Sofia Unicef Matt Miley Galleri Duerr Art Week Kulturnatt Stockholm

Art Week and Culture Night

We believe in cross-cultural meetings, for example when Matt Miley’s strong female trickster is shown together with a single portrait made up of hundreds of unseen children. UNICEF’s For Sofia is every child and no child at the same time, created by the 3D animators behind the films Avatar, Planet of the Apes and TinTin. On Wednesday April 20, Sofia is here to share her story and Galleri Duerr will be starting a ”Silent Auction” in cooperation with Najdron Gallery to benefit UNICEF Children’s Emergency Fund giving aid to affected children. The work up for auction is a portrait photo, size 100 x 100 cm, of UNICEF’s new symbol ”For Sofia” – a collage of hundreds of children from all over the world in one single image. The auction begins directly after UNICEF presents the image at 4 pm and the journalist Nils Resare and digital expert Brit Stakson have spoken. You may make your bid on site at the gallery on Vanadisvägen 29 during Art Week until closing at Stockholm Culture Night on Saturday April 23 at midnight. You may yourself choose if you wish to remain anonymous or if you would like to have your name or your company’s name visible. Click on the following link to learn more about ”For Sofia”.

For each sold piece of Matt Miley’s work Galleri Duerr will be gifting a one-year ”Världsförälderskap”. Why not stop by us this week and become one yourself or as a give away?

Matt Miley Assimilation in the snow Galleri Duerr Affordable Art Fair Stockholm Culture Night 2015 Clarion Sign

Stockholm Art Week

Artist Talk Matt Miley Thursday April 16 at 7 pm /19. Matt’s work “Assimilation in the Snow” 183 x 305 cm, made in New York/Missisippi, first time showing in Sweden is heavily influenced by his life experiences in the southern United States. During graduate school, Matt pursued an opportunity to study in London and Amsterdam. There, he observed a complex social, cultural, and political environment. Europe bares some similarities to the southern United States but is often completely divergent. Matt’s research involved the critical reason, comparative mythology, and theory in contemporary art. Matt Miley will also talk about his very special layering technique using layers of ink drawings on drafting film.

Galleri Duerr Stockholm Art Week 2015 Clarion SignEach day during Stockholm Art Week ​April 14-19 at 12 noon, 4 pm and 7 pm Galleri Duerr will hold a storytelling presentation about the on-going project with Alannah Robins’ 1.5 meter tall “A Sculpture in Liquorice”, her oilpaintings “Woman under water”, Nuno Perestrelos poetic large format images about democracy and Matt Mileys “Assimilation in the snow”.

No we did not fail!

closeup_sculpture_re We tried something new – with inspiration from Art Basel using Kickstarter to generate support for selected visual arts projects worldwide, we started our first very own crowdfunding project “A Sculpture in Liquorice”. Alannah Robins’ 1.5 meter tall sculpture is a work in progress – currently made with 35 kg of liquorice and first shown at the Liquorice Festival March 21-22, with over 11 000 visitors. During both the press conference and the Liquorice Festival, Alannah worked on building up the figure’s skirt. Her work drew crowds who enjoyed seeing such a professional contemporary artist in action. Johan Bülow and the Lakrids team from Denmark, who compete internationally in sculpting chocolate, had never seen anything like it. They came with some good advice on how to ensure that the sculpture will be long-lasting. Alannah Robins shared her experience as a sculptor in return. Who knows, maybe we will meet in the international arena. lotteberättar_bw Many interesting meetings and conversations took place during the Liquorice Festival, between art experts and people just interested in learning more. Galleri Duerr’s exhibition “Playfulness and the Lack Thereof” included the American artists Matt Miley and David Eisenhauer and Swedish artists Lina L. Baker and Patrik Lundell – a timely statement on the importance of play in our everyday lives.

We believe art exhibitions are great ways to tell important stories of our time, and that this storytelling is a way to make contemporary art more accessible to everyone, regardless of age. That is why Galleri Duerr has been operating as a pop-up gallery since June of 2014, with the goal of reaching out to a wider and more diversified audience with high quality art. Last year the gallery participated in the Affordable Art Fair Stockholm as one of the best selling galleries, with 14 500 visitors. People from 76 countries have found our website and we have since then been invited to exhibit in different countries with national and international contemporary artists.
