FELLINI Gallery was founded in 2008 in Shanghai, China by an award-winning film producer and art lover. Inspired by the works of the legendary Italian film director Federico Fellini, FELLINI is destined to be an art salon where artists and art lovers can gather to exchange ideas and inspire progress. Spread over four stories in a European style former residence in Shanghai's historic French Concession, FELLINI's exceptional location and dynamic roster of artists quickly brought it to the attention of the international art scene. The gallery's rapid success in Shanghai led to the creation of a second location in the new art capital of Europe: Berlin.
FELLINI Gallery's Berlin branch is located in the vibrant and multicultural Bergmannkiez in Kreuzberg, and maintains the spirit of the original Shanghai gallery by exhibiting breathtaking art in a vast, extraordinary space. FELLINI exhibits a wide range of work in the fine arts of painting, photography, sculpture, and performance as well as groundbreaking new media. FELLINI has strong connections to established artists and collectors in Los Angeles and China, while seeking to discover new talents in Berlin and internationally. FELLINI specializes in artist exhibitions and promotion, art consulting, interior design, and lease-sale programs.
FELLINI holds regular events and collaborates with museums, chambers, libraries, and other international galleries. Our attendees are collectors, artists, art lovers, critics, and experts from various creative industries.
FELLINI's goal is to dream, inspire and create.

Trance, day dreams and hypnosis indicate the immense diversity of psychological states, which present themselves to our consciousness in comparison to the daily wakefulness. In each of those states, reality is altered and interpreted in different ways, which is why different rules must apply. The shift in consciousness and persuasions of dreams allow for the exploration of those subjective inner worlds and their nature. This describes one of the general fundamental tasks of art.
For the exhibition, four artists from XTRO-Ateliers Schöneweide collaborated to bring forth METANOIA. From four different angles, the viewer is invited to explore the less familiar aspects of their inner self. Through the artists' creative powers and curiosity, the audience is guided towards an altered interpretation and fresh new model of reality. Only when the viewer's soul is permeated, only when we have been changed completely in our position and in our relationship to the surrounding world, has art truly accomplished its task.
