ARTE PONTE is the brainchild of JanKossen Contemporary gallery based in New York and Basel; whose owner Dr Jasmin Kossenjans is a German/Persian born curator living in Basel, Switzerland.

Operating as a daughter gallery to JanKossen, ARTE PONTE is a Swiss NGO association; operating as a project gallery. The association offers a platform to initiate a dialogue between the “artworld” and lesser known artists, cultures and new artistic initiatives.  The focus is to provide a stepping stone for artists whose talents are yet undiscovered within the global art world.

To achieve this, ARTE PONTE takes part in international art fairs, hosts an annual summer show FRESH!  in its New York JanKossen premises and organises an exhibition in Venice in tandem to the Venice Biennale every two years.

In addition, ARTE PONTE offers an online gallery presence for artists, including services such as CV writing, artist statement and general consultation to help the artist develop their career. One important aspect, is to help the artist find a permanent gallery to take them under their wing.
