The first show of the G2 presents a selection of artworks from the Hildebrand Collection by emerging as well as renowned and internationally successful artists from Leipzig.

About

On the occasion of Leipzig’s millennial celebration, the G2 Artspace will open with an inaugural show dedicated to Leipzig presenting a selection of artworks by more than 20 artists of the so-called New Leipzig School. The G2 Artspace will thereafter permanently present parts of the Hildebrand Collection.

The first show of the G2 Artspace presents 50 artworks from the Hildebrand Collection by emerging as well as renowned and internationally successfull artists from the so-called New Leipzig School, including important names like Tilo Baumgärtel, Uwe Kowski, Rosa Loy, Neo Rauch, David Schnell and Matthias Weischer. Painting has shaped the history and the image of the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig as no other artistic genre. All artworks on display in our first exhibition are from the period following the year 2000 and provide the visitor with an insight into the diversity and tendencies of recent contemporary painting. The Leipzig context will be expanded and activated by a dialogue with works by three other German contemporary artists represented in the collection: Daniel Richter, Ruprecht von Kaufmann and Stephan Balkenhol. The emphasis on painting will be complemented by selected works from drawing, photography and sculpture.

G2 #1 marks the beginning of the exhibition activity of the newly created G2 Artspace in the city centre of Leipzig as well as a starting point for the collector and entrepreneur Steffen Hildebrand, who presents for the first time a selection of artworks from his private collection. He initiated the whole project with the aim to create a permanent and public exhibition space where parts of his collection will be on view in constantly changing installations and where artists find a forum for personal and group expositions.

Participating artists: Hans Aichinger, Stephan Balkenhol, Tilo Baumgärtel, Christian Brandl, Peter Busch, Jörg Ernert, Tom Fabritius, Sebastian Gögel, Henriette Grahnert, Paule Hammer, Ruprecht von Kaufmann, Martin Kobe, Uwe Kowski, Peter Krauskopf, Edgar Leciejewski, Tobias Lehner, Rosa Loy, Malte Masemann, Jochen Plogsties, Ulf Puder, Neo Rauch, Daniel Richter, Johannes Rochhausen, Christoph Ruckhäberle, Rigo Schmidt, David Schnell, Kristina Schuldt, Robert Seidel, Miriam Vlaming, Mirjam Völker, Hendrik Voerkel and Matthias Weischer.
