Galerie Michael Janssen
Bleibtreustraße 1 | Berlin | Art Region: Charlottenburg
Besichtigung nach Vereinbarung
In 1995 Michael Janssen opened his gallery in Cologne where it operated for twelve years and held over eighty exhibitions. From 2002-2006 Michael Janssen operated in collaboration with New York based Leo Koenig gallery in Los Angeles under the name of ‘The Happy Lion’ gallery in Chinatown/downtown LA. Some young LA artists had their first shows at The Happy Lion gallery such as Elliott Hundley and Matt Franks.
The gallery also re-introduced works by mid career LA artists doing solo exhibitions with Meg Cranston, Thaddeus Strode, Monique van Genderen and Erik Parker. Christoph Steinmeyer and Gert & Uwe Tobias had their first solo shows in LA.
In 2007 the gallery moved to Berlin and closed the Cologne space in 2008. The gallery hosted a contemporary program that predominately features European, American and Southeast Asian artists. The focus of the program lies on painting, sculpture and installation from both established as well as young artists.
The gallery is currently moving to their new location in Berlin Charlottenburg at Bleibtreustrasse and will open the new space with a solo exhibition by Margret Eicher.
