Joya: arte + ecología / Margherita Rossi / Staff
Margherita Rossi has joined Joya: arte + ecología from London, to work as our Project Developer.
Margherita grew up in the art world between Venice and Munich, between Vicenza and the mountains of South Tyrol. After completing an undergraduate degree in the Economics of Art at the Univeristà Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milano, she moved to London.
Margherita worked at Sotheby’s in the Impressionist and Modern Art department as a Cataloguer and Researcher, and she has continued to explore private collections of international art-dealers, as well as artist studios and galleries.
Her increasing involvement with contemporary art allowed her to take an opportunity as a Gallery Assistant at Hauser & Wirth. Here, she gained a deeper understanding of the multiple organisational aspects involved in running a major contemporary art gallery.
Most recently, she gained a Post Graduate Diploma in the History of Art at the Courtauld Institute.
Aside from her gallery work, Margherita aims to one day establish a sustainable arts foundation that combines her passion for art and supporting young international artists. Additionally, she is planning to create a collective of female artists and photographers from around the world, acting as a platform to encourage, exhibit and sell their works.
