Alisa is a new contemporary art gallery founded by curator and art manager Alisa Bagdonaite, chief curator of the Zarya Center for Contemporary Art (Vladivostok), who has curated and overseen many exhibitions and projects with a view to support artists and foster the Russian contemporary art scene.
Since its opening in 2021, the gallery has organized more than ten projects by young Russian artists from different cities working in different media. Most of the gallery's projects are debut.
Alongside emerging artists, Alisa Gallery works with mid-career artists, already established in the professional community. It places great emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration and partnerships with institutions.
The gallery's mission includes increasing the presence and visibility of Russian artists at international art fairs, stimulating the demand for mid-range contemporary art, and promoting Russian artists in the international art market.
At the heart of Alisa Gallery lies the concept of a gallery as a sustainable and highly ethical platform that provides a performance incentive for contemporary artists, curators, and other creatives.
