A contemporary art gallery in a location like no other, Am Tunnel is situated inside a tunnel originally built to connect four of the city’s banks. Visitors are greeted upon arrival at the reception desk before descending four floors below street level to begin exploring the expanse of exhibitions hidden underground. Am Tunnel displays works from world-famous artists including Luc Peire and Bernd Schuler; as well as the temporary exhibitions, the gallery also dedicates a part of the tunnel to a permanent exhibit of Edward Steichen’s photography. The themed exhibitions and retrospectives are free for visitors to explore as they enjoy the unique, tucked away setting of the gallery.
A private gallery dedicated to providing a stage for young, talented European artists, Artium has hosted more than 300 exhibitions since it first opened its doors to the public in 1978. The owners of the gallery go in search of new talent at art fairs, studios and academies around Europe and have so far worked with artists from 16 different countries. The art on show tends to be innovative and conceptual but Artium is always open to other genres and cross-genre experimentation. To see sculptures, multiples, photographs and digital art created by artists at the very beginning of their careers, this is the gallery to go to in Luxembourg.
