Curator and artistic promoter, talent scout, art coach

Elena Ferrari

“The curator's role is to lead the artist or art lover to achieve his or her goal. Starting from your dreams or your most intimate desires. My aim is to make people happy through art”.

The energetic professional activity of Elena Ferrari has its roots in the early 1990s, with the collaboration within the then Fininvest Group in the financial and investment sector.

For years she was General Manager of a company linked to the world of comics and illustration, leader in the collecting and interior design sector. This allowed her to give PassepARTout an innovative imprint, with new promotion and sales strategies, combined with the consolidated and more classic experience acquired from her birth, as a "daughter of art".

“The Ferrari family has been present for decades in the art and talent scouting circuit. There are many Italian and foreign artists who began their career with us and who now enjoy the greatest international recognition and artistic prizes”.

But why “Unconventional Gallery”?
I wanted to overturn the concept of gallery by offering PassepARTout an identity of "alternative gallery", different from the usual stereotypes and false formalisms. PassepARTout, whose meaning represents for us a fundamental concept through a play on words, that is everything goes through art wants to be a point of reference for lovers of art in all its forms and in particular of emerging and non-emerging artists who have not yet found a modus operandi to extricate themselves from the multiple exhibition offers to which they are daily solicited, offering a path concrete exhibition that supports them in their professional growth.

PassepARTout Unconventional Gallery therefore, it arises from the need to "open new doors" of cultural perception, whether they refer to the visual arts or literature, as well as offering a new space to contemporary art, indeed, SIXTEEN!

Our project is to develop a cultural bridge between the pictorial arts, sculpture, video art, photography and literature, making use of a new methodology within artistic interventions, with the use of new creative languages ​​and multimedia communication channels that cross the art market to bring together different cultures aimed at improving quality and intellectual vivacity”.
