It is 2020 and we are going back to our roots, creating and curating exhibitions and producing content, that align with our interests and questions.
wildpalms – derived from the book The Wild Palms (1939 by William Faulkner) – was founded in 2014 by Jorge Sanguino (COL) + Alexandra Meffert (DE) in Berlin as an experimental project and alternative model to explore a cultural production within and beyond the contemporary art system. As an open experiment at the intersection of private studio practice and public presentation, wildpalms strived to create unconventional and fluid forums for the public reception and consumption of visual art – revisiting exhibition models and creating new formats. It was designed to answer to the conditions within the art world, its expansion and complexity.
Art and culture are key elements of a healthy society and joyful life, but also allow for thinking and knowledge creation outside the usual pathways; the exchange and production of knowledge has now become the main focus. Next to our exhibitions that build on close work with artists and solid curatorial work, Art of the Americas is a special format giving voice to art professionals working in specific regions in North, Central and South America.
wildpalms has been developing through phases (chapters) along the way, marking changes in our work, approach, questions and research.
Our following credos:
1. putting art and matter back in the centre of the cultural work and helping to create sustainability.
2. the fundamental right of thinking the new.
3. pollination between local and global, through communication, exchange and collaboration.
4. art and culture as key forms for societies of the future.
wildpalms uses different approaches to address the function of exhibition and way of working and communicating with artists.
We opened our new permanent gallery space September 7th 2018 in Düsseldorf.
You will find us at:
Gerresheimer Str. 33, 40211 Düsseldorf

Furthermore, our curatorial projects are designed to happen in different spaces, cities, countries or continents. Meanwhile, the fair participations give us the opportunity not only for internationalization, but also to play with different formats of exhibition.
