Milan Artist Run Space – MARS

A space for artistic and creative relations in Milan

Via Guido Guinizelli 6, Milan, Italy

MARS opened in Milan on December 3, 2008. A reality all managed by artists and meant for an audience eager to know more intimately the “engines” of contemporary art, MARS, located in the Pasteur area of Milan, was born after an idea by Lorenza Boisi who, together with other artists, launched a programme of exhibitions, performances and art events modelled on the most notorious artist-run spaces in Europe.

After ten years, MARS continues to document the kaleidoscopic phenomenologies of emerging and established art practices on both the Italian and international level. MARS’ approach to contemporary themes is multifaceted and is expressed through site-specific installations, solo and collective shows, participatory projects as well as special events organized outside MARS’ boundaries in such venues as international art fairs and museums in Italy and abroad.
