Art in Dusseldorf

Overview of Dusseldorfs art exhibitions and museums

Museum Kunstpalast
Ehrenhof 4-5, 40479 Dusseldorf

With its numerous exhibitions and large collections, the Museum Kunstpalast represents an important part of Dusseldorf’s cultural life.  The museum’s collection includes paintings by Jan Frans Druven, modern art works by Otto Dix, impressive glass techniques, graphic collections of Kunisada and Kuniyoshi, sculptures, and applied art. Besides the art for the eyes, the Museum Kunstpalast also offers art works for the ears. In the large 800-seat Robert Schumann Hall, which is attached to the Museum, classical concerts, jazz festivals and comedy events take place. As a special attraction for families, friends or business partners, the Museum Kunstpalast offers exclusive group tours; for example, a tour is given of the repository and tours are even held outside of regular opening hours.

KAI10, Arthena Foundation
Kaistrasse 10, 40221 Dusseldorf
The gallery KAI 10 is focused on the newest, most current art, but also includes established more well-known artists. This is how the gallery’s work shows the thematic intersections and differences between generations. Following today’s artistic practices, the gallery’s exhibitions integrate various media and production methods. But the exhibitions’ most important element is their accompanying programme, which demonstrates the works’ clashes and reveals a better understanding of art history.

Art collection of North Rhine-Westphalia
K20 Grabbeplatz, 40213 Düsseldorf
In 1961, the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired altogether 88 works by Paul Klee, which form the foundation of the museum’s collection. During his tenure (1962 -1990), founding director, Werner Schmalenbach, assembled an exceptionally high-quality collection of classical modernist works, creating the sole regional collection of modern art in Germany. Schmalenbach’s successor, Armin Zweite (1990-2007), expanded the Art collection North Rhine-Westphalia, adding numerous works of contemporary art, as well as sculptural pieces.

NRW-Forum Culture and Science Dusseldorf
Ehrenhof 2, 40479 Dusseldorf
The NRW-Forum Dusseldorf presents changing exhibitions that challenge each subject within their cultural context. Exhibition themes include photography, media, fashion, communication, mobility and lifestyle. The NRW-Forum building is part of the protected courtyard ensemble, which was founded in 1926 according to William Kreis’ plans for the GeSoLei exhibition. The ensemble consists of a planetarium (now the concert hall), the State Museum of People and Economy, the art museum and the Rhine terrace.

Kunsthalle Dusseldorf
Grabbeplatz 4, 40213 Dusseldorf
The Kun­sthalle, a con­crete block built in 1967, is one of the most austere build­ings in Dussel­dorf, a now-rare ex­am­ple of “raw” ar­chi­tec­ture. Not mere­ly ex­ter­nal­ly dif­fer­ent from all of the oth­er mu­se­ums in Dussel­dorf, the Kun­sthalle's con­cep­tu­al di­rec­tion is al­so dis­tinct. Host­ing an ar­ray of ex­hi­bi­tions, but with­out its own col­lec­tion, the con­tem­po­rary art move­ments and po­si­tions, as well as their his­tor­i­cal and lo­cal points of ref­er­ence, were cru­cial to the Kun­sthalle's pro­gram from the time of its inception.

Museum Insel Hombroich
Minkel 2, 41472 Neuss-Holzheim

The Museum Hombroich is an art museum, located in Neuss-wood home. Detached exhibition pavilions and restored buildings are in renatured parks and meadows on the north bank of the Erft and draw this out. Under the motto "art parallel to nature” the museum is based on Paul Cézanne. Together with the rocket Hombroich it is supported by the Foundation Hombroich.

Langen Foundation
Raketenstation Hombroich 1, 41472 Neuss

The Japanese architect Tadao Ando has created an impressive architectural experience on the outskirts of Düsseldorf, in the cultural Hombroich. Since September 2004, the house of the Langen Foundation has been not only perfect for exhibitions, but also offered an exclusive environment for events.

Visitors can experience a fascinating interplay of art and nature, interior and exterior, light and shadow in an architectural masterpiece of glass, concrete and steel. Unmistakable is the unity between art, culture and communication, so unique and lasting impressions taken hours can be prepared.
