Established in 2020 by Marina Nissim, with the aim of engaging in the contemporary art field, an area that never ceases to stir the Milanese entrepreneur’s heart and pique her curiosity, Fondazione Elpis pays close attention to the educational, economic, and social impacts of its activities.
The Fondazione particularly focuses on supporting young and emerging artists from different countries and cultures whose talent deserves greater opportunities for visibility and support. The exhibitions grant artists a wide range of expression and use of artistic media, following thematic parameters, defined case by case.
Alongside the production of exhibitions and special events across Italy, such as Una Boccata d’Arte, the annual program includes educational initiatives aimed at involving all types of audience demographics, including non-experts. Particular emphasis is placed on stimulating the curiosity and sensitivity of young people through the practical applications of the themes that Fondazione Elpis explores.
Running alongside the exhibitions, therefore, are events, workshops, talks, book presentations, and artist residencies.
