THE POOL NYC was founded in 2009 to promote avant-garde artists through a network of international exhibitions.
Without an official gallery space, yet based in New York City, THE POOL NYC is everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
The necessity to be in one place and then quickly in another is a dominating influence in this century, and THE POOL NYC embraces that peripatetic nature.
The ease and speed by which information and humans travel around the globe allow for our constant changes in venue as well the opportunity to place the artists in dynamic surroundings.
Our itinerant nature facilitates the ideal presentation our artists as we seek out the most interesting and provocative spaces in which to present their work.Convinced of the efficacy of proposing its artists on the international exhibition circuit, THE POOL NYC inaugurates in June of 2009, a series of 5 solo exhibitions in Venice: Eteri Chkadua, Fabio Viale, Daniel Glaser/Magdalena Kunz , Andrea Salvatori and Tania Pistone.
Each member of the Italian team of THE POOL NYC—Luigi Franchin, Fabrizio Moretti and Viola Romoli—brings a unique vision and extensive gallery experience to the group.
Luigi Franchin, a Venetian with black belt in judo, a degree in Economics and a life-long passion for contemporary art, collaborated with Gian Enzo Sperone of Sperone Westwater gallery.
He now lives in Williamsburg, the artistic epicenter of New York.
Fabrizio Moretti burst onto Old Master scene ten years ago and has a sensational career specializing in Italian gold paintings. In 2004, the French Minister of Culture and Communication, Renaud Donnedieu Vabres, awarded Moretti the title, Chevalier de l’ordre des Art et des Lettres, and in 2008 he became the youngest member of the Board of the TEFAF, Maastricht. He now is extending his reach into the world of contemporary art. http://www.morettigallery.com/

She worked at Paula Cooper Gallery in New York, at Greta Meert in Brussels, and at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, until 2009 when she awarded the prestigious Hilla Rebay International Fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation and she worked in the Guggenheims of New York, Bilbao and Venice.
