Video auf YouTube

On June 8th, 2021 Dorothea van der Koelen's La Galleria in Venice turned 20! On September 17th, the gallerist, publisher and benefactress will celebrate this special event with an extraordinary themed exhibition: Milestones in which she will present some significant ›milestones‹ that have shaped the successful and exciting history of La Galleria, with works by the gallery's top artists: Lore Bert, Daniel Buren, Gottfried Honegger, Mohammed Kazem, Joseph Kosuth, François Morellet, Fabrizio Plessi, Arne Quinze, Turi Simeti, Günther Uecker, Guang Yao Wu.

In 2001 she was able to make her dream come true. Thanks to the agency of a great artist from the gallery, Fabrizio Plessi – also a Venetian by choice – Dorothea van der Koelen found the perfect home for herself and her art projects in the Serenissima. Located directly behind the Teatro La Fenice, not far from Palazzo Grassi, Accademia and Rialto and only a few minutes from St. Mark's Square, La Galleria has established itself over the past 20 years as one of the most important and respected meeting places for prominent artists, Biennial visitors and art lovers from all over the world. And that is by no means a matter of course. Thanks to her commitment, her ideas and her intuition, Dorothea van der Koelen was able to present her audience with unique exhibitions by renowned artists, as well as works by young, promising talents, and that even before they had risen to the Olympus of the international art scene.
