Mission Statement

AENY – Spanish Artists in New York – is a non-profit organization which was established in the fall of 2010 to promote inter-disciplinary artistic collaborations and build a cultural bridge between Spain and the United States.

AENY, Spanish acronym for “Spanish Artists in New York”, is a multidisciplinary collective of artists joined not only by their common heritage, but also their mission: to produce cutting-edge, inter-disciplinary contemporary work that reflects the needs, longings and uncertainty of the cross-cultural society in which we live. Thus, AENY aims to bring together Spanish artists in all disciplines to examine the overlaps, collisions, similarities and differences between Spain’s tradition and modern New York culture, and to create a mutually enriching artistic dialog between the two countries.
