ammann // gallery goes ammann // projects

Over the course of the last decade, ammann//gallery has hosted forty exhibitions featuring contemporary collectible design, architecture, fine art, and photography. During 2017, the gallery is making a review with one unique show that is transforming the gallery into a dynamic exhibition and project space. Ammann//projects is a year-long constant evolving presentation, aiming to deepen the dialogue between the disciplines. The reach of ammann//projects expands the gallery space consolidating collaborations with other galleries and institutions around the world.

After more than twenty years of being a major player in the world of art and design, ammann//gallery is now reflecting on its past in view of its future development. There is no better way to celebrate the gallery’s anniversary than gathering all the artists and designers who have been part of the gallery’s evolution. Ammann//projects begins with a focus on the 1980’s, presenting museum-quality pieces from the highly-acclaimed BAUHAUS collection of Studio Alchimia from 1978/79. Hightlights of the presenation are a 1979 Poltrona di Proust chair and Kandissi Sofa from 1978 by Alessandro Mendini,as well as a unique tapestry Balletto Geometrico (1980) by Andrea Branzi.
– a dialogue that has lain at the core of the gallery’s program since the beginning.
