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 —

Jupiter Woods (Londra)

From 2017 Jupiter Woods reconfigures as a curatorial studio, co-directed by Hanna Laura Kaljo, Lucy Lopez and Carolina Ongaro. This shift reflects our commitment to facilitating the production and exchange of artistic and curatorial research; forging and developing collaboration across borders; and cultivating curatorial methodologies founded on relatedness, experimentation and the feminine.
We look forward to rearranging the rhythm of how we work, providing space for reflection, uncertainty and moments of being together. This is a response to our three-year experience of navigating the London art scene, as well as our ongoing question of the role of small-scale curatorial organisations in supporting the very first, fragile stages of artistic ideas. Our nomadic activity includes discursive programming, residencies, exhibitions and publishing. Jupiter Woods is currently based in South Bermondsey, London.
Jupiter Woods was established in early 2014 by Hanna Laura Kaljo, Lucy Lopez, Carolina Ongaro, Barnie Page, Cory Scozzari and Emma Siemens-Adolphe, with an exhibition space and residency facility in a domestic setting.

Gasworks (Londra)

Established in 1994, Gasworks is a non-profit contemporary visual art organisation working at the intersection between UK and international practices and debates. We provide studios for London-based artists; commission emerging UK-based and international artists to present their first major exhibitions in the UK; and develop a highly-respected international residencies programme, which offers rare opportunities for international artists to research and develop new work in London. All programmes are accompanied by events and participatory workshops that engage audiences directly with artists and their work.
Process and development are fundamental to us. We establish long-term relationships with artists and work with them to test out new ideas and establish dialogue with peers and the public. This level of support allows artists to confidently make a significant new step in their professional career, whether the outcome is a work-in-progress, an event or an exhibition.
Over the last two decades Gasworks has worked with over 250 artists from 70 countries around the world. Many of our alumni have gone on to exhibit at major institutions and art events, and have received nominations for – or won – prestigious awards including the Turner Prize, Absolut Award and Pinchuk Art Prize. Alumni include Yinka Shonibare, Goshka Macuga, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, The Otolith Group, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Tania Bruguera, Song Dong, Hassan Khan, Alexandre da Cunha, Renata Lucas, Cinthia Marcelle, Subodh Gupta and many more.
Gasworks has recently secured its future by purchasing and redeveloping its home. The £2.1million project has given the organisation unprecedented resilience and great confidence in continuing to support new generations of emerging UK and international artists.
Gasworks is also the hub of the Triangle Network, an international network of over thirty arts organisations, mostly based in Africa, Asia and South America. Triangle Network regularly develops and facilitates artists’ residencies and workshops as well as peer-to-peer exchanges, both between the UK and the rest of the world or within a specific region. Triangle informs Gasworks’ programme, giving the organisation unparalleled opportunities to nurture and exhibit artists from across the world.

Suburbia (Granada)

Suburbia is born of the firm belief that the future of society and cities is inextricably linked to the creative and cultural development of the same. Culturally active urban centers make them better places to live, work and have fun. In turn, the generation of cultural stimuli makes their citizens intellectually active, more prepared and open minded, in order to face the changes and evolutions of an ever-growing society. Global and in constant evolution. Suburbia is a collaborative initiative, a space for exhibitions, conferences and workshops, an innovative reality that becomes a forum for exchanging ideas, proposing solutions and activating creativity.

INCA (Seattle)

INCA is not well-adjusted. INCA rejects populist, and market-driven framing by consensus. Raymond Williams: “A culture has two aspects: the known meanings and direction, which its members are trained to; the new observations and meanings, which are offered and tested.” INCA takes the stance that already-existing forms of culture are not inherently more valuable than emerging forms. INCA is run on generosity and collaboration. INCA is an artist-run initiative founded and directed by Bergman/Salinas.

1 Koffer Kunst

1 Koffer Kunst is a project by Veronica Liotti and takes its name from the first group exhibition that she organized in Düsseldorf in May 2015.
1 Koffer Kunst is an art space that you can visit only for a short amount of time and on specific occasions.
1 Koffer Kunst is a project of contemporary art: it functions as an art space but without a fixed location. It has just a nominal location in Düsseldorf, where it is currently based.
1 Koffer Kunst will be accessible to the public only on occasion of exhibitions, events, art fairs and so on. Every time it will provisionally take a real address and location.
Even though its epiphanies are discontinuous and wanderer 1 Koffer Kunst is of course always reachable.
Bearing all this in mind 1 Koffer Kunst goes every time everywhere curiosity and chances driven it.
