Edge to Edge is a ViCA initiative that puts into action our policy of continual push to collaborate with artists and institutions across borders. In the first Edge to Edge show throughout 2019 we showed American and Estonian art in the US in our gallery, then did the same in Estonia over the summer. Each country being one edge of western civilization. Then we turned to our southern neighbor, and used the border as a metaphor for Edge to Edge, and brought 12 Mexican artists to the U.S. for the first time. In another participating gallery (in Venice, CA) closed for during the outbreak, we’ll install 12 artists from Japan in a few days, then show the work virtually online. In 2021 (postponed from this coming May) 12 galleries in our building will be hosting an equal number of galleries or more from Berlin. What ideas do you have? How can we help? We have a great space and we’d love to see you here.

BERLIN-WEEEKLY was founded in June 2010 as an art project space by Stefanie Seidl. The 4,5, meter high room is a double-glazed former gateway for horse-drawn carriages in the historic Jewish Scheunenviertel in Berlin Mitte. The showcase space, which is illuminated until late at night, can be regarded as a kind of public stage on which the artists can stage an installation, representative of their work. The potential of the public showcase is to reach a wide, diverse audience. As a result of its one-sided orientation to the street BERLIN-WEEEKLY thus functions as an artistic intervention in public space. The exhibitions do not change weekly (as the name suggests and was initially planned), but every month. Though the installations are clearly visible from the outside until late at night, the room itself is always closed except for the regular openings and for special events and presentations. The interested viewer can get more information on the website with photos and brief informations about the respective installations and a direct link to the artist’s webpage. BERLIN WEEKLY is aimed primarily at artists who work predominantly sculptural and spatial. The artists have complete freedom regarding the concept, content and realization of their installation, […]

P8 cooperative gallery was established in 2008 at 8 Poriya street in Jaffa. The power of synergy is at the heart of the group’s approach, stimulating it to advance and progress within the artistic sphere, utilizing personal resources as curating, production and promotion collaboratively. Naturally, the use of personal resources dictates sophisticated and humble conduct. As a non-profit organization, any income (from sales for example) is reinvested in the gallery, either for maintenance or for special projects. The group is on a constant search for new modes of action and collaborations that would be beneficial, original and innovative. The gallery holds exhibitions of the members as well as other artists and curators. We are always open to cooperation and new ideas. We encourage artists, galleries, curators and other individuals or institutions to send us proposals and suggestions for collaborative work in and outside the gallery.

B’Art ContemporarySupporting contemporary art in Kyrgyzstan through various projects, exhibitions, workshops, and more.
During Soviet times, arts and culture were promoted, financed and used by the state and the communist party as an instrument to underpin the state, their party values and ideology. Cultural content had to align with ideological propaganda and be broadly understood by the general public. It also had to instill into people a feeling of being a part of the USSR family alongside its objectives and achievements. With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the concomitant economic dip and scarcity of state resources in the newly independent Kyrgyz Republic, the arts and culture community and Kyrgyz Union of Artists not only lost its financing but more importantly its role in society and the state. Twenty years after independence, like other newly independent states, the multi-ethnic Kyrgyz Republic is still struggling with a new national identity appealing to all constituent parts of the country. There is also a lack of understanding of citizen responsibility in a pluralistic market economy. Б’Art Contemporary was founded in 2007 by Shaarbek Amankul as an artistic research project and mobile art practice aimed at developing and promoting contemporary art in Kyrgyzstan as an alternative to the traditional view of and approach to art. VISION: […]

ERGO Collective is a creative platform founded on the premise of collaboration. We approach collective creativity as mode of encouraging dialogue and triggering stimulating ideas on the critique and collapse of borders between Art’s disciplines. Our team is formed by permanent and guest artists and other curious people from various places and spaces. Our journey began in a nomadic manner with an emphasis on site specific shows. Today ERGO occupies a physical space in Athens making its first steps as an artist-run-space. Our new space allows the collective to be more spontaneous on realizing projects, ideas and activities. To have a home, means to be a host and therefore ERGO is welcoming creatives from around the world to share and propose ideas on exhibitions, performances, workshops, symposia, screenings or any other intriguing event. ERGO Collective (Non-profit Organization) was initiated in September 2017.

From 2010, W is the collective of artists and the art studio dedicated to working, meeting, research, experimentation and diffusion of contemporary art.
