Mummery + Schnelle - London - United Kingdom

Mummery + Schnelle was established in 2007 by Andrew Mummery and Wolfram Schnelle. The gallery exhibits international contemporary art, building on an artist base established by Andrew Mummery, that focuses mainly on painting and photography.

The gallery’s exhibition programme has recently started to feature conceptual art made in the 1960s and 70s and employing photography as its primary medium. Exhibitions of the work of Luigi Ghirri (Sept/Oct 2011) and Giorgio Ciam (Jan/Mar 2012) re-examined the work of two artists working in Italy during a period situated between Arte Povera and the Transavantgarde who questioned the nature of the art object, its reception and its making. Last year the gallery started to work with British artist Stuart Brisley, probably best known for the series of key performance related works created in the 1970s and 80s that re-defined what “performance art” might be and encompass. In September 2012 the gallery staged an exhibition that which included key photographic works from the 1970s by two important Colombian artists, Miguel Angel Rojas and Fernell Franco. In September 2013, the gallery will present an exhibition of postwar photography from Poland focusing on rarely seen material from the 1950s and 60s.

The gallery’s critical approach aims to generate dialogue and debate through a phenomenological reading of art and its reception. The majority of exhibitions are complemented by a series of commissioned texts and publications, considering the gallery as a meeting space for artists, scholars and collectors.
