Fabian and Claude Walter opened their gallery in Basel on March 20th 1986. Therefore, the gallery celebrated its thirty-year anniversary last year.
The gallery acts as a catalyst between contemporary artists, institutions and the public. Its exhibitions are based on a consistent conceptual program and on long term cooperation with artists. Furthermore, it focuses on getting involved with new media as well as innovative artists at an early stage.
So far, the gallery has staged over 200 solo and group shows, published catalogues and has participated since 1989 in international art fairs. Parallel to the exhibitions in the main showroom, the gallery has created a new form of exhibition titled Cabinet, in the context of which selected photographs from an expanded range in collaboration with independent curators are shown.
For over 20 years, Fabian & Claude Walter have been active as art consultants advising nationally and internationally active companies and collections on questions relating to the integration of art into existing buildings or buildings still under construction. They realise and organise architectural art projects and assist their clients in building up, developing and managing art collections.
