сцена/szena gallery was opened in September 2018 with the Oleg Kulik’s exhibition called “Our Mother”.
We are a young gallery working with artists from the post-Soviet countries. The Calvert Journal coined a special term – the NEW EAST – to define this new cultural space of the Balkans, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
At Szena, we do not organize collective exhibitions, and there are several reasons for it. The main one is that we want to provide a forum for the artist’s and not curator’s statement. As we deem important to establish viable long-term relationships with the artists, the list of those we collaborate with is relatively short. Currently, it includes Anton Kushaev, Igor Samolet, Darya Gitmanovich and Alexey Taruts.
Thanks to Sample, we are now able to share with you a collection of our artists’ works. It has no particular subject or timeframe but is compiled with personal attention to every artist and his or her style.
