With a strong field of 180 international exhibitors ART COLOGNE 2009 is set to showcase the whole palette of 20th and 21st-century art and a comprehensive range of the latest art-market trends. ART COLOGNE has launched a new nightly programme in the city of Cologne, starting with a party after the ART COLOGNE Vernissage at the “Alter Wartesaal” on Tuesday, 21st April, 11pm – 2am.

ART COLOGNE 2009 introduces the nightly meeting point “Alter Wartesaal”

Just in time for ART COLOGNE, the managers of the Alter Wartesaal have launched a project in cooperation with the Kölnischer Kunstverein (Cologne Art Association) called “kunstbar” (the art bar) which interprets the concept of a bar in a new and unusual way. A spot, so popular and so closely associated with the art scene is obviously the ideal meeting point and the “place to be” for the galleries and guests of the 43rd ART COLOGNE.

“Alter Wartesaal” und kunstbar – only fifteen minutes walk from the fair venue the nightly meetingpoint for galleries, artists, curators, collectors is located between main trainstation and the Dom Cathedral.

April 22 – 26, 8 pm – 3 am

Exhibition Opening of Christopher Wool at Museum Ludwig

Museum Ludwig presents as part of its series of major temporary exhibitions some 30 large-scale works – both paintings and silkscreen prints – by Christopher Wool. In addition, the 160-part photo series East Broadway Breakdown (1995) will be shown. Christopher Wool is the winner of the Hahn Prize for 2009, which is among the top financial awards in Germany for international contemporary art. The exhibition traces Wool’s artist development in recent years, not least his growing interest in composition and the ways it can be conveyed in such different media as painting, drawing, photography and the print. The main thrust of the exhibition is directed to Wool’s abstract paintings and silkscreen prints since 2006.

Dark Fair at Koelnischer Kunstverein
Dark Fair 09 Cologne – the subversive and experimental miniature art fair will take place without the use of natural or electric light. An international selection of galleries, nonprofits and artists will display work custom to these conditions, using candlelight, flashlights, oil lamps, work that glows in the dark, light sculpture, battery powered video and unplugged performances. In the tradition of the Unfair, Dark Fair seeks to reinvigorate the model of the art fair with a new spirit. Dark Fair will also feature two Video Nights curated by Matthew Higgs and Julia Stoschek, and Submerging Artists, a group show of underwater sculpture. DJing and nightly performances by Spencer Sweeney, Gavin Russom and more.

Sonic Youth Concert
Accompanied to the exhibition „Sonic Youth etc. Sensational Fix” the band will give a concert in Düsseldorf.
