We would have liked to open the 16th edition of Gallery Weekend Berlin from May 1 to 3 with exhibitions of established artists and newcomers across 48 galleries. After several weeks of gallery spaces being closed, we are very pleased that most of the galleries will be able to reopen their exhibitions—albeit with certain restrictions. A list of participating galleries’ currently running exhibitions, alongside their opening hours, can be found on our website under the link Current Exhibitions. While these times might be marked by travel restrictions, a new online journal will soon be accessible from our website, allowing Berliners and international guests alike to have a digital view into Berlin galleries and their current exhibition offerings.
