BERLIN.- This year's Gallery Weekend Berlin will take place from the 27th to the 29th of April. A total of 51 galleries will open their exhibitions during the weekend, and six new galleries will participate in the comprehensive program.The new additions, which include Chert, CIRCUS, Supportico Lopez, Galerie Cinzia Friedlaender, VeneKlasen/Werner and Galerie Niels Borch Jensen, will enrich the spectrum of the annual tour with young positions, new genres, curatorially expanded exhibition concepts and international gallery branches. The increased number of participants this year stems from the aim of promoting young galleries that were established less than five years ago. These also pay a lower registration fee.The Gallery Weekend will open with the Welcome Reception on Thursday the 26th April. The galleries' official exhibition openings will be held on Friday. The traditional Gallery Weekend dinner will be held for invited guests on Saturday evening. An exclusive companion program, the events and locations of the concurrent Berlin Biennale, exhibitions in museums and institutions as well as openings at numerous other galleries make up the entire Berlin Art Weekend.
