ABOUT GR GALLERY
Born in the mid-seventies in Sacile, Italy, GR Gallery focused its activities on the promotion of European and South American post-war avant-gardes, prioritizing artists particularly active during the triumphs and the eclipse of the Art Informel Movement. In the nineties and forward, GR Gallery aimed to the rediscovery and re-launch of the newest vanguards: the movements of Kinetic and Programmed Art. GR was a bona fide trailblazer in the art world panorama promoting artists who, in the third millennium, critics and the market will enthusiastically recognize. GR Gallery’s New York branch will carry forward in the U.S. its Italian sister’s gallery mission.
