The origin of the project goes back to the friendship between the gallery owners Anya von Gösseln (Wuppertal/New York/Dublin/Cologne) and Jürgen Grölle (Wuppertal), which has existed for more than 20 years. An important concern of both of them is to connect artists internationally.
The Sparkasse Wuppertal’s primary concern is to support artists from the region,
but also not to look beyond. In this case, Irish and German artists are invited to Wuppertal and
meet artists from the region.
HERE / there
was on view in 2019 in Wexford (Irish Loch Garman), the capital of the eponymous county of Wexford in the southeast of the Republic of Ireland. It took place in several venues in parallel: at Wexford Art Center, Wexford County Council, and at Gallery Camera 8. A performance was held in the meeting room of the Wexford City Parliament.
here / THERE will take place in 2021 in Wuppertal at the customer forum of the Sparkasse Wuppertal, at the gallery pass:projects, at the gallery Friedrich + Ebert and at the Weinkontor (former art space) Wuppertal.
