JOEY RAMONE was launched on February 2012 at the very center of Rotterdam.
Co-founded by Dutch gallerist Hans Bakker & Greek artist Kiki Petratou the gallery is committed to developing an ambitious and vibrant multidisciplinary and cross-generational program.

The gallery represents a group of international and Dutch artists who use a diverse range of media to explore contemporary socio-political, cultural and technological themes.

Next to the regular gallery program, which presents six solo exhibitions a year, the gallery also runs 'Attraction of the Opposites', an irregular side program, which includes curated group shows, artist talks, lectures, film screenings, performances and project collaboration. The objective is to provide a platform for contemporary art and discourse, by combining the attributes of both a conventional gallery (facilitating the long-term development of the artists' careers) and the more content and context-based approach of a non-profit initiative.

With a brand new project space located exactly next to the gallery and which just opened JOEY RAMONE will pursue the adventure further in a regular basis!
