Meyer Riegger is a contemporary art gallery with spaces in Berlin, Karlsruhe, and Basel. The gallery upholds a curatorially driven program that includes solo exhibitions of gallery artists, compelling group shows, and engaging special projects.
Meyer Riegger: History of Development
Meyer Riegger Gallery was founded in 1997 in Karlsruhe. Since its inception, the gallery has established itself as a platform to investigate diverse artistic practices, including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, film, performance, and installation-based work. The gallery strives to focus on the world around us. Meyer Riegger creates shows and collaborates with artists who ask questions about our existence and explore important political and social topics.
The early program of the gallery was characterized by featuring artists whose work primarily addressed conceptual or abstract concerns. In the 2000s, the gallery sought to integrate into its program those artists for whom the existential issues of life and death, performance, and the human body play a crucial role.
In recent years, the gallery has experienced continuous growth and development, and its program has become more diverse. With the opening of its third location in Basel, Meyer Riegger solidifies its commitment to operating on both local and global scales.
Meyer Riegger represents over 20 artists working across various mediums, including painting, sculpture, art installations, and photography.
The gallery's roster of talents includes Franz Ackermann, Armin Boehm, Anna Lea Hucht, Melvin Moti, John Miller, Gabriel Vormstein, Jan Zöller, Henrik Håkansson, Daniel Roth, Jonathan Monk, Helen Mirra, Peppi Bottrop, Alexandra Bachzetsis and many more.
