World embrace a unique cultural sphere that transcends national borders.

While each region carries its own history and values,

they are open to unite, no matter the differences and inconsistencies.

A community united by life, not the economy.

Their wealth is far greater than the visible,

achieved by the way people live, full and vibrant.

Over time, energies born from pure existence

elevated into a form of expression called art.

Life, that no national borders or modern law can confine.

That is where we sense the potential of humanity.

In the fields of art and culture,

new perspectives have emerged

that were, in fact, always here since the ancient times.

In praise of humanity. In praise of life.

Philosophy
The Aura Contemporary Art Foundation aims to maintain and develop "the values that are unique to each region (AURA)" all over the world, which have been lost in the flow of modernization, development and urbanization of the world, and to build regions where people can live more prosperously and build a peaceful world.
Activity
In order to maintain and develop "the value that is unique to the region (AURA)," we will research, create archives, exhibit and disseminate information on contemporary art and culture rooted in local communities around the world, discover and nurture artists and curators from around the world, and promote international exchanges with contemporary arts and artists from abroad.
