SOSka gallery-lab

SOSka Gallery-Lab (2005 – 2012) was established as an artist-run space upon the successful self-capture of a one-storied house in Kharkiv. The gallery worked as DIY platform by combining the functions of an exhibition space, experimental laboratory, and communications center. As stated by the founders, the gallery’s central mission was to develop local young talent in the arts community, which was lacking in institutional support. Over the course of its existence the gallery-lab became a hotspot for artistic activities and hosted a regular program of events including exhibitions, screenings, lectures and music concerts.
