Founded in 1995, Galleria Raffaella Cortese is one of Italy's leading contemporary art galleries. Based in Milan since its conception, today the gallery is active with three exhibition venues on the same street, via Stradella. Raffaella Cortese is renowned for her rigorous exhibition program which focuses on critical individual, national and political identities, feminist issues, language and literature.Plan to visit Galleria Raffaella Cortese during your Milan vacation using our convenient Milan day trip website.
The gallery is well known and appreciated for the representation of 30 international established artists, especially women, working across different media, with a long-standing commitment to the promotion of photography, video, installation and performance art. Galleria Raffaella Cortese was one of the first galleries in Italy to show the works of a number of American women artists, who express an introspective and poetic vision of femininity and feminism. This constant and intense cooperation has allowed Galleria Raffaella Cortese to follow and nourish all aspects of these artists' researches and markets.
Through group and solo shows placed in the three exhibition venues at the same time, the gallery aims at creating a nurturing dialogue between the practices of different artists across generations and countries. This approach also informs the gallery's consistent participation to selected European and North American art fairs, with specially curated projects.
In a continuous and stimulating balance between research and experimentation, and thanks to its deep relationship with the represented artists, Galleria Raffaella Cortese, almost at its 25th year, is playing an active role in the city of Milan, collaborating with relevant local and national institutions, and adding to international artistic scene by promoting projects and exhibitions abroad.
Galleria Raffaella Cortese Reviews
Interesting, challenging, and experimental exhibitions from both longtime established and younger artists working across all mediums. The gallery’s three exhibition locations, all on the same street, give the opportunity for exhibiting artists to handle each space differently or for separate simultaneous shows.
