Fotografia Gallery is at the epicenter of Tbilisi’s vibrant photography scene. Fotografia opened in 2017, and quickly became one of Tbilisi’s must-see destinations. Curated by visual artist, Giorgi Rodionov, the gallery hosts the work of well-known local and international photographers, including Mariam Sitchinava and Louisa Chalatashvili. As well as emerging talents that are pushing the boundaries of photography in Georgia.

Most double as photographers and are working on a variety of interesting creative projects. Fotografia also sells older film cameras and professional films like Kodak and Ilford.

Project Artbeat’s mobile container gallery might be one of the most unique art spaces in the Caucasus. For as much as we love their roaving container exhibits, we are also very excited that they have recently opened a permanent location in Tbilisi’s old town. The gallery is well-curated and features work from some of the most acclaimed artists from the region.

4. PATARA GALLERY

Patara (პატარა) in Georgian literally means ‘small.’ While it’s true this is Tbilisi’s smallest gallery, what it lacks in size it makes up for in creativity. Recently featured by The Guardian, Patara Gallery is tucked away in a pedestrian underpass underneath Rose Revolution Square. Don’t miss it.

 

5. ARTAREA
