Gallery, Room Concepts, Events and more
MVP’s activities include representing international contemporary artists in the fields of painting, video, installation and sculpture. Drawing on their ‘moving gallery’ concept, they also curate pop-up art exhibitions and events. These are held in spaces as diverse as theatres, private homes, industrial spaces and historical wharfs.
Hosts may rent artworks to furnish these locations. Many open a dialogue with such one-of-a-kind creations, frequently going on to purchase their favourites. These exhibitions may include an exclusive dinner allowing both the artists and collectors to connect. Private studio tours can also be arranged.
Born and raised outside of Cologne, Germany, MVP founder Marie von Papen has since made her home in Berlin, Portugal, France, the US and the UK. Over the course of her career, she has trained in art and business with Sotheby’s, assisted world-renowned artists and worked in several of the world’s leading galleries. As an artist herself, von Papen’s background offers her the unusual dual understanding of both the artist’s perspective as well as that of the collector.
