The Galerie Hans Mayer was founded in 1965. The gallery achieved international renown in the 1960s through exhibitions of representatives of Op Art and contemporary constructive tendencies up to kinetics. From 70s to 90s the program was constantly expanded. In 1969 Hans Mayer showed Andy Warhol for the first time in Düsseldorf, and in 1989 the collaboration with Nam June Paik began. Americans such as Frank Stella, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Tom Wesselmann joined them, followed by representatives of the younger generation such as Keith Haring, Michael Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, Robert Longo, Bill Beckley and Tony Oursler. German painting is represented by Markus Oehlen and C.O. Paeffgen, photography by Peter Lindbergh and Jürgen Klauke. Contemporary European and American art are focal points of the gallery program.
