Curating exhibitions and art projects is a precious practice as long as it relates to sincere engagement with artists and fruitful cooperation with art organizations in order to activate concepts, to invent creative formats of visibility, to make enjoyable collective learning activities.
Having a solid expertise in the contemporary art scenes and a long experience in exhibition making, we are constantly developing an international network of independent artists, curators, researchers, as well as with public/private art institutions.
With an educational background of art history and curatorial studies in Europe, having conceived and curatorial projects in different organizations in Asia, we do believe that such multi cultural horizons can produce beautiful artistic experiences and cultural encounters between people.
