BISCHOFF/WEISS

BISCHOFF/WEISS was founded by Raphaelle Bischoff and Paola Weiss in 2005 to provide a platform for emerging artists with various practices to exhibit in London. The gallery offers a diverse and balanced program with sculpture, installations, video art, painting and photography. Initially based in East London, the gallery moved to Mayfair in January 2010, presenting new talent in contemporary art to a much wider audience.

The gallery also regularly includes curated group shows in its program which enables it to present a lively perspective on contemporary art practice and thought. The gallery has participated in numerous fairs including Frieze, Art Basel Miami Beach, FIAC, Art Dubai, Art Hong Kong and The Armory Show.

BISCHOFF/WEISS collaborates with museums and other commercial galleries to give its artists exposure outside London. It also publishes catalogues and books to provide a precise and rigorous context in which its artists can be viewed.

Press Releases

In 1956, Morocco regained its independence after over forty years as one of France's colonial protectorates. Meanwhile, in London, the prolific novelist and humorist P.G. Wodehouse was publishing yet another satirical farce: French Leave. Aya Haidar plays with these fortuitous associations in her piece Year of Issue (2013), which pairs the date of independence of 18 Middle Eastern countries with books printed the same year. Presented on an ordinary shelf, this idiosyncratic library is as poignant as it is tongue-in-cheek. For Jordan's independence in 1946, the artist selected Simone de Beauvoir's All Men Are Mortal, for Libya's in 1951, Alan Wilson Watts' The Wisdom of Insecurity, for Israel's, Graham Greene's The Heart of the Matter, out in 1948. With characteristic lightness of touch, Haidar probes into the nature of independence, self-governance, and freedom - a question rendered all the more pressing as the Middle East undergoes dramatic changes from Cairo to Damascus. The artist hammers her point home in the collage Covered Issue (2013), doctoring the titles on the book covers as if to free up another layer of meaning. All Men ... [ Read all ]
