Elena founded Assab One, a non profit organisation, with the aim of providing artists with a non-conventional environment for research and expression. Assab One produces and promotes exhibitions, events and art projects focusing on initiatives that integrate different languages capable of reaching beyond the art world. Assab, the name of an African port, is a meeting place where exchanges take place between different individuals, realities and cultures.
Once an industrial factory, Assab One is today an idyllic, tangible space, open to the neighborhood and to the city, in constant dialogue with artists and with associated initiatives and institutions in Italy and the world.
Assab One kindly hosts Misschiefs in Milan. Tack Elena Quarestani!
