Great success at Munich's Gallery Weekend - OPEN ART 2022

Munich's Gallery Weekend - the Open Art - attracted hundreds of art-loving Munich residents to the best galleries of the Alpine metropolis on the weekend of September 09-11. Among them, of course, the Heitsch Gallery at Gärtnerplatz. 



The highlight was the opening of Antonio Marra's exhibition "TikTok is Therapy", which took place as part of Open Art:



The Naples-born artist thrilled art fans with his multi-perspective OP-Art, which - depending on perspective and angle - produced different images each time.



With his taken-up theme, Marra alludes to the current zeitgeist and moves viewers to reflect on its negative as well as positive effects. In doing so, the fast pace of life, the seemingly endless expanse of possibilities, and a performance society that can hardly be satiated are reflected through his multi-perspective facets. 



Among the visitors to the Heitsch Gallery this weekend were numerous Munich personalities as well as the Karlsruhe art fair director Ewald Schrade together with his wife Susanne. 



Would you like to view Marra's unique works of art and possibly receive advice on a purchase? Then we look forward to your visit. "TikTok is Therapy" is on view at Heitsch Gallery through October 29. 



Send us an e-mail to info@heitschgalerie.de to arrange a personal appointment. We look forward to seeing you.

OPEN ART 2022: ANTONIO MARRA'S TIK TOK IS THERAPY

As part of this year's Open Art, Heitsch Gallery presents Antonio Marra's new exhibition: Tik Tok is Therapy.



Antonio Marra's abstract art is defined by a multi-perspective idea that turns his paintings into vivid, moving kaleidoscopes that change with each step, creating different images depending on the angle.



With his own found style, the painter reflects the techniques of Op-Art and Orphism, creating a surprising experience that allows us to experience unique visual and spatial effects, simultaneously stimulating us to ponder our current behavioral culture.



OPENING HOURS DURING OPEN ART:

SA, SEPTEMBER 10 & SO, SEPTEMBER 11: 12pm - 6pm.



Please register for the official opening at pr@heitschgallery.com. We are looking forward to seeing you!

HENNING VON GIERKE'S MODERN MONA LISA IS ATTACKED AT ART KARLSRUHE

HENNING VON GIERKE'S MODERN MONA LISA IS ATTACKED AT ART KARLSRUHE

After a successful art fair in Karlsruhe, we are now available for you again at our usual location in Munich. 



Five days of sales, interior and collector consultations as well as rows of interesting conversations are behind us - we thank you very much for your great interest. 



As one of the very few galleries, the introduction and presentation of our NFTs gave us particular pleasure. For this, we would like to refer you once again to our collaborating team of experts at FARBE.io, who will of course continue to be available to advise you if you are interested in buying. 



As you may already have noticed, in addition to all the positive news, there was also a small incident reminiscent of the attack on the Mona Lisa in Paris, which has since gone viral: armed with a piece of cake, he goes after Henning von Gierke's "modern Mona Lisa", throwing the pastry with full force right into her face and shouting the blunt words "Shit art market!". 



A statement on the much-talked-about von Gierke case: 



"A disrespectful person wanted to join the ranks of the art assassins who made a destructive attack on Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa.



For me as a painter it is mean that one accepts to destroy a picture - with me it went well because my picture painted with oil colors is not hurt by a cream cake - with water it can be wiped off without a trace remains... But to curse the "commercial art" with a loud cry is for me, for us painters abominable - we live from it and our pictures are our life.



The reaction of the people who witnessed this moment was very compassionate. One woman helped me scrape the cake away from my hair, my glasses, and my clothes. Someone shook my hand and said they sympathised with how hurtful that was and hours later I was still being approached to see if me and my Mona Lisa made it through okay..."



A video of the incident can be found here



In the meantime, you can admire Marco Casentini's works up close in Munich until July 30, before we take a summer break in August. 



Big things are already planned for September - keep September 8th free and stay tuned! 

Gallery for international, contemporary art in Munich, which works on the development and implementation of cultural concepts at the interface art, communication & market. The gallery's special commitment is to contemporary artists who convey modern ideas and re-explore art history.
