CONRADS, Düsseldorf

Lindenstrasse 167, 40233 Düsseldorf, Germany



CONRADS' list of artists and the exhibition program focus on new and mid-career artistic positions, creating a dialog between different generations of artists with different cultural background working in all media. Though form and focus of these artists' works vary significantly, their practices overlap in key areas: an engagement with general and fundamental themes culture has historically dealt with, an interest in aesthetics and a willingness to engage with the poetic as well as the critical and the political. CONRADS publish monographs on artists of the gallery and participate in international art fairs since 1992.
