About the Exhibitor
z2o Gallery was established in October 2006 by Sara Zanin, located near the Colosseum. In February 2012 the gallery made its move to its current space in via della Vetrina 21, near Piazza Navona. From the beginning, the gallery proposed a program based on the research and promotion of young artists that, for their usually site-specific projects, use various mediums, such as painting, photography, video installation, performance, etc. z2o Gallery has established itself in recent years through its intense program, frequent participation in art fairs and thanks to prestigious international collaborations with major national museums, by means of loans in works and collaborations in exhibition projects.
