A3 is a platform concentrating on "la ricchezza" of Italian contemporary art to spur the interest in young artists on an international basis.
"On our way from Frankfurt to Cologne we sat in the car talking about the international art scene. As I am half German and half Italian, we could not evade talking about Italian art and its importance for all the following developments in art as well as its dominant influence. The vast variety of fantastic artists like Tintoretto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and many more. But we asked ourselves: Where did it stop? Where did Italy lost its power being a leading country concerning art? Why is it getting lost on the international market of contemporary art and lastly - what can we do in order to change that?"
This project concentrates on Italian emerging artists but moreover wants to enable exchange, communication and chances across borders. It represents a bridge between the glowing history of Italian art and the growing Italian contemporary art scene. The artist archive shows the variety and the large amount of great Italian artists represented by selected works and statements.
With A3 we want to awaken the interest in Italian art and widen the horizon of great Italian art by an impressively strong and rich artistic scene consisting of young artists. The longterm vision is to create art spaces showing this growing power and enabling an active discourse between cultures and art scenes.
We are constantly researching and actively scanning through all the medias to find Italian artists but if you think you fit the concept please feel free to contact us and support this project!
