GARAGE 30 an exhibition space hosted exhibitions for one night between 2000 and 2005 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. GARAGE 30, Hanuauer Landstrasse 30, was normally my studio and sometimes a temporary exhibition space. Exhibitions took place three or four times a year over a period of five years in total. I invited artists mostly colleagues from the Staedel Art Academy to do solo exhibitions for only one evening.
This web page is meant to substitute a normal catalog in print to let the memory live on and to share with a wider public.This exhibition series was for some of the invited artists an introduction into exhibiting directly from the Staedel Art Academy.
The initial idea was to offer and create a situation where it was possible to have a kind of intimacy; to have the chance to meet the artist in person and ask them questions while within the exhibition situation. Another important point of the project was to offer a space for solo exhibitions for just one night where there was a lot energy involved in the planning, hanging, and presentation all concentrated in the relative shortly time of an opening night. During the project GARAGE 30 I decided to enlarge my own private art collection.
Usually I exchanged one of my works for another artists’ work. Here I offered them chance to exhibit in exchange for one of their works for my collection. This was agreed upon with the artist prior to the exhibition. It was a good idea which functioned perfectly during the entire period of the project. I thank all the artists who exhibited and frequented GARAGE 30. They gave the project integrity, professionality, and enthusiasm.
