Tanya Leighton is pleased to present ‘You Are Insatiable’, the first solo exhibition by Lucas Ospina (b.1971, Bogotá) in Germany.

7x2 is a special exhibition project during this year's Gallery Weekend in Berlin. On 3 May from 11 am to 6 pm seven young galleries invite an international or national partner to exhibit together on seven floors of the former House of Children on Strausberger Platz. Constructed between 1952 and 1953, the building was planned by architect Hermann Henselmann for the former showcase street of socialism, Stalinallee (now Karl-Marx-Allee) in East Berlin. Due to its representative design and its detailed interiors, this communist tower is today considered a unique example of Socialist Realism.

Tanya Leighton invites White Columns, who will present a newly commissioned work by the New York-based artist Trisha Donnelly. White Columns is New York's oldest alternative space, it was founded by the artists Jeffrey Lew and Gordon Matta-Clark. In 2009 White Columns' will celebrate its 40th Anniversary.
