Consistency, honesty in the creative process and the unconditional intention to follow their own artistic trail: the artists have to meet all of these requirements if they would like to work together with Robert Weber. In his gallery Lichtkreuzung in Maxvorstadt, he predominantly dedicates to aspiring talents from different fields. Whether it’s painting, sculpting, photography or new media: the rooms offer enough space for creativity.
Artists capture the current zeitgeist in all kinds of media
The goal Weber has set for himself: he wants to show all of them – the young artists and the current topics. It’s about capturing the zeitgeist quickly and in an enchanting way. Sometimes, it even happens that he gets to know the artists in a bar or on Facebook – like it was the case with the photographer Giles Clarke who is today sponsored by the renowned agency Magnum Photos. The last exhibition Galerie Lichtkreuzung showed was a group exhibition with the works of Marc Aurel, Natalie Kopp und Guido Sieber. The artists presented their works through three different media: in their paintings, sculptures and pictures they take a look at people and show them, and the world in general, in their very own way.
4 May to 30 June: Oliver Weber’s photo series „Social Life at Beach“
From 4 May (vernissage at 7 p.m), the gallery in Gabelsbergerstraße is all about someone who has already reached international fame. Photographer Oliver Weber shows his current series of photographs entitled “Social Life at Beach”. Besides his own books, the artist has already published his pictures in newspapers and magazines, like Die Zeit, Der Spiegel, El Pais and Merian. The Munich native has a special passion for street and portrait photography. The pictures for his series “Social Life at Beach” were all shot on the Canary island Tenerife in 2012 and 2013. The photos show numerous tourists who are pouring into the island - and even though they interact with the Canary environment, they are still very much stuck in their own worlds.
