Durante il mese di agosto, ATPdiary ha proposto una mappatura di diversi artisti internazionali attraverso il filtro dei curatori, organizzatori, critici che hanno costituito i diversi artist run spaces diffusi sul nostro territorio. Sono stati coinvolti 21 spazi a cui abbiamo chiesto di indicarci gli artisti che stimano e apprezzano, con cui hanno intrapreso una collaborazione.
ATPdiary ha deciso di allargare la panoramica degli artist run spaces anche a livello internazionale, ma sempre con il filtro dei nostri connazionali: abbiamo chiesto di indicarci dei nomi di spazi no profit esteri che considerano interessanti per la qualità delle proposte, dei progetti portati a termine, degli artisti presentati.

Seguono gli spazi emersi e il relativo segnalatore italiano. Le descrizioni sono state recuperare dai vari siti web —

Treize (Paris)

Like an umbrella in Paris, Treize is a space that shelters le commissariat, Gallien Déjean Olga Rozenblum et Fanny Schulmann. Treize never manages to find its collective identity, but this doesn’t matter. Treize tries permanently to reinvent its methods of collaboration, production, diffusion and communication to link the different activities (exhibitions, concerts, lectures) and the various skills of its members (artists, curator, producers, critics).

Room E-10 27 (Paris)

Room E-10 27 began as a project space established by Thomas Butler in an apartment in the Goutte d’Or district of Paris and has since moved to Berlin. The project takes its name from the modernist villa (1924) designed by Irish architect Eileen Gray and found in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, France. For many years the villa lay neglected and forgotten, its design wrongly attributed to Le Corbusier. Today it is a protected structure, but has yet to be fully restored or given the kind of recognition that other significant modernist buildings so enjoy. The project is an homage to the spirit of Eileen Gray. It is also a nod to the failures of modernism, its histories of exclusion and erasures.

Frankfurt am Main (Berlin-Neukölln)

Frankfurt am Main is an artist-run gallery in Berlin-Neukölln. It is situated in a front store space that used to be an ice cream shop that was standing empty for twelve years. The program has a focus on solo exhibitions of emerging international artists and provides a platform of visibility – in the space and on the website—that has a statement character. The geographic reference in the name points to the idea of dislocation, to indicate a kind of heterotopia – a conflation of spaces as well as of different practices. Frankfurt am Main was founded on October 25 2013 by Emiliano Pistacchi, and opened with its first show on January 25, 2014.

Almanac (London, Turin)

Almanac is a non-profit space based in London and Turin dedicated to showing art in various forms and engaging with ways art can become a part of the daily rhythms of life. We are interested to explore the borders of curatorial agency and the potential of cultural change through creative collaborations. Regarding the exhibition as an act of communication, we aim to facilitate dialogue as a way of opening up artistic practices to new registers of thought. By focusing on solo shows of young artists as well as a complementary programme of events and performances, our aim is to support artists in their individual practice and to provide a deeper knowledge of these practices to the public. These activities also form a part of our commitment towards stimulating public engagement.

Arrow Factory (Beijing)

Arrow Factory is an independently run alternative art space in Beijing that is located in a small hutong alley in the city center. Arrow Factory reclaims an existing storefront and transforms it into a space for site-specific installations and projects that are designed to be viewed from the street 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Arrow Factory’s modestly sized space (15 sqm) occupies a former vegetable stand, signaling an economy of means that informs our practice and promotes artistic collaboration, exploration and experimentation across different cultural contexts and viewing publics. We are committed to presenting works by local and international artists that are provisional in nature, highly contingent upon the immediate environment and that form meaningful responses to the diverse economic, political and social conditions of our given locality and everyday lived experiences.

Things That Can Happen (Hong Kong)

‘Things that can happen’ is a non-profit art space located in the historic district of Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, in the heart of Hong Kong. Opening in September 2015, ‘Things’ aims to provide a platform for open experimentation and dialogue in response to the rapidly changing cultural and political context of our city. Housed on the first floor of a residential walk-up building, the site of the art space is located within one of Hong Kong’s most diverse communities, with both the highest concentration of senior citizens and new immigrants in the city – threatened by urban redevelopment, its significance in Hong Kong’s social and industrial history, as well as its geographic centrality in Hong Kong.

Institute for Provocation (Beijing)

IFP tries to produce inter-provocative working network and methods throughout the cooperation with curators, artists, researchers, its residency artists as well as the people who may work in non-artistic field. Firstly, the IFP organizes research, writing, workshop, curatorial and publication activities based on an institutional perspective; Secondly, while assisting residency artists and curators to complete individual projects during their stays, the IFP shall initiatively exchange the concepts of our institutional practice and share the network with them. We reckon that our trajectories would supplement, inspire and irritate each other. Through these collaborations, we aspire to create plenty of meaningful crossings and drawing a more diverse cultural landscape under the operation of the institute as a whole.

Hotel Art Pavilion

Hotel Art was founded in 2012 as a means to generate exhibition documentation for online audiences. Solo and group shows were installed in non-art spaces like hotel rooms, Airbnbs, and public spaces just long enough to document them, sometimes with standard photography, sometimes in the form of livestreams, videos, or other alternative forms of documentation. H.A. Pavilion is the second phase of the project, and is located in a free-standing gallery space in a residential Brooklyn yard. We are open by appointment only and welcome anyone to schedule a time to come by.
