CREATING NEW WAYS TO LIVE AND EXPERIENCE CONTEMPORARY ART

We call ourselves, not a regular gallery, but a phygital Contemporary art gallery.

What is phygital? A mix between physical and digital.

What is a phygital art gallery? A new concept of a gallery where we have a strong presense online and our physical presense is very well studied between specific pop up exhibitions and strategic artfairs around the globe.

We believe in the importance of a digital strong presense nowadays. This is why we concentrate on a digital programme with online exhibitions and viewing rooms through our artsy platform and a phyisical programme through worldwide pop up exhibition and key artfairs.

By working by projects such as an specific artfair, a pop up art exhibition or an institutional show , we are able to express the artist idea and communicate art in a deeper way without limitations.
