Associazione Umbra Arte Contemporanea e Scambi Culturali
Association of Contemporary Art and Cultural Exchange for Umbria
Art is a bridge to the world and the ArtEX mandate is to encourage and expand this artistic cross-roads into a strong artistic community for art lovers and practitioners from around the world.
ArtEX is based in the beautiful umbrian hill-top town of Todi and from there it undertakes a wide range of activities and services to support and encourage the building of a broad artistic community throughout the region of Umbria open to the world.
Art Zone Umbria
The High Renaissance period of the early 16th Century included the artist of the 'Umbrian school' which included artists such as Perugino, Raphael and Pinturichcio
Umbria was a centre for 'modernist' and 'futurist' art in the 20th century claiming notable artists such as Alberto Burri, Piero Dorazio, Gerado Dottori and Leonardo Leoncillo
The 21st century continues this strong tradition from Umbria encompassing all streams of artistic expression. Once again this is an outward-facing community of artists both locally-born and artists attracted into Umbria from around the globe.
