Campo del Ghetto Nuovo, 1996: one shopwindow, floodlit, with one painting, the hyperrealist portrait of Andy Warhol painted by Luigi Rocca.
A man is a bundle of relations, a knot of roots, whose flower and fruitage is the world.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Campo del Ghetto Nuovo, 1996: just one window, floodlit, with just one painting, the hyperrealist portrait of Andy Warhol painted by Luigi Rocca. It opened this way, without grand openings nor press releases, the very first contemporary art gallery in the jewish district of Venice.
In twenty years of activity in the historic jewish district, we’ve been meeting thousands people, whom are still keeping in touch with their visits, the social media and our newsletter, which every three months updates them about our news and our Artists’s artworks.
Unique representative of the artworks of Luigi Rocca, one of the most loved and appreciated hyperrealist Painters, we also exhibit the paintings of other Italian and international contemporary Artists’s, both accomplished and novice. Besides original artworks, we also sell reproductions on canvas, both limited and unlimited editions, authenticated and signed, of some Artists.
Among the exhibitions we organized and mounted: Luigi Rocca’s personal shows in San Donà di Piave (Venice) in 2004, at the Jewish Museum of Venice in 2004, in San Diego (USA) in 2005, at our Gallery in 2006 and in Udin in 2007; the group show “Venice – Views on Ghetto” in 2005 in Venice – Jewish Museum and Midrash Leon da Modena, Tel Aviv – Residence of the Ambassador, Haifa and Jerusalem – Italian Art Museum; the group show “In the space of the Cross” mounted in 2010 in Venice at San Salvador Church and San Rocco Church, the group show “As Time Goes By” in 2015.
After a fortunate period of exhibition in Campiello San Tomà, we were back to the Ghetto, where we are celebrating our 20th Birthday.
Our Gallery is connected to Melori & Rosenberg publishing company, which published monographies and the catalogues of the shows over the years.
