Contacts & Details
A plus A | Gallery is operating in Venice since 1998 and is one of the first transnational forums dedicated to the promotion of Slovenian contemporary art. It has been the seat of the Slovenian Pavilion at the international Venice Biennial until 2013.
Directed by Aurora Fonda A plus A gallery has become a meeting point for Slovenian, Italian and international artists, the local youth and the rich international community always passing through Venice. In almost twenty years A plus A has produced, promoted and realized numerous events related to contemporary art research, in collaboration with major local, national and international entities.
A plus A has been always supported and recognized by Slovenian institutions, primarily the Slovenian Ministry of Culture and by all major city institutions such as the Venice Biennial, IUAV University, Ca’ Foscari University, the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, and the Venice City Council.
The experimental schedules of the galleries exhibitions range from well known artists to Audio-Video performance and urban installation. A plus A has been invited by the City of Verona and the Verona Art Fair to conceive every year an exhibition devoted to contemporary art from the most promising talents of former Eastern European countries. This scope of our activity has enabled us to involve a gamut of artists and partners, allowing our Gallery to have become the principal forum for contemporary and experimental research in the city.
A plus A has hosted the Toolkit Festival – dedicated to interactive art, events and show about independent publishing and artist books, Concrete landscapes – sounds events and experimental music. As a result, we cover a broad range of public and press, soliciting interest from both general and specialized audiences.
