Bressanone Civic Gallery

Under the direction of the South Tyrolean Association of Artists, art exhibitions are organised under the Bressanone Arcades

Just like the provincial capital of Bolzano, the episcopal town of Bressanone has its own civic gallery. You can visit art exhibitions under the Bressanone Arcades: They are organised by the South Tyrolean Association of Artists and take place throughout the year. Every year, the Artists' Association invites different curators to show contemporary art that refers to the place and the surroundings. In addition, there is cooperation with institutions and facilities throughout the country to create synergies and expand the network for the artistic community.

Among past exhibitions at the Bressanone Civic Gallery - "Stadtgalerie Brixen" in German, "Galleria Civica di Bressanone" in Italian - are those of Siggi Hofer, an artist born in Brunico, and Christine Runggaldier, born in Bressanone and now living between the Val Gardena valley and Venice, as well as various group exhibitions and special projects.

The place, the Arcades themselves, are also steeped in history: With its more than 1,000 years, Bressanone is one of the oldest towns in Tyrol. The Large and Small Arcades date back to the Middle Ages, but the Large Arcades received their shape around 1444. Today they are the popular shopping street of Bressanone, with winding arcaded houses, small cafés and a wide variety of shops. And how can the Bressanone Civic Gallery be reached? The Large Arcades are a pedestrian zone: Outside the centre, the Bressanone city buses stop and there are also parking spaces.
