The Hochschule für Bildende Künste–Städelschule is pleased to open this year's graduate exhibition titled Medium Rare, curated by Alke Heykes.

This year's graduate exhibition Medium Rare includes works by 29 students from all seven fine art classes, and it will take place on two floors in a temporarily used office building at Untermainkai 27–28, directly on the Main River and near the Städelschule. The 29 artists, who describe themselves in ironic self-reflection and with reference to the “Frankfurt Kitchen'' designed by Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky in 1926 as "half cooked" after their education, will show new works including: paintings, sculptures, video, sound works, photographs, prints, drawings, installations, and performances.

With Minhyeok Ahn, Rasoul Ashtary, Rachel Ashton, Nooshin Askari, Jackson Beyda, Giulio Bonfante, Jack Brennan, Theresa Büchner, Juliet Carpenter, Tamar Chaduneli, Clyde Conwell, Rashiyah Elanga, Lydia Ericsson Wärn, Béla Feldberg, John Hussain Flindt, Alexis Gautier, Yun Heo, Evan Jose, Atiéna R. Kilfa, Sonia Knop, Sam Lasko, Jing Lin, Dominik Litwin, David Moser, Luis Polyanszky Worth, W. Rossen, Maximiliano Siñani, Robin Stretz and Alex Thake.

From the classes of Monika Baer, Gerard Byrne, Willem de Rooij, Judith Hopf, Hassan Khan, Tobias Rehberger and Haegue Yang and former professors Douglas Gordon, Peter Fischli and Amy Sillman as well as former guest professors Keren Cytter, Cyprien Gaillard, Sung Tieu, Wu Tsang, and former interim professor Nikolas Gambaroff.
