Spazio Nour is Spazio Nour.
But what does this mean?
Not a gallery, not a club, not a social center. Spazio Nour is Spazio Nour.
It brings together a part of those places mentioned above, developing them in its own way, to create an environment which is not an isolated center from its context, but it would be a point of reunion that is born from Art and linked to the reality which surrounds it.
The project of Spazio Nour has got started from the necessity of creating a new synergetic model, which manifests the contamination of different forms of Art in an artistic and social project, thanks to the collaboration of international artists.
The founder of the project of Spazio Nour is Mahmoud Saleh Mohammadi, Iranian artist, who had chosen to turn his studio in Milan in a collective work of art, creating a site-specific in continuous construction, which particularly affects the context in which it is located.
Spazio Nour is greeted in the courtyard of Viale Bligny 42, the building is located in the city center, between Porta Romana and Via Bocconi, on that stretch of road that for 68 steps reveals a parallel world, known to the chronicle of Milan as a theater of drug dealing and petty crime.
“El Camerùn”, drug fortress, world building; many are the names with which Bligny 42 is known and this reflects the multiple identities of the building.
Its courtyard is the heart of this microcosm which is not just a common area of transit, but a real square, where the encounter and the clash between different cultures and lives happens.
