An independent panel of experts has selected twenty-five promising young galleries for the New Contemporaries programme. Sponsored by SK Stiftung Kultur der Sparkasse Köln/Bonn, the programme supports young galleries and helps to ease their entry into the art market. The galleries selected are:

Allsopp Contemporary, London; Aschenbach Hofland Galleries, Amsterdam; Galeria Jean Brolly, Paris; Galerie Lena Brüning, Berlin; Galerie Asim Chughtai, Berlin; Sebastian Fath Contemporary, Mannheim; Figge / von Rosen Galerie, Cologne; Grusenmeyer Art Gallery, Deurle; Galerie Andreas Huber, Vienna; Galerie Parisa Kind, Frankfurt/Main; Knäpper Baumgarten, Stockholm; layr:wuestenhagen, Vienna; Motive Gallery, Amsterdam; Véronique Nosbaum Galerie, Contern; Galerie Rupert Pfab, Düsseldorf; Program – Galeria Sztuki, Warsaw; Galerie Schleicher Lange, Paris; Galerie Schmidt Maczollek, Cologne; Sixtyseven Gallery, New York; Galerie Jacky Strenz, Frankfurt/Main, Galerie Olaf Stüber, Berlin; VAN HORN, Düsseldorf; Vartai Gallery, Vilnius; Wandergalerie, Munich; Galerie Eva Winkeler, Frankfurt/Main.
New Talents, the ART COLOGNE sponsorship programme for young artists, was set up in 1980. This year, twenty-three young artists have been selected. ART COLOGNE 2006 also sees the launch of a new programme titled Hidden Treasures. This introduces five artists in solo shows on 40 square metre stands. The programme offers a platform to artists who have their niche in art history but are currently neglected or undervalued by the market, despite the fact that their work is held in museums and private collections. The artists selected should be aged over forty, if still alive. Their work should demonstrate that it has had a major influence on younger generations of artists. Hidden Treasures is designed to attract the interest of collectors, curators, museum experts and art-market newcomers. The programme offers opportunities for collectors to buy works of solid value at reasonable prices. It is a totally new concept unrivalled in the international art fair world. The ART COLOGNE Selection Committee will be launching the Hidden Treasures programme with the work of the following artists:

William N. Copley (Schönewald Fine Arts), Klaus vom Bruch (Galerie nächst St. Stephan), Valie Export (Charim Galerie), Fred Sandback (Margarete Roeder Gallery), Auguste Herbin (Galerie Lahumière), and Paco Knöller (Galerie Karsten Greve).
Open Space, the innovative exhibition programme launched in 2005, is like the Hidden Treasures programme another unique feature of ART COLOGNE. In an open-plan exhibition area, leading international galleries will be showing work by forty artists. Open Space is a curated project with all the features of a sales exhibition. The list of exhibitors will be published in early October.

ART COLOGNE and the City of Cologne will be hosting a wide range of special shows. In addition, an exciting programme of major museum exhibitions in the cities of Aachen, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Duisburg, Frankfurt/Main, Krefeld, Leverkusen, Mönchengladbach, Neuss and Wuppertal will add to the ART COLOGNE experience.
