Galerie Eva Presenhuber
Nestled in an industrial warehouse built in the early 1900s, Galerie Eva Presenhuber is a spacious and forward-looking art venue located in the former Maag Areal, in Zurich’s new urban development zone. Owner Eva Presenhuber has years of curatorial experience under her belt. The first gallery she founded was Walcheturm Gallery, launched back in 1989. Her mission is to showcase artists whose merit stretches beyond the commercial, allowing conceptual and experimental works to take center stage. Mixed-media artist Valentin Carron, who represented Switzerland at the Venice Biennale in 2013, has been a regular fixture at the gallery ever since his first show there in 2005, but artists represented by the gallery also include New York-based conceptual artist Trisha Donnelly and Swiss-born Ugo Rondinone, whose mixed-media installations push the boundaries of scale and space. A sister gallery, whose aim is to complement the shows at the original space, opened in Zurich’s Löwenbräu Areal in November 2012.
