Our Mission 

Povos aims to act as a resource for all through carefully curated show production, free resources for emerging artists, and direct-to-community projects centered around the arts and education.

Founded in 2020 by Chicago artist and art educator Lucca Colombelli, Povos was originally designed to be an exclusively online platform, however through odd strokes of luck and good fortune we found a home in Chicago in 2022 at 2000 N Milwaukee. In 2023, the gallery expanded to a 2300 sq ft exhibition space at 1541 W Chicago ave.

We enter year 3 launching a second exhibition space, “Povos Downtown” at 600 W Van Buren. In April, we will also announce our new advisory board, and make our artfair debut at EXPO/Frieze Chicago 2024. We look forward to a year of diverse programming in emerging contemporary art, with an emphasis on local and international artists. We also welcome aboard Gallery Director Winston Guo.
