LINEA

Florence for centuries has welcomed artists and cultural figures from around the world that come to admire its artistic and architectural treasures, this glorious past that has had great impact on the present culture.

A new space for contemporary art is born in Florence, developed to be a halfway point between the museum and gallery as well as a meeting point between the past and present. In addition to the deep cultural roots that characterize this city, it is also an important motivator to look beyond the horizon of the international art scene and bring it in contact with those who live this city.

The focus of LINEA is to highlight both national and international artists, of vast multifarious disciplines, subjects and mediums thus creating a LINEA (line) between the past and present-day international artistic reality, with a particular attention to emerging artist. LINEA, a place for the fruition of art and all its forms, without labels or preconceptions will host exhibitions that will include both solo and group shows.

LINEA Spazio Arte Contemporanea was conceived by the organizers of the Florence Biennale; that for some time have had the desire to create an new ongoing space for the promotion of contemporary art and culture in the heart of Florence. LINEA is a versatile and poly-functional space, suitable for high profile cultural events, book readings, workshops, lectures, and performances.

The space can accommodate individual and group exhibitions.  The space counts with 56 linear meters of exhibition surface that may fit more than 30 medium-size artworks (approx. 150 cm each). The spacious exhibition halls allow space for installations and sculptures for a maximum height of 3 meters. The beautiful garden can accommodate outdoor sculptures/installations of over 4 meters in height and host inauguration cocktails.
This polyfunctional space and can be used to host book presentations, lectures, mini-conferences, cultural events and much more.
