‹Gran Palazzo›: The exhibition title can be associatively related to a large space, «a big deal» or also Katharina Immekus’s interest in our built and developed environment, which is evident in many of her works. According to her credo, «the key to a good picture, a good house and actually a good coexistence lies in an open, precise and value-free observation.»

The exhibition honors for the first time the outstanding work of the painter and graphic artist Katharina Immekus, which has consistently evolved over a period of 25 years. The fact that the work is currently receiving special attention is shown by the collaboration of two houses in Hesse and Saxony on the exhibition as well as the accompanying catalog, which is published by Lubok Verlag. After its first station at the Kunsthalle Darmstadt, the exhibition will be seen in a slightly modified form at the Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig. Both locations are focal points and places of action for Katharina Immekus.

Raised in Olpe in the Sauerland and in Cologne, she studied at the Academy of Graphic and Book Art in Leipzig from 1994 to 2000, where she co-founded the producer gallery b2 and where her studio is still located today. Since 2015, she has been a professor of artistic design at the Department of Architecture at the Technical University of Darmstadt, where she created an open showroom with the Parkhaus Gallery.

Cooperation partner and second station:
Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig
