Its international exhibition programme reflects a variety of approaches, a diversity of mediums, as well as Leighton’s associations with American and British experimental cinema, performance, minimal and conceptual art.
\n\nSince opening its second location in Berlin in 2015, the gallery has consolidated its position as one of Berlin’s foremost representatives of international contemporary art. Solo exhibitions by established and emerging artists intersperse with conceptually motivated projects and group exhibitions. The gallery aims to recontextualise historical frameworks and practices, bringing marginalised figures back into focus. Gallery exhibitions have presented or restaged historical works by artists such as award-winning British avant-garde filmmaker John Smith; feminist artist Marianne Wex – whose pioneering project in photo-conceptualism is now held in the collection of MoMA, New York; Chinese-American painter David Diao, who was recently the subject of a retrospective at UCCA, Beijing; amongst others. In dialogue with the historical programme, Tanya Leighton produces and exhibits contemporary work by artists from around the globe, including Austria, Britain, Canada, China, Colombia, Czech-Republic, Germany, Guadeloupe, Slovenia, Switzerland, Uruguay and the United States – among them Math Bass, Pavel Büchler, Alejandro Cesarco, Aleksandra Domanović, Sharon Hayes, Sanya Kantarovsky, Oliver Laric, Jonas Lipps, Elizabeth McIntosh, Oliver Osborne, Dan Rees, Jimmy Robert and Van Hanos. The gallery’s artists are regularly invited to stage solo exhibitions as well as being included in important group exhibitions at museums and public institutions worldwide
