OPEN WALLS is a unique and internationally renowned gallery space that focuses on Public Art. In addition to our actual commitment as a gallery, we offer services such as guided gallery tours and street art tours, as well as workshops and art consulting.
Elodie Bellanger and Guillaume Trotin are the French couple behind the OPEN WALLS idea. Former joint curators of the renowned West Berlin Gallery and the infamous Stattbad Wedding, they started OPEN WALLS in 2012. Back in September of 2010, the couple did their first show with the renowned street artist – Alias. This collaboration was very influential in their future decisions and gameplan design. A year later, West Berlin Gallery was closed and the entire program was refocused on Public Art, thus was founded OPEN WALLS Gallery. The idea started as an itinerant gallery, with no physical space at first, the whole project was operated online, on art fairs and pop-up shows around the globe. Quite rapidly, the business grew and it became too big not to have a showroom. After three years spent as part of the infamous Stattbad Wedding space, after its closing, OPEN WALLS Gallery moved to the new location in Berlin Mitte. Finally, a space suitable for the gallery’s growing business was established in one of the premium locations of Berlin.
