The specific focus of Podbielski Contemporary is to promote contemporary photography in its various declinations. Over the course of its ten-year existence, it has gained worldwide recognition among collectors, peers and institutions. The emphasis of the program is on representing a wide range of artists, dealing with the geopolitics of the Balkans, the Middle East, Italy, Germany and new territories in a transcultural and artistic perspective.
Pierre André Podbielski founded Podbielski Contemporary in January 2011 in Berlin Mitte. The opening show “Moving Worlds” with Yael Bartana, Adrian Paci, Paola Yacoub, Lidwien van de Ven and Danica Dakic and was introduced with an essay by Griselda Pollock.
In 2018, Podbielski Contemporary moved its location back to Milan, his hometown. The gallery aims to promote exhibitions, encourage collaborations with colleagues, curate and produce exhibitions with public institutions and introduce its artists to private and museum collections. The founder is convinced that, in addition to representing artists and promoting their works to the fullest, a gallery should also serve as a hub for the exchange of ideas about art and culture, especially for young scientists and collectors.
More recently, in its new location, due to the rigors and travel restrictions of 2020/21, Podbielski Contemporary has strengthened its focus by promoting established Italian artists, as well as launching promising new talents, featured in our recent group shows such as ‘Pleasure Garden’ and ‘Ore Sospese. Un diario italiano en Oltre lo Sguardo’.
While Podbielski Contemporary consolidates 4 to 5 shows a year, he attends qualified art fairs from his first participation in The Hours in Turin (2011), to Photo Basel, MIA photo fair, Artefiera Bologna, Unseen, Artissima, Photo London, Artgeneve to Paris Photo (2021).
