Established in 2013 in Berlin, Galerie Rolando Anselmi is a contemporary art gallery with a research focus based around site-specific presentations. Seeking to expand upon its function as a dealer gallery, the programme supports creativity and the development of special and outdoor projects.Read More
While being broadly international in its selection of artists, the programme does have a strong Italian and German influence within its roster, framing itself as a place of exchange between the contemporary art scenes of these countries.
In 2016, further enhancing its position as a bridge between German and Italian contemporary art, Anselmi opened a new project space in his home-town, Rome. The small project room follows an independent direction from that of the main gallery in Berlin, focusing on new opportunities in relation to the specific environment of Italy—its location and contemporary art scene. Taking advantage of Italy’s unique settings, the gallery has held two major site specific projects beyond the gallery walls: The Hawt Show (2016, Borgo Colle Melone, Atina), and Palko (2019, Castello di San Basilio’s Chapel, Pisticci).
In 2020 a new headquarters with fully integrated office, storage and exhibition spaces will be opened in Rome.
Since its inception the gallery has worked with a diverse range of artists from Europe and beyond—some temporarily, and some on a more long-term basis. The gallery represents 11 artists, including German artists Valerie Krause and Johannes Wald, who have been stalwarts from the beginning. The gallery also represents several Italian artists, including established names such as Gianni Pellegrini, Arcangelo Sassolino, and Gianni Caravaggio, and emerging talent such as Guglielmo Castelli. These names are accompanied by an international roster including Ewa Juszkiewicz from Poland, Argentinian artist Santiago Taccetti, English artist Jodie Carey, emerging Danish artist Asger Dybvad Larsen, and prominent young Chinese artist Li Gang.
Maintaining a strong presence on the international art scene, the gallery participates in several major art fairs across the globe, including NADA Miamiadrid; ARCO Madrid, ARCO Lisboa; Artissima, Torino; ART-O-RAMA, Marseilles; Material, Mexico City; Miart, Milan; Art Brussels and Art Cologne.

A new exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris is challenging notions of Chinese contemporary art. Without a Mao-inspired or Cultural Revolution stylistic cliché in sight, the eclectic collection of works by five young "emerging" Chinese artists, presented alongside works by three French counterparts, in "Inside China"...
