After more than a decade acting as a director of two renowned international galleries, and an innovative curatorially-driven project space in the heart of London, Fabian Lang has returned to his hometown of Zurich to open his own space. The gallery launched during ‘Zurich Art Weekend 2019’ with an exciting group show including new or previously unseen works by Sara Anstis, Heidi Hahn, Mernet Larsen, Jessie Makinson, Wangechi Mutu, Mira Schor and Grace Weaver. It is located in a beautiful old town house in the Niederdorf, right behind the Kunsthaus Zurich. It consists of two exhibition spaces – the main ground floor space of over 100 square metres in size, and a high-ceilinged basement offering a further 30 square metres. Gallery Fabian Lang also has the luxury of a large terrace to the rear, offering great potential for sculptural projects. The gallery’s ethos, as set out in this inaugural show, shall remain consistent: to both promote and represent great and innovative artists, and nurture the best talent from the new generation of artists around the world. It will curate and organise four to six original shows throughout the year, both group and solo presentations.
