VIN VIN is a gallery for contemporary art focused on emerging international practices.
The gallery was founded by Naples-born former orchestral conductor and violinist Vincenzo Della Corte in 2016 as a vehicle to pursue his passion for contemporary art. The gallery is committed to long term collaborations with a core group of artists in addition to ongoing projects that look for new formats to respond to the questions of our time, and has occupied a number of spaces before settling in its permanent location on Hintzerstrasse.
