Galleria Lorcan O’Neill moves from its base on Via Orti d'Alibert in Trastevere to a new location on Vicolo dei Catinari in the centro storico.
Situated between the Jewish Ghetto and Campo de' Fiori, the converted Renaissance stables building will be Lorcan O’Neill’s principal Rome gallery and opens on 4 July with an exhibition of Richard Long, Jeff Wall and celebrated Italian artist Enrico Castellani.
The gallery complex comprises two exhibition spaces, viewing rooms and a private roof garden that will be used to display sculpture and installation work. In October British artist Eddie Peake exhibits at the gallery with a new body of work he will create in Rome over the summer.
Galleria Lorcan O'Neill opened in 2003 as a space for international contemporary art in Rome. The gallery works with influential artists including Martin Creed, Tracey Emin, Anselm Kiefer, Richard Long, Kiki Smith, Jeff Wall, Rachel Whiteread and Cerith Wyn-Evans, as well as with important Italian artists such as Emilio Prini, Francesco Clemente, and Luigi Ontani.
The gallery also supports a younger generation of artists including Manfredi Beninati, Pietro Ruffo, Eddie Peake and recently Prem Sahib, Juliana Leite, and Celia Hempton.
