Founded in October 2010 by Rosario Caltabiano, gallery 22,48 m² strives to be a unique exhibition space and a venue for the diffusion of contemporary artworks within the international art scene. Since its opening, the gallery has organized and produced nearly 50 exhibitions: monographic shows dedicated to the artists of the gallery, or thematic exhibitions featuring other artists. Open towards new technologies they are all marked by a critical engagement regarding the evolution of contemporary art.
In collaboration with curators, critics and artists, 22,48 m² proposes a multidisciplinary program: apart from its regular exhibition program, the gallery organizes performances, screenings, round-table, debates, presentations of selected artworks, and activities dedicated to children and families, led by artists themselves, or by specialised animators.
Therefore, Gallery 22,48 m² focuses mainly on activities linked to critical, cultural, and pedagogical fields, bringing today’s art and public together. Through its innovating lines of research, it also tries to reflect a new vision of an art gallery and, in this sense, acts like a key player within the latest generations of galleries in the art market.
22,48 m² also gives priority to specific and innovating work regarding publishing: 22,48 m²’s catalogues and publications are developed and designed both as spaces for autonomous thinking and as a tools that echo the exhibited works.
As an active member of the gallery network «Grand Belleville», 22,48 m² has already taken part in the Parcours VIP of the FIAC every year since 2011, in NUIT BLANCHE (Paris 2013), in the Biennale de Belleville (Paris 2014) and in several fairs such as ART-O-RAMA (Marseille 2013, 2015), YIA (Paris 2013), DRAWING NOW (Paris 2014, 2015), LOOP (Barcelona, 2014, 2015), ARTISSIMA (Turin, 2014, 2015, 2016), ART BRUSSELS (2015, 2016, 2017), FIAC-(OFF)ICIELLE (Paris, 2015),
PAREIDOLIE (Marseille, 2017) and ART ROTTERDAM (2017).
22,48 m² wants to be a space of openness, favorable to exchanges and reconciliation between contemporary art and the public.
