If you’re looking to set up an art gallery, you can’t find a much more prominent spot then right opposite the Museum Brandhorst and around the corner from the Pinakothek der Moderne. You’ll be busy just soaking up the overflow of art junkies scouring that area. A photographer by trade, Jo van de Loo opened the gallery in 2011 with a curatorial focus on contemporary photography—a logical choice. Van de Loo believes in solid authorship of work, whether it be documentary or conceptual and this is reflected in his representation of artists like Paul Kranzler or Regine Petersen whose works have strong narratives behind them. The artists are encouraged to interpret their work along with other mediums, including video, sculpture and installation, so exhibitions here are more than a one-trick pony. Deliberately targeted at curators and collectors, if you’re thinking of a foray into the art collecting world, this could be a good place to start… Or to dream of starting.
