Chekos’art together with Ania K. (living and working in Lecce too) put the idea of a new exhibition centre in continuous mutation. Their idea took shape in the†The “167B /Street” space dedicated to art .
167/B Street is a work in progress to open the city to art, according to contemporary trends and experiments. Several artists in rotation revolutionise the space with a site specific installation in the name of the mutability of art. 167B/street is also a laboratory of new artistic production, as T-shirts, canvas, prints…
Since 3 years ago they participated to different European projects, as youth exchange, seminars, workshops, collective exhibition in Italy and abroad.
