The Kunsthalle Nuremberg shows temporary exhibits of contemporary art (from 1960 and later). The museum opened in 1913 in the Lorenzer Straße and was designated for Nuremberg and Franconian artists. In 1967, the museum was renamed the Kunsthalle Nuremberg and began to acquire a collection of German and international contemporary art. In 1997, this collection was given to the Neues Museum Nuremberg on permanent loan. The team of the Kunsthalle Nuremberg is well networked with many partners both within Germany and around the world. The gallery focuses today on retrospective shows of interesting young artists, exhibits about topics of current interest and influential artistic approaches from the 1960s until today.

The Kunsthalle will be closed due to construction works by end of February 2018 until spring 2019.
