Magic Beans takes its name from the beloved children´s story “Jack and the Beanstalk,” which is full of symbols that we have translated to suit the meaning of our narrative. Using this story as a metaphor, our main goal is to support our artists by introducing them to prominent collectors and institutions, and to seek international opportunities for them so that they can continue to develop. We feel it is our responsibility to find artists we believe in and with whom we can develop long-lasting relationships.
Magic Beans was established in 2016 and focuses on contemporary painting, drawing, and sculpture from international emerging and established artists, such as Seungmo Park and the artist duo Abetz & Drescher. Magic Beans opened its doors in the well-known Auguststraße in the heart of Berlin in March 2016 with a diverse group exhibition featuring nine international contemporary artists. Since then, we have had twelve impressive and well-received exhibitions, and in 2017 we have participated in international art fairs such as Volta NYC, Mia Photo Fair (Milan), Volta Basel, and Contemporary Istanbul.
We are focused on building up a solid basis in the art world, and thus seek to establish constant and trustworthy partnerships, both with our artists and art fairs. We have been featured online by Artforum, Frieze, The Wall Street International, Berliner Zeitung, Interview Magazine, Art Observed, Berlin Art Link, Art Berlin, Art Magazine, Creator´s Project, Gallery Talk, The Culture Trip, No Mass Art Platform, Kunst Leben Berlin, Suitcase Magazine, and many more.
