Jahn und Jahn and Encounter are pleased to announce the opening of a new shared gallery space in Lisbon on September 22, 2022. This collaboration marks a significant international addition to the Lisbon art scene and is an extension of both galleries’ programs from the UK and Germany respectively. The gallery, comprised of seven exhibition rooms, two viewing rooms and a sculpture garden, will be located in a large 19th Century apartment on Rua de São Bernardo next to Jardim da Estrela and The British Embassy. The space has the ability to host several different exhibitions simultaneously which makes it an excellent venue for a dynamic gallery share model of this type.

For Jahn und Jahn, the new gallery space in Lisbon represents the first European extension of the established Munich based gallery. Originally founded by Fred Jahn in 1978, the close collaboration with artists mainly from Europe and the US, as well as a thorough understanding of forms of artistic expression, have been central to the identity of the gallery for decades. In 2017, the galleries of Fred Jahn and of his son Matthias Jahn merged to form Galerie Jahn und Jahn. Over the years, a large number of books have been published by both galleries, accompanying more than 500 exhibitions. Tim Geissler, partner at Jahn and Jahn since 2018, commented: “The possibility of making a gallery in Lisbon accessible to the public is a great opportunity for us. We see the possibility to expand our programmatic approach and to link it with a local community. The aim of this project is to bring in and experience new impulses. We are looking forward to the exchange, a wider network and hope to open up new perspectives in Lisbon.” Jahn und Jahn Lisbon will be led by Carolina Trigueiros. In her professional career, she has built up an extensive network with numerous projects in Portugal. In her function as the new Director of Jahn und Jahn Lisbon, she supports the gallery with her knowledge and great experience.
