The Shop: Books, Art and Pretty Things

The artworks, the atmosphere, the joy, the interesting and the special can also be taken home – on paper. In close cooperation with the respective artist, we produce elaborate catalogs and artist books, which are as individual in form and content as the corresponding artworks themselves. You can find more details about the layout, authors and texts below under the individual title.
In keeping with the Municipal Art Collection, which specializes in multiplied art, some artists also produce graphics or multiples so that we can offer them to visitors to Kunstpalais. So far, one of a kind 3D-printed sculptures by Florian Meisenberg, a cap with LED lights by Alona Rodeh, and prints by Grace Weaver and Vivian Greven are available here.
People who like art also like to surround themselves with beautiful things, as we know from our own experience. That’s exactly the reason why Kunstpalais has a curator-curated museum store with jazzy, eye-catching, unconventional things that we’d like to own ourselves or would love to give as gifts: Jewelry made from laser-cut Plexiglas or crocheted yarn from Japan, England, and Australia, fine leather cooking aprons from the Netherlands, plant planets and gem galaxies from Denmark, special pieces of tableware and vases from ancient times – and whatever else we are able to find.
Our books, prints, and multiples can also be ordered online; everything else can be found exclusively on our store shelves in Kunstpalais until further notice. For urgent repeat orders or desires awakened via our Instagram account – we will gladly try to send you these things as well. 
Purchases with a value of up to 100 EUR will be sent to you on account within Germany. For purchase values over 100 EUR we send the good immediately after receipt of a proof of payment.

Grace Weaver

The catalog was published on the occasion of the Exhibition Grace Weaver. O.K. at Kunstpalais from November 16th, 2019 until February 9th, 2020.

Grace Weaver (*1989 in Vermont, USA) is part of a young generation of artists who in recent years have breathed new life into the tradition of figurative painting. Her large-format oil and acrylic paintings picture the most banal aspects of life in the 21st century, and in that way, serve as an updated take on genre painting for our current moment, and specifically for her generation. Protagonists of her works can be observed indulging in acts of self-care or leisure activities such as dressing up, shopping, doing sports, or sometimes simply being absorbed by their phones. 
The accompanying publication is not only an exhibition catalog but Weaver's very first monograph. In it, the artists invites us to follow her protagonists over the course of one day – and simultaneously she provides insight into her painterly and graphic oevre of the past years. A special focus lies on her latest oil paintings which she produced for Erlangen and her solo show Little Sister, shown in parallel in Oldenburger Kunstverein. Texts by Amely Deiss, Malte Lin-Kröger, and Gertrude Wagenfeld-Pleister introduce the reader to Weaver's art and the charisma of her works. The authors Melissa Canbaz and Mitch Speed decipher her paintings with regard to color and the narrativs that are discernible in them.
