Reopening of the New Albertinum in Dresden

After restoration and refurbishment, the new Albertinum reopens June 20, 2010. Presenting itself as a centre of art from the Romantic period to the present day.

The new exhibition halls are shared by the Galerie Neue Meister and the Skulpturensammlung. The holdings of both museums, with paintings ranging from Caspar David Friedrich to Gerhard Richter and sculptures ranging from Rodin to the 21st century, have an outstanding worldwide reputation. Huge glass-fronted display storerooms provide visitors with unprecedented insights into the internal workings of the museum and will open previously hidden works to view on a permanent basis.

Within the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden the new Albertinum constitutes a bridge between the past and the future. Whilst the exhibition rooms provide a large stage for the presentation of modern and contemporary art, paintings by both old and modern masters are simultaneously restored behind the scenes. The new Albertinum as a whole is designed for encounters between painting and sculpture, between the Romantic and the Modern, between East and West and between yesterday, today and tomorrow.
