ALEXANDER OCHS GALLERIES BERLIN I BEIJING was founded 1997 in Berlin - Mitte with a special focus on Asian, mostly Chinese Contemporary art. Since 2008 the gallery represents international European artists in exhibitions and external projects. The gallery is the exclusive representative in Europe for important artists like Miao Xiaochun, Yang Shaobin and Yin Xiuzhen from China and recently included Micha Ullman, Miriam Vlaming, Radek Szlaga, Fides Becker and Andreas Amrhein in the gallery's program.
After having held galleries in Shanghai (2002/2003) as well as being one of the pioneers of 798 Beijing (2004-2008), Ochs opened a new space in May 2009, which he shares with Tian Yuan / WHITE SPACE, in the new Caochangdi Art District. For the inaugural exhibition, in the 1000 m² large exhibition space, works by Fang Lijun, Yang Shaobin and Liu Xiaodong were on view in correspondence with works by Damian Hirst and Anish Kapoor.
As something quite new Ochs started an artist-in-residence programme in one of the Studio Houses designed by Ai Weiwei in Caochangdi. The studio is available for the European artists in connection with their solo exhibitions at ALEXANDER OCHS GALLERIES BEIJING.
