Standards is a flexible space for art and music, born in 2015 from an idea of Alberto Boccardi and Nicola Ratti.
As platform and catalyst for artistic experimentation, it encourages multiple perspectives, with the aim to engage relations and widen definitions for sonic and visual cultures. Standards proposes live performances, exhibitions, workshops, artist residencies and public presentations. The main space features Cavo, a wooden site-specific installation acting on the acoustics and on the aesthetics, conceived as practice-based research.

Standards is animated by non profit art organizations Frequente and Terzo Paesaggio.
