ABOUT

galleri-duerr_logocropped.jpgGalleri Duerr believes art exhibitions are great ways to tell important stories of our time. With a clear vision of contemporary art being more accessible, Galleri Duerr has, since 2014, been operating as a mobile gallery investing in cross-cultural meetings between different forms of art, artists and generations – national and international, emerging as well as established. Today we are a partner gallery on Artsy.net, a resource for art collecting and education, and participate annually in the Affordable Art Fair and Stockholm Art Week. Our mission is to exhibit in a variety of public spaces with interesting collaborations, always on the look-out for new and innovative ways to reach out. Our exhibitions with Lydmar, for example, focus on highlighting female role models in photography.

Galleri Duerr has had since its start 2006 an exhibition program with contemporary painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and design in focus. During the years the gallery has developed into a living forum for performance and exhibitions in various formats.

HISTORY

Galleri Duerr was founded by Deborah Duerr, who studied design at the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Before moving to Sweden in 1984 to start her own design firm, she worked with studios in San Francisco and New York. Lotte Johansson, film producer and storyteller, creates portraits of our artists and moderates Art Talks. Together they curate and design the gallery’s exhibitions. Their first collaboration was already in 1999 with a Children’s Art Museum Project, holding exhibitions and workshops at The International World Congress of Child Psychiatry in collaboration with Astrid Lindgren’s Hospital, The Water Festival together with SOS Children’s Villages and Swedish Rail’s Culture Train that rolled between Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg.

UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

Galleri Duerr satsar på möten mellan olika konstarter, konstnärer och generationer. Nationella som internationella. Vi satsar särskilt på up and coming artists av hög kvalité, ur ett creative social responsibility perspektiv, inte minst kvinnliga. Sedan juni 2014 arbetar Galleri Duerr heltid utifrån konceptet mobile-gallery med några fasta återkommande punkter, för att nå ut till en bredare publik. Till exempel lät vi bygga en hållbar skulptur i lakrits på Lakritsfestivalen och bygger ibland utställningar med Lydmar.

Galleri Duerr startades 2006 av Deborah Duerr, utbildad vid University of Cincinnati, College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Innan Deborah Duerr flyttade till Sverige arbetade hon på designkontor i San Francisco och New York. Lotte Johansson, storyteller och producent, gör yrkesporträtt på våra utställare och håller i våra Art Talks. Första samarbetet var i projektet Barnkonstmuseum 1999 – där vi initierade mobila utställningar och workshops på bland annat Världskongressen i barnpsykiatri i samarbete med Astrid Lindgrens sjukhus, Vattenfestivalen med SOS Barnbyar och Kulturvagnen med SJ som rullade med ordinarie tåg Stockholm-Malmö-Göteborg.
