E.ART.H. Eataly Art House
Art as a new land. For everyone.
Eataly Art House (E.ART.H.) was born with the aim of making art accessible to the general public and celebrating inclusiveness, beauty and sustainability.
The mission of E.ART.H. is to give life to new ways of enjoying art for the public, and to a new type of collecting. The founding thought of E.ART.H. it is based on the idea that through art we can reach a broader and more in-depth understanding of our reality, looking at works as fertile ground through which to analyze the present and open new perspectives on the future. We believe that the encounter with art should be accessible and aimed at the widest possible audience.
An exhibition space of over a thousand square meters dedicated to temporary exhibitions of contemporary art and photography. The objective is to propose a high quality cultural offering, valorising the great protagonists of contemporary culture, with exhibitions by important curators on the Italian and international scene.
In the heart of the Eataly market, in an area open to all, long-term exhibitions dedicated to the presentation and sale of works of art have been set up. Three corridors, or "rays", dedicated to the contemporary and photography created in collaboration with Italian and international art galleries, and to a selection of artists under 40 selected by E.ART.H.
Thanks to the presence of cultural mediators and ad hoc digital media , it is possible to learn more about the authors and languages of the works on display. The aim is to bring art closer to a heterogeneous audience and give life to a new, more direct and accessible form of collecting.
The commitment of E.ART.H. communicating art to the general public also translates into the organization of training sessions: workshops, seminars, talks, educational activities. The Public Program explores the social and cultural issues addressed in the exhibitions, and will be created in collaboration with the partners and supporters of E.ART.H. The objective is also to involve local communities in creating culture by combining moments of learning and leisure.
E.ART.H. it is located in the converted spaces of what in the 1930s was the largest refrigerated warehouse in Europe. Together with Eataly, it occupies the spaces of the former refrigerated cells and a reinforced concrete dome with a diameter of 24 meters are made accessible again after a long period of abandonment, with a view to giving new life to a place of strong public interest. The restoration and adaptation of the spaces were carried out by the architect Mario Botta following the vision of sustainability, responsibility and sharing that distinguishes the projects of E.ART.H., Eataly and Green Pea.
