Originally working in economy and active in art collecting, the couple Ivo and Franziska Kamm expanded with their gallery into the former premises of the Gallery Jamileh Weber in spring 2012. The showroom at Waldmannstrasse 6 is prominently situated in the heart of Zurich’s Old Town and in immediate proximity of the Kunsthaus Zürich.
An innovative programme is shown in the spacious rooms. The carefully selected and internationally already established contemporary artists are confronted with young, emerging artists. Intentionally various media and artists from different nations are featured and confronted with each other. With their focus on South American contemporary art the Gallery Ivo Kamm fills in for the leaving of the Daros Latinamerica Collection in Zurich. The large-scale solo and group exhibitions raise a highly intellectual, cultural and didactic claim and are deliberately allowed to provoke and scandalise at times.
The Gallery Ivo Kamm attaches a great importance to international art fair activity, exhibition publications, artist talks as with lectures held by important personalities from the art and culture world as well as a close and friendly exchange with customers and artists of different nationalities.

The Kunsthaus Zurich began with a small social group of artists and art lovers who began meeting regularly in 1787 for friendly discussions.
