Mission

Gallery Ten Seven is an online exhibit portal focusing on the intersection of art and architecture. Open internationally, the gallery’s goal is to promote the visions and ideas of both the architects who practices in the art space and artist who engages with architecture as a source of inspiration. Often the two creatives intersect through public art commissioning, architects who actively participate in the art world, artist and architects who collaborate, art where the subject mater is  a part of the built environment and much more. 1993 in Detroit, an exhibit of art by architects “Industria” was referred to by the media as “the secret works of architects”.
