Karpuchina Gallery is a private commercial gallery based in Prague. A complex biotope with a high level of artworks to fish for.
Karpuchina Gallery presents a carefully curated and diverse program with a progressive approach to each exhibition. The aim of the gallery is to foster the connection and engagement between contemporary art and the public and to present works by both emerging and established artists always in innovative visual language and in new, up to date contexts. The main 260m2 exhibition space of Karpuchina Gallery is located in the historical city center, in Rybná (Fish) Street. Additionally, KG has two more rhizome spaces: KG Aquarium- window gallery for young artists and KG Gate, dedicated to digital media arts, both also located in the center of Prague. Aside from the local agenda, the gallery actively participates in international affairs, with the purpose of bridging Czech art with the global art community and establishing gallery's featured artists in the broader ambience.
Sometimes you aim for a high number; sometimes, it is about waiting patiently for the right one. Observing, understanding, and being a part is what makes you enriched. Whether you are an aquatic enthusiast, an experienced fisherman, or at the beginning of your fishing journey - know that the good things come to those who capture them. To encapsulate our mission: Karpuchina Gallery is here to guide you with years of experience in fresh and salt waters and numerous extraordinary catches.
Founded in 2016 under the name White Pearl Gallery, the project of “experimental commercial gallery” began by bringing together a collective of artists and art lovers under the leadership of Alexandra Karpuchina, a graduate of Intermedia Art at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. For years, the gallery grew and reopened in 2020 under the current name in the heart of Prague. True to its location, in a historical building that in 1981 used to be a Fish Market, the gallery logo became a fish.
