Martina’s Gallery was founded by Martina Corbetta & Stefano Bergamaschi in 2015, set at first in Seregno (Monza Brianza – Italy) at Corte del Borghesan.
Art Dealer, Art Critic and Curator, after several collaborations with Galleries, magazines and artists in the contemporary scene, Martina decides to set up a private gallery to deal with Italian and foreign artists following her passion for visual arts through her street-rooted pop taste toward painting.
She combines her brokerage skills with artists, sales ability with customers, and a new very important side of her life: travels, which allow her to find fresh and international artists and bring them to the Italian artistic panorama.
Since the opening, Martina’s Gallery curated a variety of Exhibitions: The Cover Man, Lucas Beaufort’s first personal Exhibition / Instinct, Alberto Monti’s solo show/ Street Memory an artistic festival in Seregno’s plaza with Enrico Cattaneo, Francesco Penci and Sem/ Nest, an exhibit with Elisa Bertaglia and Anna Turina / Tigre contro Tigre by Michela Picchi, curated by Rossella Farinotti.
Martina has partaken in the freshest fairs in the Italian contemporary art scenery like The Others (Turin 2014, Naturalized displaying Elisa Bertaglia, Francesca Manetta, Ryan Contratista and Monia Ben Hamouda; Turin 2015, Freedom displaying Lucas Beaufort, Elisa Bertaglia and Michela Picchi), SetUp (Bologna 2014, The Nature of things, displaying Bros, Davide Genna and Ryan Contratista; Bologna 2015, Nei luoghi dell’essere displaying Lucas Beaufort, Elisa Bertaglia and Eracle Dartizio where Elisa Bertaglia won the Prize Casa Falconieri di Bilbao in the category Best Painting.
In March 2016 the gallery participated at Affordable Art Fair in Milan with Internationally renowned artists such as Stikki Peaches and Pure Evil.
In May 2016 Martina arranged the very first anthological exhibition for Laurina Paperina in the Milanese Hinterland: Mix-tape curated by Rossella Farinotti. The show displayed more than 60 artworks of the Italian artist.
Toward the end of 2016 Martina closes the year with The Others Art Fair in Turin introducing a collective art-show displaying the American artist Dain for the very first time in Italy. During the 2017 the Gallery takes part to Set Up Art Fair in Bologna, Drawing Room Art Fair in Madrid and Affordable Art Fair in Milan.
