The Foundation is located in the historical center of Milan, only a few hundred meters away from the Duomo and next to the Castello Sforzesco. It was founded in 2000 by the artist Luciana Matalon with the aim of creating not only an exhibition space but also an international “crossroad” of new ideas and an occasion for visual, emotive and intellectual enrichment.
In the first section the Foundation hosts and promotes historical and contemporary exhibitions of painting, sculpture and photography.
The permanent collection area is dedicated to Matalon’s artworks and guarantees a space-time continuity for Luciana Matalon’s rich artistic production: she is in fact a paintress, sculptress and jewel designer.
The Foundation also organizes meetings, conferences, chamber music concerts, theatrical performances and cultural exchanges, with special focus to the traditional culture and new trends in Asian arts (Japan, China and Korea).
It also promotes a connection between business world and culture by organizing activities and events in collaboration with various companies, for example, Apple, Revlon, J.P. Morgan, Universal Italia, Allianz Bank and Borsa Italiana.
The Foundation constantly improves international partnerships with the aim to develop strategies to sell the works created by Luciana Matalon and other artists.
