The Antone Galbert Collection featuring Chris Hipkiss at me Collector's Room, Berlin

From October 1, 2011 to January 8, 2012 me Collectors Room Berlin is presenting the collection of Antoine de Galbert.

Antoine de Galbert has been collecting contemporary art since 1987 with the conscious intent of circumventing the mainstream and certain trends. Folk art, “art brut” and religious objects complete his collection of contemporary works. An interest in motifs of transience and sexuality relate Antoine de Galbert to Essen-based collector Thomas Olbricht; it is in his exhibition venue in Berlin that parts of de Galbert’s collection are now being shown. Antoine de Galbert will be introducing his Berlin audience to works by artists living and working in France, providing an insight into the French art scene (Julien Berthier, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Claire Fontaine, Damien Deroubaix, Mathieu Pernot, Stéphane Thidet …) Concurrent with the exhibition in Berlin, La Maison Rouge in Paris is in turn presenting Thomas Olbricht’s collection. In 2004, Antoine de Galbert opened his own exhibition venue—in parallel to his La Maison Rouge collection activities—where he has been showing three to twelve exhibitions a year ever since. Only rarely does he exhibit works from his own collection. Solo and group exhibitions alternate and are complemented by the presentation of one other private collection each year.

List of artists:
Gilles Barbier, Julien Berthier, Olivier Blanckart, Pierre-Yves Bohm, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Mircea Cantor, Claire Fontaine, Nicolas Darrot, John Davies, Luc Delahaye, Philippe Dereux, Damien Deroubaix, Ernest T, Richard Fauguet, Didier Faustino, Valérie Favre, Dominique Figarella, Elika Hedayat, Chris Hipkiss, Jean-Charles Hue, Jackie Kayser, Bertrand Lavier, Natacha Lesueur, Enrique Marty, Théo Mercier, Nicolas Milhé, François Morellet, Mathieu Pernot, Chantal Petit, Eric Pougeau, François Ribes, Elsa Sahal, Thibault Scemama de Gialluly, Stéphane Thidet, Philippe Thomassin, Barthélémy Toguo, Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille, Henri Ughetto

A catalogue will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.

Exhibition #4 at The Museum of Everything, London

From September 2 - October 25th, 2011
Selfridges, London

The Museum of Everything returns on 2 September with its fourth exhibition. This time round, we can expect ‘over two hundred drawings, paintings and sculptures by international contemporary artists for whom creation is not just art, it is language’.

In a departure from previous exhibitions, the new show will not make use of the museum’s usual Primrose Hill venue. Instead, it’s decamping to Selfridges for what’s described as the ‘most expansive art collaboration in the history of the shop’. As well as taking up internal space, the exhibition will also occupy all of the department store’s famous windows. The show will be accompanied by a yet-to-be-announced events programme and the optimistically named Shop of Everything.

Exhibition #4 features hundreds of artworks by new undiscovered artists information on progressive art studios worldwide physical exhibition and online digital exhibition events, talks, screenings of The Films of Everything.

Dan Miller, William Scott, Harald Stoffers, Thomas Beisgen, Katsuhiro Terao, Tomoyuki Shinki, etc

Exhibition #4 runs at Selfridges from 2 September to 25 October.
