Berlin’s Silberkuppe Gallery Closes

Berlin’s Silberkuppe gallery has closed its doors. Founded in 2008 by Dominic Eichler and Michel Ziegler, Silberkuppe staged more than seventy exhibitions in its space on Keithstrasse 12. The gallery’s final exhibition was Win McCarthy’s “Mister,” which was chosen for a Critic’s Pick by contributor Kristian Vistrup Madsen. In a statement, Eichler and Ziegler say they are “very grateful to everyone who has supported [us] in the last nine years” and “remain committed to art, in particular art [that] doesn’t shy from the political in all its guises.”

The gallery represented Gerry Bibby, Michaela Eichwald, Margaret Harrison, Tobias Kaspar, Heinz Peter Knes, Laura Lamiel, Janette Laverrière, Adam Linder, Thomas Locher, Fred Lonidier, Shahryar Nashat, Anna Ostoya, Anne Speier, and Phel Steinmetz.
