The Gallery Apart opened its first small exhibition space in Rome at Via della Barchetta 11 in February 2008. In December 2009, it moved to Via di Monserrato 40 and then, in March 2013, to the present wider space of Via Francesco Negri 43.
The main objective of the gallery is to support young artists in their research. A fundamental part of the gallery’s project and mission is to assist the artists in the realization of their projects guaranteeing a free outlet for their creativity from which the full range of their talent may emerge. This liberty also allows for spontaneity in their inclination towards adopting universal perspectives, therefore allowing them to converse on equal footing with the rest of the international artistic community.
The artists were carefully selected according to their ability to define research goals and to achieve artistic growth through the completion of fresh, original projects that are coherent with the individual artist’s creative path. The selection was also based on the artists’ personalities, which are expressed through their approach in joining conceptuality with a distinct aesthetic sense. As a result, this combination provides a large part of the stylistic character of the gallery.
The Gallery Apart is a direct descendent of a cultural project, which carried the gallery’s name and greatly benefited the gallery in terms of experience. Starting in October 2004, the project allowed for the production of a series of exhibitions which took place in spaces in Rome which were hand-selected to best meet the needs of the single projects. There is ample information available on this programming under the “outside” menu of the gallery’s website.
