The GAA Foundation is a Dutch non-profit organisation that aims to heighten the awareness about the more philosophical themes in contemporary art, architecture and in culture in general. In particular, we promote the theme: "Time – Space – Existence", making this subject matter more accessible to a wider international audience. In order to achieve this goal, we organise exhibitions, symposia, publish extensively and we create art projects.  

Large art and architecture exhibitions are organised every year during the Venice Biennale period hosted and supported by the EUROPEAN CULTURAL CENTRE. All our exhibitions are free of charge for all visitors. 

The GAA Foundation was founded in 2002 in New York, USA. Since 2009, the Foundation is based in Leiden, the Netherlands with a branch in Venice, Italy. Since 2002 the GAA Foundation has organised 26 contemporary art exhibitions and 6 symposia in Japan, USA and different European countries. We extensively publish about all our enterprises in art books and magazines. In addition, we support and encourage as well as enable, the creation of artworks by certain artists and undertake joint projects with them.
