Founded in 2001, La Galleria was born as the small Venetian sister of the Galerie Dorothea van der Koelen in Mainz, which was brought to existence in 1979 by the when Dorothea van der Koelen was 19. Today she runs two galleries, a publishing house specialized in the history of art (Chorus Verlag), the “Van der Koelen Consulting” as well as the “Van der Koelen Stiftung für Kunst und Wissenschaft” (Foundation for Art and Science), located in Mainz.
In 2014, she founded the “CADORO – Zentrum für Kunst und Wissenschaft”, that has been designed to host the art collection of the foundation, and serves also as a research institution with a reference library.
The cooperation with roughly 30 artists from 15 different countries is not exhausted in the myriad of exhibitions and publications but also manifests in international exhibition management and global cooperation with museums and companies. Besides organizing outstanding art-in-architecture projects under the umbrella of the “Van der Koelen Consulting”, the “Van der Koelen Stiftung” arranges courses of lectures about Art History.
