17 – May 31, 2018
Opening April 17, 6-9 pm

„If you slip, you will still have three seconds to live.“ 

The book The Night Climbers of Cambridge was first published in England in 1937.

It is the collected documentation of the activities of a group of Cambridge students with a fondness for a death defying hobby: to secretly scale the century-old Gothic stone masonry of college and town buildings at night. In their obscure interaction with the surrounding architecture, these young men appropriate themselves of the urban landscape and turn King's College campus into their playground.

They capture their nocturnal activities in a remarkable photographic record. It is a documentation of fearless acrobatics, taken from vertiginous angles and illuminated by camera flashes – a testimony of death-defying dauntlessness. The stark contrast between light and shadow results in a breathtaking photographic style that is uniquely dramatic and reminiscent of old film noir thrillers.

The students published the book under the pseudonym 'Whipplesnaith'. Apart from the illustrated photographs, the book features a compendium of climbing routes across the rooftops of Cambridge. The Night Climbers of Cambridge reached cult status amongst climbing societies. It was reprinted in 2007.

The fascination for the night climbers, pioneers of urban exploration, continues unchanged to this very day. Vice Magazine titled a story published in 2013 about the climbers: „Amateur Cambridge Climbing Societies were punk before punk existed.“ They embody the anarchic spirit of punk before punk and instantly bring to mind the daredevil antics of urban climbing or parkour as seen on YouTube or comparable social media channels today.

The artist Thomas Mailaender discovered two sets of the original vintage photographs of the Cambridge climbers and released a comprehensive publication in collaboration with the Archive of Modern Conflict, London, in 2014. One of the two sets is in the possession of Delmes & Zander and will be now shown at the gallery for the first time.

ART COLOGNE April 19–22, 2018
Hall 11.3 / Booth A 22

The iconic photographs of Miroslav Tichý (1926-2011), taken mostly in secrecy, are both an encyclopedic collection of his coveted objects of desire and a long-term study on femininity. Tichý has been shown by the gallery since the early 1990s and is featured in numerous international museum collections. He is regarded as one of the most important photographic artists of our time.
Type 42 (Anonymous) is similarly a study on the representation of female identity: the photographs taken from the television screen are essentially a hand-picked inventory of female film stars from the 60s and 70s. The meticulously catalogued polaroids, each one featuring the name of the actress portrayed, capture all facets of female emotion and thus constitute „an exhaustive study of what it is to be a woman“ (Cindy Sherman). Currently, the artist’s works are on view in the show Outliers and American Vanguard Art at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, curated by Lynne Cooke. In 2014, a book was published in collaboration with Walther König publishing with an essay by Cindy Sherman. The technique of scrapbooking, a method of collecting and arranging image and text clippings from newspapers and magazines, originated in England in the 19th century as a popular pastime. The individually arranged scrapbooks of 1940s-50s celebrities in the exhibition can be viewed as collages of personal longing and desire. 

The bodies depicted in the works of Vanessa Conte (*1977) often push the female form to its physical limits. The works are humourous and prompt a narrative that feels both surreal and ambiguous. As we watch in awe and fascination trying to make sense of what we see, it becomes evident that there is no clear notion of right and wrong. Conte's work has been shown at JB Jurve, Los Angeles; Hester Gallery, New York; Various Small Fires, Los Angeles; Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York; Night Gallery, Los Angeles, Ginerva Gambino, Cologne and others. Upcoming exhibition at: Commonwealth & Council, Los Angeles.

The exhibition "That's right my love, relax" is a collaboration with Rob Tufnell (Cologne) and Ginerva Gambino (Cologne).

The exhibition will run from April 06 - August 12, 2018

"Praised for their meticulously-detailed panoramic landscapes, Anglo-French artists Alpha and Chris Mason, known collectively as Hipkiss, have been collaborating for three decades on intricate drawings that interweave dystopian narratives with a personal lexicon of symbolic forms. Past works by Hipkiss chronicle fictional histories of warring clans, urban crusades, and quasi-apocalyptical societies."

Ania Szremski reviews our booth at Independent

View on our booth at Independent 2018
Check out the article on art agenda

"Chira is described in press materials as a conceptualist, and indeed came of age professionally at the apogee of that dry, cerebral movement, but he might be more accurately described as an engineer, a mystic, and a shaman. (...)"

Check-out AVENUE magazine's review of our booth at Independent 2018

Glimpse on our booth at Independent 2018

"This was my favorite thing I saw, and justified the entire day for me. The objective abstraction of the Romanian artist Alexandru Chira’s whispy drawings and paintings feel like something from the ‘10s or ‘20s. They brings to mind other things as well, like Da Vinci’s notebooks, the art produced by Schizophrenics popular at the turn of the 20th century, or, with their emphasis on strange UFO-like shapes, the contemporary new age movement."

Review of The Art Newspaper of our booth at Independent 2018

James H. Miller writes about our presentation of ALEXANDRU CHIRA

"Like many others at the fair, Saltz thrilled to Alexandru Chira, the subject of Cologne’s Delmes & Zander’s booth, the late Romanian artist’s first solo presentation in the US. Chira’s diagrammatic drawings and canvases are intricate and obsessive elaborations on his creation of a meteorological monument in his small village in Transylvania, which is still being constructed, that will generate rain and rainbows—the artist’s response to a drought that plagued his village for an entire year."

New York Times publishes Don't-Misses at Independent and NADA 2018

Glimpse on our booth at Indenpendent 2018
Delighted to be among Will Heinrich's "very-best" booths for New York Times

"Continue next door to Alexandru Chira (1947-2011) in his first solo show outside Romania. A professor of painting in Bucharest, Mr. Chira spent years building a colorful installation called “De-signs towards the sky for rain and rainbow” in his native village in Transylvania. A series of hazy but elaborate diagrams and drawings, some on a truncated hexagon shape that he thought would promote the land’s fertility, are dreamily enrapturing.”

Matthew Higgs selects his Must-See Galleries at this year's Independent Fair

"Mirror for Self-portrait", Alexandru Chira, Courtesy of Delmes & Zander

Delmes & Zander a Must-See for Director and Chief Curator of non-profit space White Columns 

Garage of Vice network asked Matthew Higgs to name six gallery presentations not to miss. 

"Fair stalwart Delmes & Zander will present, for the first time in the US, a solo exhibition of work by maverick Romanian artist Alexandru Chira (1947–2011). Chira’s visionary practice embraced architecture, design, astronomy, magic, ufology, shamanism, and much more besides; he created a labyrinthine oeuvre that found its ultimate manifestation in the vast, unfinished monument/earthwork he began in 1994 in his hometown of Tauseni, Romania."
