Canadian Artist Maya Beaudry's "Molding Between" will be featured in November at the Ashley Berlin Gallery. She is among the artists supported by the Embassy of Canada to Germany.

It's no secret that Berlin ranks highly among the world's cultural capitals.  Over the past couple of years, artists and creative types alike have been coming to Berlin looking to make their marks on the art scene.  The Embassy of Canada continues to do its part to help Canadian artists get their opportunity.

When most people think of art, they imagine grand galleries or museums. But in the coming months, the Embassy of Canada will work in conjunction with smaller, independent galleries in Berlin to present up-and-coming Canadian artists.
Berlin enjoys a significant contingent of smaller, progressive studios that provide an organic platform for artists to display their works.  These galleries have the distinct advantage of providing an intimate and customizable atmosphere which exemplifies the dynamism of Berlin's modern art scene.  They also provide a direct link between Canadian artists and German viewers.  Promoting this type of direct, cultural exchange is an important function of the Embassy of Canada because it builds bridges and leads to a greater mutual understanding between Canadians and Germans.

Ashley Berlin gallery features Maya Beaudry on Sunday, November 19,  the DAAD Galerie presents Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa from November 11, 2017 to January 14, 2018 and Spruth Magers is proud to host Jon Rafman until December 22.  These are among many other Canadian artists that will hold exhibitions with the assistance of the Embassy of Canada in the coming months.
