Art@Work, or Art At Work (AAW) started in 2009 as a contemporary art production platform. Thanks to the flexibility of the structure and the different skills, AAW works with institutions, companies and private in order to create different and effective mechanisms for promotion and dissemination of projects both inside and outside the art world.

Among the most important collaborations are those with the Municipality of Turin, Enciclopedia Italiana Treccani, MAMbo museum in Bologna, the Querini Stampalia Foundation in Venice, the La Raia Foundation in Gavi (AL), Festival del Maggio Fiorentino, Florence. For Artissima, the development and coordination of Walkie Talkie, sponsored by Lauretana: a project of informal guided tours through the stands of the fair, with curators and collectors.
Case Chiuse by Paola Clerico, a project born in 2014 and spin-off of AAW, is also dedicated to the production, dissemination and consulting in the field of contemporary arts. Conceiving and producing exhibitions in private places, making them temporarily accessible to a vast and heterogeneous audience, thus facilitating a different and more intimate art experience. In February 2020 Case Chiuse inaugurated its HQ, the new studio and exhibition space in via Rosolino Pilo 14, Milan. This place is now the core of AAW and Case Chiuse projects that will be articulated both inside and outside the space, always following the criteria that distinguish its activities: experimentation, research, flexibility, accessibility and collaboration.
The selected locations, obtained on free loan thanks to each partnership, range from private gardens, villages or extraordinary apartments such as the top floor of the Bosco Verticale, in partnership with Coima Real Estate, Milan.
To date, Case Chiuse has produced 12 exhibitions and numerous collaborations to promote alternative and unconventional modes of fruition, involving artists, galleries, curators, private and public institutions, such Fondazione Elpis (MI), Collezione Ramo (MI),Galleria Continua/Les Moulins (FR),Annet Gelink Gallery (NL), Matthew Marks Gallery (NY).
