NK Gallery was founded in 2012 by Nadya Kotova. Originally from St. Petersburg, Ms. Kotova wanted to establish a cross-cultural bridge between her country of origin (Russia) and her country of residence (Belgium). Her goal was to help highlight the Russian contemporary art scene in the rest of the world through exhibitions at the gallery in Antwerp and Knokke (BE) and the participation in art fairs around the globe (Cosmoscow, Contemporary Istanbul, Art Dubai, Art Paris, Art London). In 2019, NK gallery has opened the second space in Moscow, namely Art Cube, increasing promotion of Russian and Belgian artists in Russia. Six years on, the gallery has established a strong reputation both in Belgium and abroad. The exhibition program consists of six shows per year, ranging from group to solo exhibitions and combining Belgian and Russian artists with other strong voices of the international contemporary art scene.
NK Gallery hopes to further position itself as the cross-cultural bridge between Russia and Belgium, helping to develop the interaction and dynamism between artists, collectors, curators and other art professionals from both regions.
Artists presented at Cosmoscow 2019: Didier Mahieu, Gosha Ostretsov, Taisia Korotkova.
