Gallery History & Program

Casas Riegner Gallery was established in Miami in 2001 for the purpose of promoting Latin American contemporary art. In 2004, after achieving an important position within the Miami art scene, the gallery embarked on a challenging project: the dissemination of contemporary Colombian art on a local and international level. In March 2005 the gallery opened its doors in Bogotá, thus developing a complete and ambitious gallery project that focuses on research and artist selection with a clearly defined curatorial approach.
The gallery aims at introducing new artists to local and international audiences and establishing a vital exchange between emerging contemporary artists, a new generation of art collectors, and local and international institutions.

Historia y perfil de la galería

Galería Casas Riegner fue fundada en 2001 en la ciudad de Miami con el propósito de promover el arte contemporáneo Latinoamericano. En 2004, luego de labrarse una posición importante dentro de la escena artística de dicha ciudad, la galería se planteó un nuevo reto: diseminar el arte contemporáneo colombiano tanto a nivel local como internacional. Para llevar esto a cabo, Casas Riegner abrió sus puertas en Bogotá en marzo de 2005, desarrollando desde entonces un proyecto galerístico ambicioso que se centra en la investigación y selección de artistas en el marco un proyecto curatorial definido.
La galería busca introducir a estos nuevos artistas en el escenario local e internacional, promoviendo además la interacción entre artistas, una nueva generación de coleccionistas e instituciones.

Torsten Blume explores aspects of nudity in modernism, Zvi Efrat writes about Arieh Sharon’s “tropical architecture” in Nigeria, Brenda Danilowitz proves the influence of pre-Colombian art on Anni Alber’s work with textiles, Carola Ebert and Stefan Locke offer a cultural history of the bungalow as a global architectural phenomenon, Regina Bittner describes the transcultural exchange between Indian and European modernism and Marion von Osten analyses the insidious propaganda used by the Nazis to discredit the Weißenhof settlement in Stuttgart as an “Arab village”.

Although the Californian conceptual artist Robert Kinmont’s work dates back to the late 1960s and the beginning of 1970s, this is the first monograph ever. Kinmont is primarily concerned with his environment, the Californian landscape. He works with simple, mostly natural materials, and places them in relation to his body and his life. Probably his best known work, entitled 8 Natural Handstands (1969/2005), a series of photographs showing the artist doing handstands in abandoned landscapes, on the edges of cliffs, river beds, forests and deserts, was illustrated in Lucy Lippard’s famous book Six Years: The Dematerialization of the Art Object from 1966 to 1972. Not so long afterwards, Kinmont retreated from art practice for the following three decades. Recent solo exhibitions in Glarus and Bremen have been the occasion for a long overdue publication. Kinmont is back.
