- The Gallery
Located in the heart of Venice, in the beautiful fourteenth century Corte Petriana, near Campo San Polo, Beatrice Burati Anderson Art Space & Gallery opened on May, the 10th 2017 by the will of Beatrice Burati Anderson, art historian and curator, with the collective exhibition “Et in Terra” and the performance “Earth Exchange” by Gianfranco Baruchello. The 200 sqms space, definitely not a white cube, is situated in an ancient warehouse where the amazing six hundred years old wooden beams and the floor covered in sand create a suggestive atmosphere, keeping the charme and the traces of the past intact. Despite having two water gates facing the canal Rio de la Madoneta, just 30 metres far from the Grand Canal, and standing on one of the most frequented touristic paths in the city, the one that leads from Piazzale Roma to Rialto, the gallery represents an enchanting and unexpected oasis of quiet and peace.
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 are linked by a physical and symbolic dialogue through their respective water gates, which face each other. The entrance of this place retains an ancient Venetian atmosphere thanks to the suggestive terracotta floor and exposed brick walls, while the second room is white, clean and essential, suitable for the most delicate works.
On May 13, 2021 Beatrice Burati Anderson also inaugurated the Roman venue of the gallery, L’ATELIER, which stands in a historic space, full of memory, art and beauty: the former studio of the Italian artist Pilade Bertieri (Turin, 1874 – Rome, 1965), home to his archive and now open to the dialogue with contemporary artists and curators.
Beatrice Burati Anderson Art Space & Gallery is a research gallery that works with Italian and international artists of different generations and cultures, enhancing the performative and installative dimension. While maintaining a close relationship with the territory, the gallery strongly promotes the development of ethical issues and the connection between arts and science.
