Established in 1990 as the exhibition space of Temple Rome, the Gallery of Art has the mission to identify, research and display the works of art of local and international, emerging and established artists who work in the area of Rome. Our exhibitions reflect our interest in an open-minded vision of the art process, without preference for style, medium or format, analogous to our teaching mission as an American university campus abroad. And as a teaching gallery, our focus is to share our ideas with students and the public through clear and innovative programming. Our research mission as a university gallery leads us to search for new solutions among very young artists or to present known artists in new ways. Over the years we have forged relationships with other institutions such as commercial galleries, the Roman art academies, and with collectors and the art loving community.
The Gallery of Art occupies approximately 200 sq. m of space on the ground floor of the Villa Caproni, the Headquarters since 1966 of Temple University Rome. Divided into two rooms, with high ceilings, white walls and modern lights, this exhibition space has hosted hundreds of shows, performances, concerts and other events since its inception.
Gallery openings are frequent and provide a lively environment for students to meet others students and members of the art and local community. Click below to explore our exhibitions.
