Sprüth Magers Welcome to the official Sprüth Magers page

Sprüth Magers has expanded from its roots in the Rhineland to become an international gallery dedicated to exhibiting the very best in groundbreaking modern and contemporary art. With galleries located in Berlin Mitte, London’s Mayfair and the Miracle Mile in Los Angeles – as well as an office in Cologne and an outpost in Hong Kong opening in May – Sprüth Magers retains close ties with the studios and communities of the German and American artists who form the core of its roster. The gallery emerged amid an extraordinary outburst in contemporary art that took place in Cologne in the early 1980s. Its first iteration as Monika Sprüth Gallery opened in 1983 with an exhibition of paintings by Andreas Schulze and was soon followed by exhibitions of Rosemarie Trockel and Peter Fischli David Weiss. Over the next few years George Condo, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Louise Lawler and Cindy Sherman all showed at the gallery and have continued to do so for the last thirty years. In 1992 a second gallery opened in Cologne under the name of Philomene Magers. Early exhibitions included Ad Reinhardt’s 'Black Paintings', Robert Morris’s 'felt pieces' and John Baldessari’s photographs and text paintings from the 1960s. The two galleries merged into a single entity in 1998 and in 2000 the Munich space opened with Ed Ruscha’s exhibition 'Gunpowder and Stains'. In 2003 Sprüth Magers Lee opened in London with an exhibition of works by Donald Judd. In 2007 Sprüth Magers relocated to Grafton Street, Mayfair; on show was a selection of new photographs by Andreas Gursky. In 2008 the gallery established its flagship space in a former dancehall in Berlin Mitte – not far from the city’s Museum Island. The gallery debuted with Thomas Scheibitz and George Condo. The latest chapter in the gallery’s history came to fruition in February 2016, with the launch of its space in Los Angeles. Located on Wilshire Boulevard, just across the road from LACMA, it is housed in a two-storey building designed in the late 1960s by legendary West Coast architects William L. Pereira & Associates. It was originally created as part of a complex completed in 1971 that includes the tallest building of the Miracle Mile district, a plaza and reflection pool. The 14,000 square foot space was remodeled as a gallery by the London-based architect Andreas Lechthaler and Berlin-based architect Botho von Senger und Etterlin. The interior features vintage furniture by female California-based designers. Known for its rigorously curatorial approach to its program and for a deep and enduring devotion to the artists it represents, the gallery has, over the past three decades, fostered close and collaborative relationships with museums and curators worldwide. Meanwhile it continues its tradition of commissioning new scholarship and creating innovative books and publications. Sprüth Magers now works with over 60 artists and estates. While continuing to work with mid-career artists such as Thomas Demand and Sterling Ruby, the gallery regularly broadens its program with up-and-coming younger artists such as Cyprien Gaillard, David Ostrowski, Michail Pirgelis, Analia Saban, Alexandre Singh and Ryan Trecartin and Lizzie Fitch. The program is rounded off with important and influential senior artists such as Reinhard Mucha, Frank Stella, the late Richard Artschwager, Hanne Darboven, Bernd & Hilla Becher and the Estates of Keith Arnatt and Craig Kauffman.

Kara Walkers' silhouetted wall work 'THE SOVEREIGN CITIZENS SESQUICENTENNIAL CIVIL WAR CELEBRATION' (2013), at Sprüth Magers, Berlin.

We will continue to share unique content from our exhibitions and artists studios over the next week. Check our feed and Instagram Stories. We have been closely following the ongoing developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we have decided to temporarily close our gallery spaces in Berlin, London, and Los Angeles.

Part of a body of work inspired by Walker’s research into white supremacist movements and gun culture in contemporary America, this frieze work depicts an imaginary battle re-enactment scene from the anniversary celebrations that took place across America in 2011 to mark 150 years since the beginning of the Civil War.

Peter Fischli and David Weiss 'The Raft' (1982/83), on view at the London gallery.

We have been closely following the ongoing developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we have decided to temporarily close our gallery spaces in Berlin, London, and Los Angeles. We will be sharing unique content from our exhibitions and artists studios over the next week. Check our feed and Instagram Stories.

The Raft is made entirely of polyurethane; a material Fischli Weiss first began using for their sculptures in the early 1980s. Polyurethane was originally used mostly in film productions, where it was employed as a component in props and scenery construction. This choice of material situates the installation in the realm of the workshop and labour, a subject the artists explored from the outset of their work together.

For the Art Basel Hong Kong Viewing Rooms, Sprüth Magers is pleased to present a selection of international contemporary artworks that showcase the breadth of medium, style and subject matter employed by the gallery's artists. Highlights include a text-based work by Barbara Kruger that displays her typically charged visual language; a gilded canvas by Jenny Holzer that similarly considers the gaps between word and image; and a painting by John Baldessari that playfully interlaces found imagery with the artist’s own additions in bas relief.

Photographs by Bernd and Hilla Becher, Thomas Demand, Andreas Gursky, and Thomas Ruff offer a nuanced take on the medium’s representative, as well as abstract, possibilities. In Andreas Gursky’s view of a grandiose rally in North Korea, for example, minute figures dissolve into the monumentality of propaganda.

Paintings and drawings by George Condo and Thomas Scheibitz, along with the richly hued pictures of Gilbert & George, further challenge the relationship between abstraction and figuration on various scales, simultaneously looking at character, identity and meaning.
