- The Gallery

Located in the heart of Venice, two steps away from Campo San Polo, in the splendid fourteenth-century Corte Petriana, Beatrice Burati Anderson Art Space & Gallery was born on 10 May 2017 by the will of Beatrice Burati Anderson, art historian and curator. The gallery works with artists from different generations and cultures, emphasizing the installative and performative dimension, and promotes, while maintaining a close relationship with the territory, the development of ethical issues and the relationship between art and science. The gallery space, an unexpected oasis of peace along the most chaotic street in Venice, the one that leads from Piazzale Roma to Rialto, is located inside an ancient warehouse, where the tree trunks used as beams and the floor covered with sand create a suggestive atmosphere, keeping the traces and charm of the past intact. In September 2021 Beatrice Burati Anderson inaugurated in Calle de la Madonna the second venue of her Venetian gallery, complementary to the Art Space in Corte Petriana: the two spaces weave a physical and symbolic dialogue through their respective water doors, which face each other. On May 13, 2021, the Roman venue of the gallery, L’ATELIER, was also inaugurated in a historic space, full of memory, art and beauty: the former studio of the artist Pilade Bertieri (Turin, 1874 – Rome, 1965), home to his archive and now open to the dialogue with contemporary artists and curators.

Current exhibition

SI VIS PACEM / If you want peace

20/04/2022 - 24/09/2022

On April 20th, 2022, on the occasion of the pre-opening week of the 59th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, Beatrice Burati Anderson Art Space & Gallery responds to the drama of the present times by inaugurating a bi-personal exhibition curated by Adriana Polveroni, that compares in an unprecedented way the works of Ciriaco Campus (Bitti, Nuoro, 1951) and Italo Zuffi (Imola, 1969). Borrowing the title from the famous Latin phrase "Si vis pacem para bellum" ("If you want peace, prepare for war"), SI VIS PACEM asks, in the deliberate suspension of the sentence, an implicit question, which will remain open, to constantly solicit conscience: if you want peace - assuming you really want peace - what needs to be done?
