Until November 21st, Gregor Podnar gallery presents They Endured, Marcius Galan’s new solo show. The opening happened during Gallery Weekend Berlin 2020, the event in which around 50 galleries open their exhibitions by young and established artists and welcome numerous visitors from all over the world to Berlin. On Gregor Podnar’s website, you can see some of the artist’s works and read a text about Galan’s production by Tiago de Abreu Pinto. You can find a selected part of it bellow:
