The Gliacrobati Gallery was founded in 2017 and conceived by Raffaella Bortino as an exhibition space dedicated to the languages of Art Brut, Irregular Art  and Outsider Art.

The gallery is directed by the artist and art therapist Francesco Sena.

The artists we represent pursue expressive needs driven by impulses, in constant dialogue with their idiosyncrasies and biographical characteristics that betray their complex experiences of life, far from the social rules and mechanisms of the art system. Our goal is to legitimize the work of artists, whether they be  self-taught and sometimes even unaware of their talent or coming from structured academic pathways, who are working outside the mainstream art world, revealing their vision of the world  through the creation of works marked by a language that is expressively instinctive, aesthetically blunt and artistically effective .

In addition to the exhibition and research activities, the Gliacrobati Gallery supports  a group artists  called “Collettivo Gliacrobati” patients with dual diagnosis, coordinated by Carola Lorio art therapist and photo-art therapist and Francesco Sena in collaboration with the Bus Stop therapeutic communities.
