Artist collective and gallery
a-space is an artist-run gallery and artist collective that supports aspiring new artists from around the world. Our platform enables young artists to participate in international art fairs, solo and group exhibitions in Switzerland and abroad .We at a-space believe in trustworthy partnership. We offer artists support in a variety of practical ways, make them a vital part of the gallery and embed them in our network.
a-space was founded by artist Roy Hofer in 2012. Our exhibitions are curated by Nadja Borer, Roy Hofer, Genya Krikova and Bettina Costa, among others.
a-space collaborates not only with artists, but also with other artist-run galleries such as Paper Gallery from Manchester, ARTnSHELTER Tokyo, EMERGE Lisboa, Ebury Bridge London and Espacio Alexandra Santander.
a-space organizes exhibitions in art spaces in Switzerland, at art fairs and in partner galleries within Switzerland and abroad. A detailed list of our activities can be found here.
Our vision is to create a vivid space of sharing and collaborating. While today’s art world so often puts the individual ego in the centre, we as artists greatly appreciate being able to multiply our our connections, pass on our experiences and give advice to each other.
