- InRoadsGalleria Ramo is pleased to present InRoads a series of short online videos, exploring the concept of identity through what it actually means to be a contemporary artist today. The videos are composed by a freelance curator or art critic raising one general question or quotation. It is then philosophically pondered via the reality of an individual artist`s perception. The idea is to create an online archive which allows us an insight into the thoughts and ideas behind an artist`s work. With

Founded by Simon David, Galleria Ramo opened with 'pop-up' projects in the small town of Lugano (Switzerland). As an initiative and by its founder, the gallery does not represent any of the artists but rather works on uniquely curated exhibitions. Galleria Ramo’s philosophy is a total commitment to artists and their creative endeavour through a curatorial programme of exhibitions and events that engage with the local community and with the changing language of the contemporary art world. Galleria Ramo specialises in contemporary art, photography, installation and video. In 2018 in Via Natta 31, opens as the project /exhibition space of Galleria Ramo in Como, Italy.
