Fragment gallery is a Moscow-based contemporary art gallery, focused on promoting artists regardless of their age, gender, nationality or race. Artistic practice of most of them ties around issues of modern world, from social and economic to political. The gallery was founded in December 2016.
The gallery actively works to develop international cooperation. In September 2020, the gallery pioneered the first gallery-sharing initiative in Russia called Open Circle, featuring «The New (Sur)Realism» exhibition. Despite challenging times, the first exhibition was held in Moscow connecting five galleries: Temnikova & Kasela (Tallinn), Raster (Warsaw), Capsule (Shanghai), Lubov (New York) and Fragment (Moscow).
In addition to exhibition activities, the gallery regularly hosts an educational program (lectures, master classes and artist talks). Annually, international open calls for artists and curators are organized. In August 2020, Fragment Gallery announced an open call for LGBTQIA+ artists and curators as a part of a non-profit project, Center Stage, along with being one of its founders. The open call winners will be able to organize exhibitions in Moscow and New York, publish zines and get grants for participation in art residencies. Jury members include Antonio Sergio Bessa (director of curatorial programs at The Bronx Museum of the Arts), Lee Pivnik (founder of the Institute of Queer Ecology) and others.
Exhibitions and fair participation of the gallery is regularly featured in international press, such as The Art Newspaper, Artforum, ARTNews, Financial Times, Forbes, etc.
