A series of weekly exhibitions, performances, workshops and events open to artists, curators and neighboring galleries. Organized by gallery director Marco Antonini, it is a hybrid between art festival, short-term residency program and community jamboree. A project by Ivan Argote is the first exhibition/event of the 10-week event.
This Summer NURTUREart opens its doors to artists, curators and neighboring galleries, lending them a copy of the gallery keys and allowing them to use the exhibition space (and its roof) for a series of weekly exhibitions, performances, workshops and events. Organized by Gallery Director Marco Antonini, this hybrid between art festival, short-term residency program and community jamboree is a honest statement of identification with the people that make our community. Get ready to be a part of it! We will keep you updated via bi-weekly email newsletters and frequent updates on our website and social media pages.
As first exhibition/event of our 10-week WE ARE: Summer series, NURTUREart presents a project by Ivan Argote.

He participated to the show Vista at Socrates Sculpture Park (New York), Tiere in der Kunst at Galerie im Traklhaus (Salzburg), at the International Festival of Arts in Beijing, the Madrid Abierto Biennale, Hyperactivity at CAN (Neuchatel), Danse Élargie at Theater of the City in Paris, among others.
“Our lives are constantly influenced by the forces of history, economy and politics. These forces saturate the environments we all live in. My works are questions about how we experience those forces, and what our position in regards to them is. I often create interventions and performances in the public space creating video pieces that explore the city as a space of political and relational conflict. I work in many media: sculpture, installation, painting, photography and internet-based projects, and also make site-specific projects that explore different relations between art, curators galleries and the public.”
