Nous Art Gallery

Via Cellolese 3/D, Via San Martino 13 | San Gimignano

Commonly translated as ‘mind’ or ‘intellect’, the Greek word ‘Nous’ is a key term in the philosophies of Plato, Aristotle and Plotinus. What gives Nous its special significance is the value attributed to its activity and to the metaphysical state of things that are ‘noetic’, namely intelligible and incorporeal, as distinct from being perceptible and corporeal.

The philosophy of Nous Art Gallery starts from the awareness that the human being is a small part of a larger ecosystem that precedes him. In this view, art is only partially a human product but rather the result of the synergy between man and natural elements.

For this reason, each exhibition curated by Nous is formed thanks to a selection of artists who make the four elements the substance of their research, interpreting their relationship with nature with different techniques and materials.

The main venues of the gallery are located in San Gimignano in Via Cellolese and in Via San Martino near Piazza Sant’Agostino, one of the most evocative and culturally active areas in the city.
