Art Gallery Owners
ATB is a Cultural Association, Art Gallery, Publishing House and Magazine with a mission to promote artists, writers, poets and creatives through projects screened and chosen on the basis of their intrinsic communicative, aesthetic, intellectual and research values.
It is a cultural association founded in 2012 that boasts artists, writers, communicators and high-level culture professionals among its members.
It is an exhibition space that hosts installations, presentations, exhibitions, workshops and cultural meetings aimed at promoting all artistic languages, especially those regarded as less academic.
It is an independent publishing house founded in 2017 that publishes and promotes texts, which intend to offer the reader insights on contemporary culture, ergodic literature, artist's books and art in all its forms, particularly those most neglected, as opportunities to expand one's own knowledge.
It is ATB Mag In, an innovative magazine published in Italy, France and Ireland that focuses its attention on the quality of its contents and proposes itself as an independent space dedicated to art, literature, poetry to be read in a transversal way, far from both classification and the business logic.
ATB welcomes artists, writers, poets, and gives voice and strength to new opportunities for creating a space for thought and reflection, to unusual forms of expression, to innovative journeys and forays into the contemporary world in order to discover artistic experiences, which are intertwined with daring experiments going almost undetected in the cultural Italian scene.
