Von Buren Contemporary is thrilled to present ETERNALLY PRE-RAPHAELITE, the gallery’s Christmas group exhibition inspired by the much-loved 19th-century English art movement.
With the participation of 24 artists and works ranging from painting, drawing and sculpture to photography, jewellery and textiles, Eternally Pre-Raphaelite hopes to show the enduring appeal of this radical group and the ways in which its style continues to influence artists today, both consciously and unconsciously.
We are delighted to announce the newly opened exhibition of gallery artist Lucianella Cafagna at Rome museum Palazzo Merulana (Via Merulana 121, 00185 Rome).
Sponsored by Von Buren Contemporary amongst others, the exhibition is one of the many events being held across Italy to mark the centenary of the birth of Italian director and writer Pier Paolo Pasolini. The show is entitled “Lucciole” or “Fireflies”. In 1972, just months before he was murdered, Pasolini spoke of the disappearance of fireflies in one of his best-known articles.
Meet Michele von Büren & the Von Buren Contemporary artists
Von Buren Contemporary is a dynamic, Rome-based gallery which specialises in the scouting and promotion of young, emerging Italian artists. Increasingly popular with clients and collectors and with a strong narrative bent, Von Buren Contemporary was recently named one of the top ten contemporary art galleries to visit in Rome.
Gallery owner Michele von Büren finds her thrill in the hunt and the discovery of new artists on the rise with something fresh and original to offer. Her ability to catch-and-release talent is critical to the success of her gallery and she has a demonstrated record for selecting artists with good investment potential.
A key gallery mission is to make contemporary art accessible and enjoyable. To this end, Von Buren Contemporary cultivates a warm approach and atmosphere, welcoming novice buyers with a limited budget, as well as more seasoned collectors with a keen eye for promising newcomers.
British-born Michele von Büren graduated from Oxford University in 1987 and subsequently moved to Italy, working first as a journalist before finding her niche in the art world.
