ART + TECH + HOUSE
Since our founding in 2015, ARTECHOUSE has become the premier destination for audiences of all ages to engage with innovative art — both in person at our immersive art spaces and at home with our extended reality mobile app.
Inspired by over a decade of experience running an arts and cultural organization that supported and showcased emerging artists, co-founders Sandro and Tati realized an opportunity — to create a permanent home where pioneering, technology-driven artists could experiment, develop and show their work to new audiences.
“The way that cinema redefined 20th century art, we’re redefining 21st century art with new forms.”Sandro, Co-Founder & Chief Creative Officer
This type of immersive, innovative art is difficult to adequately experience in a traditional museum or gallery so they personally invested in resources such as state-of-the-art technology, advanced design tools, unique architectural spaces and a team of passionate experts to engage artists and the public around these new, genre-pushing art forms.
In June 2017, the team opened the first ARTECHOUSE space in Washington, DC. This was followed by opening ARTECHOUSE Miami in December 2018 and ARTECHOUSE NYC in September 2019.
To enhance the experience at our art spaces, we developed an extended reality (XR) mobile app that visitors use to unlock hidden virtual art throughout their visit. In 2020, due to the pandemic and temporary closing of our spaces, we expanded our XR app with a library of augmented reality art and cause-based experiences so that anyone, anywhere could experience innovative, interactive art for free.
“One of the most challenging parts of being a media artist is that our ideas sometimes do not fit in any place. Having a home like ARTECHOUSE — a place for these ideas that are beyond everyday tools, beyond museums and galleries — is something very special.”Refik Anadol, Media Artist
Since opening, we have:
- Produced over 20 groundbreaking, multi-sensory art exhibitions and experiences for all ages.
- Engaged over 1 million visitors and XR app users.
- Received praise from the New York Times, BBC, National Geographic and more as the premier destination for innovative art. Read more
What the future holds is unknown and that excites us. Always on the forefront of what is next, we will continue to push the boundaries of what is possible.
