"A long way to go"

Double anniversary exhibition
35 years of Marianne Heller Gallery
30 years of Gruppe 83

Gruppe 83 was launched in 1983 with the aim of promoting contemporary ceramic art in Germany. Since then, it has organised countless national and international exhibitions, often involving invited guests.

Members of the group are not bound by any specific artistic concept – whether they create vessels or sculptures, what unites these individualists is their use of clay as an endlessly variable material. They are all members of the Académie Internationale de la Céramique in Genf, which, for the last thirty years, has functioned as the leading authority in this particular artistic field – the Mount Olympus of global ceramic art.

With its thirtieth anniversary exhibition entitled “A Long Way to Go”, this exclusive group, with its current 15 members, is presenting itself as part of a double anniversary celebration at the Gallery – an exciting prospect!
