There was once a horse named Ribot, and although he did not have the build for racing, he nevertheless became a champion in the past century. “He is the good luck omen for my artists” explains Monica Bottani, the founder of the Ribot Gallery in Milan. On a hot summer afternoon we visited the gallery in the Citta Studi area, not far from the famous Bar Basso.

We became acquainted with Sophie Tappeiner’s gallery at the 2018 edition of Miart, Milan’s modern and contemporary art fair, where she was awarded the LCA Prize for the best booth in the Emergent section for her solo exhibition of Angelika Loderer. Marking her first participation in an art fair, it was a flawless presentation. This is the story of her up-and-coming gallery.

"Cairo is an enormous and sprawling metropolis. When Gypsum opened in 2013, the model of the international commercial art gallery did not exist in Egypt. There is an audience for progressive and challenging work but the market is extremely conservative." Aleya Hamza

Today #Engadin might be better known as a luxurious skiing resort, but the region actually is known also for its cultural and artistic tradition. In fact, Hermann Hesse, Thomas Mann, Friedrich Nietzsche, and of course Giovanni Segantini and the Giacometti family are associated with the area. Contemporary art is also spreading quickly in the region, with new boutique fairs for art and design and international art galleries opening branches to lure the rich tourists. But one gallery is deeply rooted in the local tradition, Stalla Madulain, founded by two young men in the small village of Madulain.

It is an attempt to prove to ourselves that we have the capacity to show progressive and up to date contemporary art for the public and still connect internationally. It is a very hard work as it is funded completely independently, and not by the government.“ Margit Valkó

A gallery deeply rooted in the #Cologne art scene, striving to continue the fruitful artistic exchange that took place between the Rhine city and New York in the 1960s and 1970s. In this interview Berthold Pott told us about his program, about the state of painting today, and about his strategy to success as a mid-size gallery in the global art world.

"I’m searching for a model that allows us all to develop healthily, but at our own pace — one that’s based on mutual respect, trust, and enthusiasm, not obligation." Brett William Schultz

"Each of the artist's has been chosen to complement (even to contradict) the others and hence to broaden Sabot’s definition of contemporary art. I don’t believe in conformity and uniformity and I’m not looking to prove my own taste by making equal, predictable choices.“ Daria D. Pervain

"What I find most interesting is how you can think about galleries aside from their purely commercial function. The fluidity of programming, reacting to artists’ needs much more quickly than in an institutional setting, working so closely and intimately together, forging alliances and friendships with artists, creating a multidisciplinary educational program around the shows we build are the most important aspects.“ Laura Windhager
