An artist-run space is a gallery space run by artists, thus circumventing the structures of public and private galleries. Artist-run spaces have become realised as an important factor in urban regeneration. This effect was particularly strong in Glasgow, where the city won the accolade 'European Capital of Culture' in 1990, largely due to the large number of artist-run exhibition spaces and galleries.[1] Curator Hans Ulrich Obrist coined the term "The Glasgow Miracle" to describe this.

3 137 celebrates the summer period and looks at the global map just before the heat wave. 3 137 is happy to invite you to “ATA”, the Art Travel Agency grand opening on 5, 6 and 7 July.

Art Travel Agency is a database of information, images and oral descriptions about art spaces around the world that someone can enrich or ask for information. Art travel agency is a process of updating and networking that works via email. If you want to be a member of ATA you need to add some of your knowledge about art spaces you have visited time to time around the world, to the further archive, sending an email. After this step the traveler/member can ask for information about his destination via email and take the unique info considering that after his journey needs to enrich the archive with his experiences.

Especially for the Art Travel Agency beginning we are happy to invite Daniel Kemeny, an Italian- Swiss- German artist, presenting a new installation, which is a surprise.

On the ending of the show on 7 July we organize a party with drinks and music as also discussions about future trips.
