The official blog for everything relating to the former Strychnin Crew & Urban Nation
Strychnin Gallery has returned to Expo XXI in Cologne for this year’s Art Fair 21! Once again our gallerist, Yasha Young, has been a board member for the fair and talked about her views on the current art scene at the opening press conference.
David Hochbaum travelled to Cologne last Friday, and spent 4 days setting up his installation “At The Gates” in the foyer – a 11ft high, 10ft wide tower of houses surrounded by 701 arrows. Luckily, his friend and fellow artist Marcus Poston was there to help, and make the 40 hours of work go easier!
We are all really excited by the work that will be on show at the Strychnin booth this year! David Hochbaum, Madeline Von Foerster, Daniel Van Nes, Wee Flowers, Ansgar Noeth, Raf Veulemans, Michael Page, Jan Czerwinski, Marina Bychkova, Melissa Forman, Marcus Poston, Sophie Bastien and Virgine Ropars all have new pieces on show – check out the work here.
The Strychnin blog will bring you more pictures of the booth, as well as David’s installation, for those of you who can’t make it to Art Fair 21 this year. If you are in the Cologne area please join us at booth B01 EXPO XXI, Gladbacher Wall 5, 50670 Köln-Innenstadt (the inner city of Cologne, the nearest public transport stops are Hansaring / Mediapark) from October 29th – November 1st; visiting hours are from Oct. 29th – Oct. 31st from 1 pm -9 pm and Nov. 1st from 11 am until 7 pm.
