Josefine Schulz (*1993) lives and works in Leipzig, Germany. In her artistic works she deals with the different realities of life in her generation and the visual influences on them. The motif of friendship is omnipresent: her protagonists, in larger and smaller groups, meet each other in everyday situations or retreat directly into their ‘four walls’, usually with a faithful companion in the form of a dog at their side. Schulz completed her MFA at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Dresden and has shown her work in Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig, Los Angeles, Osnabrück, Paris, and Milan, among others.

The third edition of Contemporary Art Now, which will take place from June 26th to June 30th, 2024, at FECOEV (Fairs, Congresses, and Events of Ibiza), is framed within a philosophy that drives the exploration of the boundaries of what is current and innovative. It is a space dedicated to discovering, integrating, and celebrating the freshest and most avant-garde artistic expressions, where art emerges as a force in constant reinvention.

What does it mean to exhibit art? How do you identify talent? And how does the market work at all?

Lætitia Gorsy is a passionate gallery owner of her own, still young gallery She BAM! in Leipzig's Spinnerei. Within this gallery, the Frenchwoman exclusively shows art by women to strengthen and redefine their role in the art market and also to make a passionate, long-overdue statement in the art world as a whole.

In 2018, she opened the smallest gallery on the Leipziger Spinnerei site, measuring 18m². There has been a lot of international resonance, extraordinary exhibition projects and recently even a second gallery address in Franz-Flemming-Straße. Since September 2023, Laetitia Gorsy has had a new exhibition space in the Spinnerei (180 m²).

The core of the gallery concept She BAM! is the exclusive representation of female artists. It defines itself as a large network, a platform for exhibitions and collaborations according to the principles of a classic, commercial art gallery. In addition, it supports female artists in the production of their works and all further steps of their careers. She BAM! believes in the importance of women creating spaces for other women, a continuity of sharing and a transfer of power, consistency and equality in the art market.

Anna Nero’s artistic practice revolves around exploring various painting techniques and the potential for image-making and representation. Her work navigates between strict geometrical forms and bold, spontaneous brush strokes, blending elements of structure and intuition. Nero often begins with systematic grids and patterns on her canvases, which serve as a foundation for subsequent layers of gestures and forms. Central to Nero’s inquiry is the transformation of paint into both object and space. She elevates the material to the forefront of her work, viewing it not just as a tool but as a subject with its agency. This approach is evident in her playful titles, such as ‘Strokes Trapped in A Grid’ and ‘Hostel’, which reflect her humoristic and ironic perspective. Nero enjoys incorporating references to art history in a postmodern fashion, adding a playful twist to her work.

Anna Nero earned her MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig in 2015, followed by post-graduate studies with professor Heribert C. Ottersbach. Her artwork has been showcased in solo exhibitions in the United States, Germany, and Italy and numerous group exhibitions worldwide. She is also involved in running the Frankfurt-based project and exhibition space MARS. In 2022, Nero was a guest professor at the Art Academy Mainz, Germany. Her pieces are featured in private and public collections across Europe and the United States, including notable institutions like G2 Kunsthalle, the Museum of Fine Art Leipzig, and the public art collections of various German cities. She is currently a guest professor at Burg Giebichenstein, in Halle.
