Alongside the conception and organisation of art exhibitions in both the gallery rooms as well as in prestigious museums, cultural institutes and other international galleries, the sphere of activities in-cludes publishing in addition to – first and foremost – art consultancy and advice for collectors, enthusiasts and professionals. The landmark step of expanding the environment of activities especially to Asia is a consequence of a longstanding and successful international involvement.
Over the past 41 years, the gallerist Peter Femfert has vouched for a sophisticated gallery concept of groundbreaking developments in the art of the 20th century as well as of promising and multifaceted contemporary positions.
In its location in Frankfurt on the Main about five exhibitions in a year are organised showing original paintings, drawings and sculptures. The gallery focus on Modern Art, especially on Surrealism, and CoBrA art as well as on contemporary figurative art led to numerous solo and group exhibitions on these fields, such as Max Ernst, André Masson, Jean Dubuffet, Corneille, Lucebert, Eduardo Arroyo, Emilio Tadini, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Volker Stelzmann, Enrico Baj, Robert Combas, Feng Zhengjie, Heiner Meyer, Torsten Holtz, and sculptors like Igor Mitoraj, Miguel Berrocal, Beate Debus and Dietrich Klinge. DIE GALERIE generally publishes a catalogue for each exhibition.
DIE GALERIE is regularly attending the most important international art fairs, including Art Miami, Art Karlsruhe, Art Cologne, Masterpiece London, Art Paris Art Fair, KIAF Seoul as well as BRAFA in Brussels. The fair exhibitions stand out for their high quality with exceptional works by Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, André Masson, Pablo Picasso, Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, Corneille, Lucebert, Asger Jorn and a sensitive selection of contemporary artists.
By 40 years of networking DIE GALERIE has established contacts to museums, collectors, dealers, artists and art estates and has been able to initiate and organize a number of internationally recognized exhibitions like Dietrich Klinge – Sculptures at the Archeological Museums and places in six medieval cities in Tuscany, Italy, then travelling to Frankfurt, Germany, Es Baluard, Palma de Mallorca and to France; Robert Combas – Joke’r at Ludwig Museum, Koblenz; Lucebert at Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, Netherlands, and Danubiana Museum, Bratislava; Friedensreich Hundertwasser - A Sunday Architect at Deutsches Architektur Museum, Frankfurt and other German museums; André Masson.
