neugerriemschneider was established by Tim Neuger and Burkhard Riemschneider in 1994 in Berlin and was inaugurated with an exhibition of Jorge Pardo. In its first two years, the gallery presented some of the first solo exhibitions of the then-little-known artists Olafur Eliasson, Sharon Lockhart, Michel Majerus, Tobias Rehberger, Elizabeth Peyton, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Pardo, who remain part of the program today. Steadily expanding over the past 25 years, today neugerriemschneider also counts Ai Weiwei, Pawel Althamer, Thomas Bayrle, James Benning, Billy Childish, Keith Edmier, Andreas Eriksson, Noa Eshkol, Mario García Torres, Isa Genzken, Thilo Heinzmann, Renata Lucas, Antje Majewski, Mike Nelson, Simon Starling, Thaddeus Strode and Pae White, as part of its program.
neugerriemschneider will be presenting an interactive installation by Rirkrit Tiravanija, untitled 2019 (beauté esthétique with no shampoo) (2019), where over 100 handmade ceramic objects are placed amidst mid-20th century furniture. Visitors are invited to rest on a cushioned bench and daybed and help themselves to cooled green tea from one of the artist’s creations. Encircling the room are printed images depicting scenes of protest, each source image hand-drawn from a newspaper photograph of a demonstration. They continue a body of work entitled demonstration drawings, which Tiravanija began at the turn of the 21st century to document political upheaval and public dissonance happening around the globe. In its totality, the work offers a multisensory experience, creating a space for exchange and contemplation.
