FISK GALLERY MISSIONSince 2014, FISK Gallery has operated as a project gallery space for artists and designers alike. Our hope is to create an experimental place for artists to create and display a series of work off screen, in a physical space, and engage with the community at an opening night. We invite our artists to cover multiple facets, create products, and take over every surface of our gallery. Often commercial artists working outside of their normal practice.
HISTORY OF FISK GALLERY
FOUNDED BYBijan Berahimi & Michael Spoljaric
FISK GALLERY LOS ANGELESOnce upon a time located on a quiet street in Portland, FISK Gallery now has a new home for spotlighting contemporary art, off of bustling Glendale Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA. Same name, same values, different location. We strive to give artists the platform to express their artistic abilities and connect with the community, and have fun while doing it. Although we couldn’t do it all without a little help from our good friends, Bad People. Bad People is a collective studio space, pop up shop, and more located behind the gallery. When not hosting FISK artists, Bad People welcomes social and art events.
FISK GALLERY PORTLAND V.1From 2014–16, at 3636B N. Mississippi Ave, FISK Gallery presented fifteen shows from artists all over the country and world. Artist works were presented in many forms, including: painting, sculpture, illustration, video and performance art. Operated out of the quaint space at the back of Beacon Sound record store on North Mississippi Avenue, FISK Gallery was a neighborhood pillar and hub of contemporary art, music, and fun. Officially declared dead at the beginning of 2016.
