Julian Charrière, Horizons at Dittrich & Schlechtriem, Berlin. 
 
Open from Tuesday till Sunday 11am till 6pm. 
 
Dittrich & Schlechtriem is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition, HORIZONS, the first solo-exhibition of works by Julian Charrière. Charrière has described HORIZONS as an oasis for urbanites who yearn for a glimpse of nature. It may be suggested, however, that he is exposing the oasis that already surrounds us. It is the revelation of the obscured, a reversal of the illusion: Charrière erases the visible, leaving only the invisible to be seen. In Charrière's works we see time progressing, we see the mountain ranges on our doorstep, we see the forests covering our cities.

Private View on 15th from 6 till 9pm. Open daily from the 16th of September to the 5th of November.
 
Lisson Gallery Milan is pleased to announce a group show of ten Lisson artists, curated by Ryan Gander. The exhibition marks the opening of Lisson Gallery’s new space in Milan, bringing its international programme directly to the Italian contemporary art scene for the first time.
