FK Gallery was the first not-for-profit exhibition space for contemporary photography in Latvia exhibiting new work by Latvian and international artists as well as organizing artist's talks, discussions, and public lectures. FK Gallery was established in cooperation with Contemporary art center kim?.
The letters "FK" stand for Foto Kvartals - photography magazine which I had founded in 2006 and served as its editor-in-chief until December 2010. This dedicated not-for-profit exhibition space for photography complemented the educational work undertaken by the magazine. Its mission was to provide a forum for Latvian photographers, historians, and theorists.
During eight months in 2010, FK Galerija presented the latest work by the following Latvian photographers: Alnis Stakle, Iveta Vaivode & Aleksander Gronsky, Raimo Lielbriedis, creative group Orbita, Ieva Epnere, and Reinis Hofmanis, as well as a solo show by the US-based photographer Aaron Schuman.
