This distinctive art company is dedicated to enhancing the contemporary art experience for artists, collectors and viewers in and outside the gallery setting. Dab Art embraces the relentless evolution of contemporary art by featuring experimental artists, highlighting innovative techniques and utilizing technological advances.

Today it is one of the key exhibition spots in the city as well as the meeting point and hub – a hybrid place, that would slip away from any rigid definitions and appropriations. FFTN widely collaborates with local independent art spaces as well as institutions (i.e. National Center for Contemporary Art). The projects were supported by The Foundation of Vladimir Smirnov and Konstantin Sorokin, Austrian Cultural Forum, Pro Helvetia Moscow.
