The Mai 36 Gallery focuses on trading and presenting international contemporary art (painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, film and installations).
Our exhibition program is directed at the works of artists preoccupied with the fundamental questions of art, beginning with significant statements of art after 1945, their roots going back to the sixties and seventies (especially Pop-Art, Minimal-Art and Conceptual-Art). We are mainly interested in artists engaged in unearthing art-immanent themes such as the perception of art, art as a form of communication, art as a system, as well as art questioning the importance and function of art in our society: the outlooks of individual artists stimulating and encouraging reflections on the experiences and perceptions of our age. We are intent on working in close collaboration with the artists and presenting their works continuously in individual exhibitions, publications and at the international art fairs of Basel, Cologne, London, Madrid, New York and Miami Beach. We hold about six exhibitions a year, presenting both national and international artists and hope to surprise the cultural scene of Zurich with a number of interesting projects. The Mai 36 Gallery sees itself as an address for both known and unknown artists and wants to encourage the exchange of individual exhibitions between an autonomous group of international galleries.
