Since 1989, Toronto and Frankfurt am Main have been sister cities. Recently, however, this partnership has become somewhat forgotten. Anita Beckers, along with the cultural bureau of Frankfurt and Art Toronto director Susannah Rosenstock, would like to reactivate this long-standing collaboration between the largest city in Canada and the German Rhein-Main Metropolis. That is why during this year’s edition of Art Toronto, Anita Beckers will be exhibiting exclusivley Frankfurt born and/or based artists at her stand, C 09.
In conjunction with the mission statement of the gallery, Anita Beckers will present nine emerging artists who work in different, artistic mediums and have been represented in international exhibitions: Viola Bittl, Lena Ditlmann, Björn Drenkwitz, Jonas Englert, Christiane Feser, Norbert Frensch, Yasuaki Kitagawa, Christian Orendt and Jan Schmidt.
Gallery Artist, Clare Langan, will be exhibiting at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery in Owen Sound from January 15 – May 14, 2017. Anita Beckers showed Langan’s films at last year’s Art Toronto where curators at the Tom Thomson first were introduced to the Irish artist.
