A french with algerian origins living in Madrid
The promoter of this new space for contemporary art in Madrid is Sabrina Amrani. French of Algerian origin, she impulses a gallery project marked by one word: dialogue, to see and to listen to others. Therefore, the distinctive signs of the gallery Sabrina Amrani are proposals that invite to think on the individual, the society or space. “Political or social thoughts: the artist’s own, always individually”, Amrani said.
Established and emerging artists of many nationalities will come together in Sabrina’s space because, as stated by the gallerist: “Nor art, much less dialogue, have borders.” However, Sabrina Amrani acknowledges that the project will pay particular attention to the new voices that are emerging in North Africa, Middle East and South Asia regions.
