Samuelis Baumgarte Galerie celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015 and looks back on a long tradition of international art advising. Founded by Ruth Baumgarte in 1975, the business was taken over in 1988 by her son, Alexander Baumgarte. 2016 our branch in Zurich was opened. The gallery offers more than 1,000 square meters of museal exhibition space.
Over 350 solo and themed exhibitions with accompanying publications have been presented at the gallery in Bielefeld, Germany and at important art fairs such as ART COLOGNE, art forum berlin, Arte Fiera Bologna or FIAC in Paris. The gallery specialises on both established and new positions of 20th and 21st century art, while focussing on intermedia tendencies.
Samuelis Baumgarte Galerie’s activities emphasise on the presentation of significant international artistic expression by incorporating various styles of artistic masters as a mirror of our time. Major exhibitions showcased amongst others Karel Appel, Fernando Botero, Max Ernst, Lucio Fontana, Sam Francis, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Heinz Mack, Emil Nolde, Niki de St. Phalle, Otto Piene, Serge Poliakoff and Frank Stella.
The architecture of the building allows almost every kind of exhibition concept including painting, photography, installation and sculpture. As a member of the “Federal Association of Galleries and Art Dealers of Germany”, the gallery constantly exhibits international contemporary art, classic modern and young experimental tendencies.
The gallery considers its commitment and full support to its artists as being a natural responsibility, as they represent the heart of the company.
