Friend of a Friend (FOAF) Prague 2019 emphasizes cooperation between galleries, the interconnection between local and international art scenes and the importance of a dialogue with the general public. FOAF Prague 2019 was staged in nine local contemporary art galleries and institutions that opened up their venues to international gallery guests, to friends and friends of friends.
Friend of a Friend, launched in Warsaw in 2018 as an international gallery sharing initiative. From the beginning, FOAF aims to establish new networks, to exchange ideas with guests – gallery colleagues, artists, curators, art critics and collectors from abroad. And to enable local audiences to interact with the works of international artists whose practices have not yet been extensively, if at all, exhibited in the city where the event takes place.
