Established in December 1999 by Nina Höke and Alexander Sies in Düsseldorf, the gallery has supported from an early stage on artists that radically question the concept of art using a variety of media and genres to express their state of mind. Over the years Sies + Höke developed a unique roster of artists central to conceptual art and contemporary painting. Known for its elaborate and exceptional exhibition projects, the gallery has built a strong reputation by comprising artists projects, public installations and institutional collaborations all over the world.
Sies + Höke’s gallery program launched with solo shows by artists such as Marcel Dzama, Federico Herrero and Florian Slotawa in the early 2000s and has helped to foster their impressive careers since then. Over the years German painters such as Jonathan Meese, Sophie von Hellermann, Andi Fischer and Ulrich Erben joined the gallery. Nowadays a new generation of artists has been included into the program that tests the boundaries of art in a more radical way by staging impressive expeditions, such as Julius von Bismarck and Julian Charrière, or by exploring the digital age in a new rendered world like Hedda Schattanik & Roman Szczesny.
Periodically, Sies + Höke also presents well-researched investigations of historical positions, showcasing work by artists such as Blinky Palermo, Gerhard Richter or Sigmar Polke and highlighting aspects of their practice in solo exhibitions or thematic group shows. Since the beginning, the gallery also runs its own publishing house, in order to support the artists with high quality monographs, historical surveys, artist books and exhibition catalogues.
Located in a listed building in Düsseldorf’s historic district, the gallery spans over 1.300 square meters. In 2013 Sies + Höke opened CAPRI, a non-profit exhibition space, in Düsseldorf’s Flingern district. The gallery regularly participates in several major international art fairs such as Art Basel, Art Basel Hong Kong, Art Basel Miami Beach, Frieze London and ART021.
