G Contemporary Art Gallery in Como

Unlike more traditional galleries, which have tended to avoid the high rents surrounding two of Paris’ most established art nexuses, G contemporary has found affordable space farther north.

Realist painters like Sharpe, Horowitz and Towers unpack our quotidian sense of life through narrative figurative paintings and still lifes. Genre diversity is wide.

About Us

g contemporary art gallery is an established contemporary art gallery located in Como. It is dedicated to introducing in Italy emerging and mid-career artists who are protagonists of the international scene, using the gallery as an institution and a platform – physical and virtual – to promote cultural exchange. A commercial gallery acts as a liaison between the artist and the public, often providing promotion and marketing to bring in collectors, and also absorbing some or all of the costs associated with an exhibition, including printing invitation cards, guidebooks, and other P.R. publications. Many galleries also provide a stipend to their artists.

About the Artists

Commercial galleries represent artists exclusively, giving them solo shows regularly and promoting their work by cultivating collectors, making press contacts and trying to get critical reviews. Some galleries also self-publish or help arrange publishing for art books and monographs about their artists. In addition, they sometimes provide a stipend or other financial assistance. G Spot Contemporary was founded by artist Jeff Gilbert and has since hosted exhibitions by Rubber: An Art Mob, Ramzy Telley, Bill Hailey, Cresandra Thibodeaux, Bryan and Jeff F. Wheeler, and others.

About the Galleries

g contemporary art gallery is comprised of leading galleries with exceptional programmes dedicated to presenting the best in modern and contemporary art. The gallery membership includes established powerhouses like David Zwirner, Lehmann Maupin and Spruth Magers, as well as a host of dynamic independent spaces from around the world.

For example, G Spot Contemporary in New York was founded by entrepreneur Garth Greenan to champion artists who are often underappreciated or overlooked. The space’s most promising emerging artists include Jess Xiaoyi Han and Yuan Fang, whose painterly abstractions captivate collectors with their bold visual impact.

Meanwhile, Seoul-based G Gallery is making a name for itself in the rapidly growing Korean art market with its tastemaking status and support for rising talent. This is evident in its Foundations presentation, which features abstract textile artist Hannah Woo’s pastel paintings alongside earth-toned works on paper by Raymond Hwang and the ethereal, figurative sculptures of Ye Cheng. The gallery also represents conceptual textile artist Wallen Mapondera.

About the Collections

The collection includes works in a wide range of genres such as landscapes, still lifes, portraits and nudes. It also features animalistic genres such as drawings and sculptures. Some of the works focus on meditations on light and shadow, and compression and expansion of space.

The gallery has been in operation since 2008. It is the successor to a space Mr. Gilbert and fellow artists in the Rubber Group co-ran, Gallery 101, described in the book Impractical Spaces: Houston Artist-Run Galleries, Occupied Warehouses, Co-operatives, Pop-ups, and Other Ad-hoc Venues (Radius Books, 2008).

Commercial galleries often choose to represent a particular artist or group of artists exclusively, giving them the opportunity to have solo shows regularly and helping promote them by cultivating collectors and making press contacts. Many reputable galleries absorb the cost of printing invitations to art openings and of distributing exhibition catalogs and other P.R. materials.
