Architecture for Art began as a website six years ago and opened its doors as a gallery on October 23, 2010. “Architecture for Art is about the question of space and how that space affects the experience of artwork,” says gallerist Liane Torre. “Art is an experience and the architecture that holds the art is an essential part of that experience. Our mission is to bring the intersection of art and architecture together.”
Architecture for Art is a collective effort bringing together disparate artists, architects, photographers, filmmakers, musicians, writers, museumgoers, and all who share a passion for art, architecture, design, music, and the natural landscape. AforA’s aim is to inspire and connect lovers of art and architecture from around the world in order to create an affective – and effective – role for architecture at a crossroads with the arts.
AforA seeks to create a single-source think-tank as an incubator of new ideas for art and space – including museum and gallery design, art in nature, and the dynamics of private and public spaces. It provides information and open communication internationally on art and the space we live in through its gallery exhibitions, website, films and events. AforA attempts to give people a more personal, intimate portrait of remarkable artists and architects who are involved with a deep and significant production that teaches and inspires on all levels – artistically, professionally, intellectually, and culturally.
