Gallery Statement

Croy Nielsen was founded in Berlin, Germany, by Oliver Croy and Henrikke Nielsen in 2008. Since 2016 the gallery is located in Vienna, Austria. The program and speech of the gallery was born from the collaborations with artists such as Nina Beier, Mandla Reuter, Benoît Maire and Marie Lund. In the last two years, younger artists like Olga Balema, Georgia Gardner Gray and Sebastian Black have become an important part of their program. Likewise, the gallery represents the Heritage of Albert Mertz (Denmark, 1920 - 1990).
