Micky Schubert Closes Berlin Gallery, Cofounds New Brooklyn Project Space

Henri Neuendorf of Artnet reports that Berlin’s Galerie Micky Schubert has closed. The space opened eleven years ago in the city’s Kreuzberg district. Among the artists Schubert represented were Lydia Gifford, Maximilian Zentz Zlomovitz, Thea Djordjadze, Scott Olson, Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili, and Sue Tompkins. In 2014, contributor Melissa Canbaz reviewed a show by Tompkins at the gallery for a Critics’ Pick. The writer called the artist’s work “luminous, enigmatic, and isolated.”

Schubert does have future plans: With Janine Foeller, the cofounder of Wallspace—a New York gallery that closed two summers ago—she is working to launch GrandArmyCollective, a Brooklyn-based project space that will open on September 22. GrandArmyCollective’s website notes it “fosters community and supports a network of peers and artists by providing flexible and affordable exhibition platforms that encourage sustainability, risk-taking, and curatorial rigor . . . . It’s about reigniting the camaraderie, diversity and experimentation that was once so integral to the overall health of the art world.”
