heliumcowboy Founder Jörg Heikhaus (image right) was invited to be the host at the store for the month of December, and under the programmatic title #heliumcowboytakeover he's put together a program of live-art performances and exhibitions as well as panel discussions and artists talks.
Earlier this year Alex Diamond has been invited by celebrity chef Stefan Marquard and by Geberit, the european market leader in sanitary technology, to develop and execute an artistic concept for the luxurious bathroom facilities of Marquard's new restaurant called 'Hase & Igel'.
We are looking forward to a very special exhibition, opening September 13, at a temporary space in the beautifully restored Holstenhof (right around the corner from our gallery, take a look at it here):
Victor Castillo pays us a visit this fall and teams up with our very own Alex Diamond for a long awaited double exhibition by these artists.
Here are the dates:
Exhibition from September 13 - 27, 2014
Opening Reception September 13, 7 - 11 pm
Opening hours during the exhibition will be announced soon.
We are also a partner of Reeperbahn Festival (check this link) and will hold another public reception on Wednesday, September 17, from 7 - 11 pm.

It's about time we are closing up this year ... it was a rush and a kick, once again, it was tough and beautiful and just another rollercoaster ride, and everyone here at the Ranch and affiliated with us deserves a time out for the holiday season ...
We'll be at the gallery until Friday, Dec 21st, and after that only occasional and by appointment, if you are interested in seeing some of the artwork we are showing right now at PSYCHONOISEDESIRE, or hold on to in our storage. Drop us a mail!
And most importantly: Enjoy your Christmas!
this is our last and final event this year: Saturday, December 15, from 1 - 7 pm, we'll invite you to the Finissage of our current exhibition PSYCHONOISEDESIRE, featuring 3 more or less individual shows with new work by Jo Fischer (PSYCHO), ADAMEVA (NOISE) and Alex Diamond (DESIRE).
Over the past 10 years, it has been our custom here at heliumcowboy to invite you all over for some complimentary Glühwein & Cookies before Christmas. So if you are in town, and want to see the exhibition one last time in its complete state, or just want to grab a last drink with us before leaving for your well deserved holiday celebrations, drop by on Saturday!
Looking forward to seeing y'all there!
