Gallery8 - Roma Contemporary Art Space
Gallery8 was launched by ERCF in february 2013. It is strategically located at Mátyás tér, the center of Budapest's 8th district, the area of the city, which is mostly populated by Roma inhabitants. Gallery8 aims to serve the Roma community: to enable and support the production, presentation and interpretation of Roma artworks. It is an intercultural space, where the experimentation, creation, collaboration, and discussion between Roma and non-Roma takes place and results in new works and solutions for a future in peaceful coexistence. Gallery8 puts emphasis on investing in the capacities of young Roma artists, presenters, managers and entrepreneurs to help them to succeed, to learn, to be accepted positively by broad audiences, to become more knowledgeable and actively engaged in networking and collaboration in Europe and beyond. Gallery 8 aims to motivate the development of innovative projects and experimental cross-disciplinary work of young Roma. It is the space of new ideas, discourses, and trends in Roma contemporary art. www.gallery8.org
