Current Exhibition

Heavy Metal. Erntedank

Straight from the Academy

Opening: September 20, 2018
Exhibition: September 21, 2018 - October 07, 2018

Our late summer is going to be loud. Wild, bright and contemplative. Funny – and uncanny. Overwhelming! With the group exhibition "Heavy Metal. Erntedank" we have fulfilled one of our dreams. We give space and light to the artists whose works have caught our special attention in recent years at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg.


These (ex-)graduates and students from the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg completely occupy the eleven rooms of the Kunstpalais and shape them entirely in their respective individual handwriting. There is painting, sculpture, installation, video and photography - fashioned in such an extensive way that you get the impression to go from one artist's head into the other. The connecting element of the selected artists (and artist duos) is - apart from their origin from the AFA Nuremberg - solely their diversity.

Heavy Metal Erntedank is the supernova among the Kunstpalais exhibitions this year – visible only for two and a half weeks but shining like an entire galaxy.
