Artist Archi Galentz to Have Exhibit in Berlin


BERLIN — Russian-born Armenian artist Archi Galentz will have an exhibit titled “Requiem: Human Image in the Work of Archi Galentz,” in the gallergy of the daily newspaper Junge Welt.

The exhibit will open on Tuesday, August 8, with a reception beginning at 7 p.m. The director of the gallery, Michael Mäde, and the art historian Dr. Peter Michel will introduce the exhibition.

Galentz was born in 1971 in Moscow, to a family of Armenian artists. He studied visual art at the University of Art of Berlin (HdK Berlin). He lives and works mainly in the same city, where he runs his own project space.

The exhibition will present more than 50 works selected with emphasis on portraiture. The works were produced between 1993 and 2017 and put on display a rich variety of formats and techniques. Printed graphics and drawings will be presented together with oil paintings. This is a second exhibition to be supervised by Michel.

A 24-page color catalogue with numerous reproductions is offered during the opening. And it will be possible to acquire a limited edition etching titled “Posthumous Mask,” printed personally by the artist.

The exhibit will be open until October 5.
