The Rooster Gallery | Vilnius

Launched by young cultural managers in 2008 with moveable exhibitions and short-term artistic events, the gallery retained its mobility and non-institutional nature even after it acquired the legal status in 2011. The Rooster Gallery does not have a permanent exhibition space and presents artists’ works in ever-new venues, looking for alternative exhibition forms that would emphasise the work of a concrete artist and suggest new means of reading an artwork. The gallery’s exhibitions have brought to light new spaces, lofts and interiors of historical buildings that usually are off-limits to the public. Since the very beginning of its activity The Rooster Gallery has been working to achieve the envisioned goals – presenting the work by young painters, discovering promising artists, representing the hottest trends of contemporary painting and promoting young painting. The experience accumulated in working exclusively with young artists allows the gallery to promote the career of the represented artists since the early stages. The gallery’s dynamic international activity and wide network has contributed to the international recognition of several young Lithuanian painters. The work of the gallery’s artists was represented in major art fairs: Art Dubai, YIA Paris, Art Moscow, Art International Zurich, London’s Global Art Fair, ArtVilnius and others. Painters represented by the gallery participate in the most important events and competitions of Lithuanian contemporary art (many of them are finalists and winners of the Young Painter Prize and participants of biennials and quadrennials) and exhibit their works in prestigious institutions (National Gallery of Art, Contemporary Art Centre). Works by the gallery’s artists are part of the collections of the Modern Art Centre, Akzo Nobel and private collections.

Factory-Art Gallery | Berlin

Factory-Art gallery was born in Trieste_Italy in December 2006. In October 2009 it moved into a new space in Berlin. The gallery space itself is very interesting, no windows and fully isolated from the outside world, where nothing can distract the visitors. Someone called the space: "A rabbit-warren of connected rooms featuring low ceilings,exposed brick walls and piping, this space is to provide more rustic alternative to the polish of a lot of galleries and a visit here is as much about the setting as the exhibitions themselves" [...] Through the work of the artists and this magical space we try to open the visitors an unprecedented vision to give them the choice whether to return to an always monotonous life or to be available to a spiritual awakening that will lead them to "discover how deep the rabbit hole goes"
. The gallery's mission is to promote the artistic research, to increase the communication between the artist's project, to put them in comparison and to lay the foundation for an extended dialogue. The contemporary art offers us the possibility to see the world with different and unusual eyes and allows us to understand the time that we are live in. Behind the creation of engaged artists by Factor-Art you can often find awkward offspring alternative new art. With its works the Factory-Art gallery hopes to contribute to the cultural growth that countersigns every evolved society.
