Christian Ehrentraut directed LIGA, an artist-initiated gallery that brought the so-called Young Leipzig Painters to an early fame, from 2002 to 2004. Later, he ran a project space focusing on installations and single works by various artists, organized a series of critically acclaimed salon exhibitions in Berlin and curated shows for museums, institutions and galleries in Dresden, New York, Reykjavik and Tel Aviv.
In January 2009, Galerie Christian Ehrentraut opened on Friedrichstrasse, Berlin with a roster of international artists, among them London based sculptor Andreas Blank, Anan Tzuckerman from Tel Aviv and American video artist Sue de Beer. Still, the gallery has a focus on painting and remains faithful to "LIGA" artists Martin Kobe, Tilo Baumgaertel and Christoph Ruckhaeberle and also works with Franziska Holstein, Philip Groezinger and Italian painter Nicola Samori.
