Galerie Fontana

Contemporary art

Galerie Fontana represents a distinct array of artists through a multiplicity of practices. The gallery was founded in 2011 and is permanently based on the Lauriergracht, Amsterdam. With an openness to all media, the exhibited content includes painting, sculpture, photography, installation and video art with a focus on emergent practices. We seek to show various artists positions guided by open and transparent principles. We maintain a strong personal connection with the artwork and artists. International in nature, Galerie Fontana’s exhibiting artists maintain a high level of craftmanship and material uses, within a contemporary discourse.

In addition to gallery shows, our principal raison d'être are temporary projects and pop-up exhibitions. We have occupied and shared spaces in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels and Paris. In the past, Galerie Fontana organized a large group exhibition in the Centre of Brussels on Avenue Louise, where we filled an 8-story building with all our main artists. We have been present at the international art fairs such as Art Rotterdam, Unseen, Positions Berlin, Ballroom Antwerp, Photo Basel... In the summer of 2015, we exhibited the work of the well-known Dutch photographer Jan Banning during the 56th Venice Biennale.

Our ambition is to bring together interesting people through art related projects around the world, and merge various networks. We represent both young upcoming artists, like Thijs Segers and Simone Hoang, as well as established names, such as Claudy Jongstra, Ruud van Empel, Carolein Smit, Jan Banning, Ronny Delrue, Robert Polidori, Jehoshua Rozenman, artist duo Feipel & Bechameil and Marchand & Meffre.
