David Nolan and Juerg Judin launched their Berlin gallery with an exhi­bi­tion of Alexan­der Ross draw­ings in May 2008. This exhi­bi­tion was pre­sented in what is by now one of Berlin’s most acclaimed new build­ings: Die Tankstelle, a converted petrol sta­tion from the early 50s. By the end of summer 2008, Nolan Judin Berlin’s new space in Hei­destrasse was completed and inau­gu­rated with an ambi­tious exhi­bi­tion of sculp­tures by the late Ian Hamilton Finlay.

For more than twenty years, David Nolan has played an important role in the New York art scene. Founded in 1987, the orig­inal mis­sion of the David Nolan Gallery was to exhibit con­tem­po­rary works on paper by Amer­ican and Euro­pean artists. The gallery was the first in the United States to orga­nize solo exhi­bi­tions of works on paper by notable artists such as Dieter Roth, Sigmar Polke, Carroll Dunham and Mar­tin Kip­penberger.

David Nolan and Juerg Judin had met as dealer and col­lector in the early 90s. Through their shared pas­sion for draw­ings they first became friends and in 2003, when Judin opened a gallery in Zurich, they became collab­o­rators. They jointly mounted exhi­bi­tions with artists such as Barry Le Va, Richard Artschwa­ger and Carroll Dunham. Sev­eral important collab­o­ra­tive pub­lica­tions are wit­ness to the produc­tiv­ity of the New York-Zurich liai­son. In 2007, Judin left Zurich to gain a foothold in one of the world’s most exc­it­ing art scenes, Berlin. Estab­lish­ing a new gallery together seemed to be a nat­u­ral con­clu­sion of nearly two decades of shared enthu­siasm and expe­r­i­ence.

Nolan Judin Berlin is located in the heart of the new art dis­trict that is pros­per­ing around the Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin’s major museum for con­tem­po­rary art. Unsurpris­ingly, the program focuses on artists that are accomplished draugh­ts­men, painters and sculptors. The gallery brings together estab­lished artists with younger, aspir­ing artists. Rep­re­sent­ing the estate of George Grosz, a tow­er­ing fig­ure of 20th century art, brings a historic dimen­sion to the gallery’s program. David Nolan and Juerg Judin con­tinue to produce comprehen­sive books of high produc­tion value – monographs on Adrian Ghenie’s paint­ings and George Grosz’ Amer­ican oeuvre being the most recent.
