“The application is now closed. Thank you for your interest in Fresh Legs 2021”.

“Fresh Legs” is our most recent exhibition initiative, with which we would like to present art forms such as painting,sculpture, illustration, drawing, street art, photography, short film, animation and related media. (NO GRAPHIC/NO MULTIPLE EXCEPT PHOTOGRAPHY) Together with our new cooperation partner, the Inselgalerie Berlin, we create this year,a platform for the public to meet each other and to discuss the art of these fields together. Thus, we offer a place to exhibit and inspire the artists who are still unknown and the already established ones.

The Inselgalerie exhibits solely the works of female artists the 190 square meter gallery, whether it is painting, sculpture or crossover techniques. It has existed since 1995 and, with this coherent program, is the only one of its kind in Berlin. In Galleri Heike Arndt we will be exhibiting all genders.

About “Fresh Legs”

The “Fresh Legs” exhibitions have been of great success since 2013. What is common between the artists is the discussion of humanity and our current way of living, and the reflection of it through completely different media and techniques.
Several of the artists will be selectet from this exhibition for the great opportunity to be shown also in Denmark in the fall.
