The concept of WOCA is to create a space that goes beyond the commercial aspect of a traditional gallery. “My goal is to break with the traditional gallery model, by integrating institutional and educational components, as well as the publishing and archiving of items within the gallery. As part of its educational agenda, the gallery will host art lectures by specialists in painting, photography and conceptual art; in addition to producing catalogues written by renowned local and international critics. “Furthermore, we want to develop alliances and partnerships with schools and art institutions, encouraging and motivating the next generation of local artists. My goal is that the gallery will become a facilitator for young artists into the international market, as well as to keep developing my roster of established ones.” said Walter Otero. WOCA will continue positioning its artists in the international market by participating in art fairs and special projects.
Walter Otero, has been working in the art world for approximately 15 years. He has extensive experience representing and managing many artists, helping them directly and indirectly, to find new opportunities to boost their careers.

He has managed to make Puerto Rico the new home of many important collections from celebrated artists including Anselm Kiefer, Nan Golding, Ana Mendieta, Doo Goo Sue, The Chapman Brothers, Bill Viola, Matthew Barney, Immendorf, Kara Walker, Julian Schnabel, Alex Katz, among many others.

Olu Amoda is an internationally celebrated Nigerian sculptor, muralist, furniture designer, and multi-media artist whose iconic work using repurposed materials and metal expresses the very best of modern African sensibility. Amoda was born in Warri in the Niger Delta in 1959 to his father, a goldsmith, with whom there seems to be evidence of some subtle interdependence of a ‘flaming’ strength drawn from the sole element of consanguinity apparent in the art of both father and son.

He has worked as an Artist-in-Residence in Villa Arson in Nice, France (2000), the Bag Factory in Johannesburg, South Africa (2003), at the Appalachian Statue University, in Boone, North Carolina (2006) and at the New York Design Museum (2010).
His work is housed in local and international collections including with the New Ark Museum in New Jersey, USA.. He has exhibited around the world, including at the Skoto Gallery and at the Museum of Art & Design in New York, at the Georgia Southern University in the United States, at the Didi Museum, Alliance Francaise, Goethe Institute & the Nimbus Art Centre in Nigeria, at the 6th Biennale de L’Art African Contemporain in Dakar, Senegal, at The World Intellectual Property Organization [WIPO] Headquarters, in Geneva, Switzerland, and with the current touring exhibition of “out of the ordinary” organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum in the United Kingdom.

Part of the Pushkinskaya 10 Arts Center, which has become the (un)official home of St. Petersburg's alternative arts scene, this ramshackle gallery is a must-see for anyone with an interest in the development of modern art in Russia. Housed in several rooms of this sprawling association of galleries, concert venues, and studios, the museum represents the most interesting aspects of independent art from the Soviet Union.
Much of the collection was donated personally by the artists, many of whom worked or still work with the Pushkinskaya collective. Official support from the State Russian Museum has helped to enlarge and formalize the collection, but it still provides a fascinating glimpse of the counter-culture in the post-war Soviet period.
Pushkinskaya 10 Arts Centre regular organizes tours in Russian and in other languages (English, German and French).
Location:10, Ulitsa Pushkinskaya (Entrance from 53, Ligovsky Prospekt)
Telephone:+7 (812) 764-5371
Open:Wednesday to Sunday, 3 pm to 7 pm.
Closed:Mondays and Tuesdays

The Galerie der Gegenwart (the Gallery of Contemporary Art) was established in 1997 as a new exhibition space for contemporary art in the Hamburger Kunsthalle. Designed by Oswald Mathias Ungers, the cube with its striking white sandstone facade occupies the first central museum location for contemporary art in the city of Hamburg. And with more than 5,600 square metres of space, it is one of the largest buildings for contemporary art in Germany.
The Galerie der Gegenwart’s numerous international exhibitions and extensive collection from Pop art to the present have made it an important attraction in recent years. The goal from the outset has been to present the Galerie der Gegenwart and its collection as a living museum that does justice to the constant changes and expansions of contemporary art – both in terms of diversity of media and with regard to socio-political issues. Varied thematic presentations of the collection, new acquisitions, and large special exhibitions always open up new perspectives, making the museum a dynamic place to encounter art.
The Galerie der Gegenwart features a number of artist’s spaces, several of which were specially commissioned to coincide with the gallery’s opening. These include Jenny Holzer’s Ceiling Snakefor the stairwell leading from the old building to the new one, Ilya Kabakov’s room Healing with Paintings, Richard Serra’s large-scale splashing work Measurement of Time / Seeing Is Believing and his wall drawing Spot On. Monika Sosnowska’s labyrinthine spatial structure in a side room should also be mentioned in this context, and Bogomir Ecker’s Tropfsteinmaschine (Dripstone Machine) extends in space and time across all of the building’s floors.
Since its opening, the Galerie der Gegenwart’s areas of focus have been systematically developed and expanded. Today it is able to present and explore the connections between the essential international developments in art since 1960, and most of the period’s important artists, with examples of major works. Painting since the 1960s is represented by the work of Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, and Georg Baselitz and Pop art by Andy Warhol, David Hockney, R. B. Kitaj, and K. P. Brehmer. Alongside central works of Arte povera by Jannis Kounellis and Mario Merz, Joseph Beuys’s work complex Plastisch/thermisches Urmeter (Plastic/Thermic Standard Meter) and Filzanzug (Felt Suit) are among the key pieces in the collection. An important focus is on Minimalist art and Conceptual art – supported by permanent loans from private collections – by artists such as Robert Morris, Sol LeWitt, Dan Graham, Donald Judd, Robert Mangold, and Hanne Darboven. The so-called ‘exit from the image’ – the renunciation in the 1960s and 1970s of traditional forms of painting and sculpture – is to be seen in the material art of Franz Erhard Walther and Reiner Ruthenbeck. Central positions in sculpture are represented by Thomas Schütte, Reinhard Mucha, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Cady Noland, Rosemarie Trockel, and Isa Genzken. The Hamburger Kunsthalle also owns one of the most important works by the American artist Bruce Nauman: the large video installation Anthro/Socio.
The museum began assembling a collection of photography in the 1980s, and its holdings are marked above all by the Düsseldorf school of Bernd and Hilla Becher, with photographs by the Bechers, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, Candida Höfer, and Thomas Demand, but also by works by American artists such as Jeff Wall and Ed Ruscha and a series by Gilbert and George. The theme of the self-portrait is explored in Andy Warhol’s Polaroids, Cindy Sherman’s Bus Riders and Nan Goldin, whose slide series captures the intimate moments of loneliness, drug use, sex and death in the era of Aids in the 1980s. In addition to photography, the museum’s outstanding media collection offers an overview of the history of video and media art, with more than six hundred works.
