Galleria Continua / Rome


Galleria Continua / Rome

Galleria Continua, listed amongst the most predominant art gallery in the world, was founded in 1990 in San Gimignano (Italy) with the mission to give continuity to contemporary art in a landscape rich with the signs of ancient art.

Occupying a former cinema, Galleria Continua established itself and thrived in an entirely unexpected location, away from the big cities and the modern urban centres, in the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, steeped in history. With time passing by, it grew and thrived opening new sites and exhibition spaces around the world, from Beijing in China, to Les Moulins - in the Parisian countryside, and La Habana, Cuba.

In 2020 it established a new official location at The St. Regis Rome.

Loris Cecchini

10 November 2018 – 3 March 2019

On the occasion of the unveiling of a meticulous full restoration of The St. Regis Rome, the calendar of Galleria Continua’s exhibitions was inaugurated by the unique collaboration with Loris Cecchini with 4 site specific installations for the space.

The fil rouge of the oneiric, which has been the hallmark of the relaunch celebrations of the new St. Regis Rome, is well represented by the work of Cecchini, who plays in mixing the perceptions of the viewer to stimulate his imagination.

24 May 2019 - 13 October 2019

“Jungle Fever”, the solo exhibition by Pascale Marthine Tayou, was hosted throughout the public spaces of The St. Regis Rome. The hotel became the ideal setting for the exhibition of pieces by an artist who has made the theme of the journey and the enrichment that derives from it, the core his stylistic code, combining references to African origins and features of his current European experience.

“Maturation” - José Yaque

23 January 2020 – 28 March 2020

“Maturation” presents pictorial, vibrant and material works as well as an installation from the Tumba Abierta series composed of natural elements in a process of transformation. For “Maturation”, Yaque works on canvas exclusively with his hands to mix colors, spreading them to create a magma-like surface. The installation from the Tumba Abierta series is a sort of archive undergoing a process of transformation, allowing a vision on natural elements and how they transmute through time.
