Exhibitions at the Fogo Island Gallery feature new work by artists and curators who have participated in the Fogo Island Arts international residency program.
Fogo Island Inn features a contemporary “white cube” art gallery on the first floor. In collaboration with Fogo Island Arts, the gallery showcases the works of selected artists who have completed residencies on Fogo Island through Fogo Island Arts. The goal of the gallery is to provide diverse audiences – local and global – with opportunities to engage with contemporary artworks informed by the specificities of place.
Thus far, Fogo Island Gallery has presented solo exhibitions by Kate Newby (New Zealand), Zin Taylor (Canada), Silke Otto-Knapp (Vienna), Hannah Rickards (England), Edgar Leciejewski (Germany), Leander Schönweger (Italy), Wilfrid Almendra (France), Augustas Serapinas (Lithuania), Marlene Creates (Canada), Isa Melsheimer (Germany), Ieva Epnere (Latvia), Jumana Manna (US/PS), and Brenda Draney (Canada). Exhibitions in the gallery are accompanied by a publication focusing on each artist’s work, produced by Fogo Island Arts and Berlin’s Sternberg Press.
