The FOG Gallery, founded in 2020, serves as a platform for a remarkable community of artists in the field of photography and new media. This fact inspired the gallery’s name – the acronym of ‘photo gallery’ in Slovak. The focus of the gallery, intended as a sister project to the photographic festival OFF Bratislava, is centred on the promotion, valuation and sale of contemporary artworks by eastern European artists on the international market. As part of this mission, it actively creates opportunities for artists’ creative development and exchange of ideas.
As well as staging at least four exhibitions per year, regular curatorial projects, and the publication of exhibition catalogues, the gallery aims to raise the profiles of innovative talents from this region in the broader international context. Currently, the FOG Gallery is building a portfolio of represented artists with the aim to attend leading international art fairs.
