Contacts & Details
The gallery opened with a seven-channel video-installation by Candice Breitz ‘The Babel Series’, previewed a few months before at the Istanbul Biennale. Since opening, the gallery has aimed at hosting ambitious exhibitions and site-specific installations, encompassing a range of media including, video, photography, performance, painting and sculpture.
The gallery after ten years in its historic location, opened in October 2010 its new space in the Brera area of Milan under the new name kaufmann repetto. The new gallery is designed by architect Frank Boehm.
The growth of the gallery’s artists brought forth the need to enlarge its exhibition spaces, in order to welcome more ambitious projects, articulated in a series of rooms as well as an exterior courtyard, an integral part of the new space. In addition to the existing and long-standing roster of artists, the gallery added new names, such as Thea Djordjadze and Shannon Ebner, whose shows inaugurated the space, Matt Sheridan Smith and Talia Chetrit.
The gallery’s constant research, directed with particular attention to a younger generation of artists, will be developed, in part, through a special project room that will run parallel to the gallery’s exhibition program.
