The Art & Space Gallery was set up in 2009 and launched its first exhibition in 2010 in Munich.
Emma Mailova, director of the gallery, dedicates her work exclusively to the representation and support of contemporary artists. The blue-chip exposition space serves as an ideal career forum for emerging and well-known artists to present their work to the large public audience.
The first exhibition held in the gallery was dedicated to the work of Russian artist Kirill Chelushkin, who is well known for his monumental large-scale graphite drawings and video-mapping sculptures. Chelushkin’s works are kept in the famous collections such as Bernard Arnault (Louis Vuitton Espace), Simon de Pury, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne,
the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow as well as the Itabashi Art Museum in Tokyo.
The gallery positions itself as a forum for the encounter of Eastern and Western artists as well as a go-between for prominent and young ambitious talents. Emma Mailova properly selects artists who distinguish themselves through their highly individual creations and life stories as well as their compelling approaches to art itself.
Art & Space Gallery was the official partner of the 54th Art Biennale in Venice in 2011 with the project «I MISS MY ENEMIES". A huge video-sculpture UPSIDE-DOWN CITY by Kirill Chelushkin as well as his two large-scale drawings UPSIDE- DOWN CITY 1 and LAST SUPPER were to convey the main idea of the project.
Art & Space Gallery participated in the Art Moscow Fairs in 2011, 2012, 2013, showcasing large-scale European and Russian contemporary art from Germany, United Kingdom, Italy and Russia. Most of the presented artists are frequent participants of the Venice Art Biennale. Among them are: Kirill Chelushkin, Gianfranco Meggiato, Konstantin Khudyakov.
Art & Space Gallery participated in the Unpainted New media art fair 2014 in Munich with the artists Konstantin Khudyakov, Russia and Frieder Weiss, Germany, in the ART PARIS Art Fair 2015, in the Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong 2015.
