AKKA Project


AKKA (A Kostic Khachatourian Art) Project, established in Dubai in 2016 and Venice 2019,  is a commercial gallery and project space that represents and supports artists from the African continent and its diaspora, increasing opportunities for its artists to introduce their work to new geographies.
With two galleries in Dubai and Venice, AKKA Project brings a dynamic new dimension to the art world. The gallery is deeply committed to exploring the African art scene and its kaleidoscopic diversity. At AKKA Project, we provide primarily emerging artists the opportunity to share their work internationally and start conversations to transcend cultural boundaries.
We strive to promote contemporary African art by creating unforgettable exhibitions and events to inspire, transform and connect people. At AKKA Project, we offer a fresh perspective on the region’s historical, social, and cultural elements through the stories of contemporary African artists.
AKKA mission is to inspire curiosity, creativity, and learning through contemporary African art by supporting African artists and making them accessible to international art communities.
