"ART,IN ITSELF, IS AN ATTEMPT TO BRING ORDER OUT OF CHAOS." STEPHEN SONDHEIM
Founded by Karina El Helou a Franco-lebanese curator, STUDIOCUR/ART is based in Paris and operates as a non-profit curatorial platform specialised in contemporary art.
STUDIOCUR/ART aims to work with both young and established artists researching and developing a contemporary language on subjects including, but not limited to, nature, sound, archeology and time.
The platform has a keen interest in bringing contemporary art to heritage buildings and uncommon spaces, moving from the whitecube experience.It also develops its interdisciplinary approach by inviting academics and artists to meet and exchange, encouraging different thought processes in non-institutional spaces.
What is important to STUDIOCUR/ART, is to offer freedom for creative thought to unfold without restraint or fear.
The platform collaborates with curators and organises three exhibitions per year internationally in public and private spaces.
