Amant Foundation is an international private arts organization that fosters artistic experimentation and dialogue across disciplines through residencies and public programming at its two locales: the New York City borough of Brooklyn and the Tuscan village of Chiusure in the heart of Siena province.
In New York, Amant offers an interdisciplinary program of residencies, exhibitions, performance, workshops and film & lecture series that support the work of practitioners across diverse creative fields. Amant is also committed to participating in cultural partnerships with likeminded organizations and institutions in the US and abroad while also being committed to encouraging local community engagement through programming that explores and expands our understanding of contemporary art and culture.
In Siena, Amant provides independent living spaces and studios, state-of-the-art facilities, which we believe, will encourage resident artists to focus single-mindedly on their projects while also enjoying easy access to key Renaissance monuments.
