Founded in 2008 by Stefano and Raffaella Sciarretta, Nomas Foundation aims at supporting and promoting contemporary research in art. The program, curated by Cecilia Canziani and Ilaria Gianni, focuses on the structure and language of art through the analysis of critical and emerging practices on an international level.
Nomas Foundation is a mobile, flexible organism, capable of taking in differences as a value to be fostered and promoted. Mobility is a key factor behind its experimentation, opportunities, cultural interchange, and research.
The program is structured in different sections: exhibitions that involve collaboration with national and international artists, talks and seminars with prominent figures of contemporary culture (“Reading Room”), and research and educational activities in collaboration with local schools and art academies (“Nomas Lab”).
