Renowned as the oldest gallery in Brussels, the Baronian gallery will enter its fiftieth year of activity in 2022, a date that will be celebrated next year in a very special way. Albert will pursue his eclectic and sensitive exhibition programme with the same passion that has carried him since his beginnings, supported by the contribution of Roland de Lathuy, who will be in charge of Private Sales at the gallery. Albert Baronian opened his first gallery in 1973 and immediately enjoyed international success thanks to the presentation of Arte Povera artists such as Alighiero e Boetti, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini and Gilberto Zorio. Later, as the president of the Galleries’ Association, he imparted a more international dimension to the Brussels Art fair. He considers the gallery's responsibility to be threefold: to work for the long term development of each artist’s career, acting as a liaison with international galleries and museums as well as placing works in collections; to create an historical archive for each artist; and to act as an accessible public space in which the exhibitions become an exemplary gesture of the power of subjectivity for a wider audience. The programme is devoted to contemporary art as well as important artistic movements and artists that have defined the last forty years.
