ANNKA KULTYS GALLERY is a phygital art gallery (blend of physical and digital experiences), located in East London and founded in 2015 by Annka Kultys. In the short time since its opening, the gallery has emerged as a leading platform for a future generation of artists. With its ground-breaking representation of Ai-Da Robot since June 2020, ANNKA KULTYS GALLERY has become the first gallery in the world to represent a humanoid robot artist.
In April 2020 (during the lockdown), ANNKA KULTYS GALLERY launched [The art happens here], an online platform dedicated to showcasing digital art in its ‘natural habitat’. In May 2022, the gallery expanded it to ANNKA KULTYS PHYGITAL, one-of-a-kind virtual reality gallery for exhibiting, contextualising, and collecting NFTs — with its inaugural exhibition ‘Web 3.0 Aesthetics: In the Future Post-Hype of the NFTs’ presenting over 20 digital and crypto native artists whose works are sold through NFTs (drop until 31 December 2022). ANNKA KULTYS PHYGITAL provides a natural extension to the gallery’s offline programme, championing the millennial artists, and both analogue and digital art engaged with technology (and more recently with decentralised technologies).
Offline, the gallery exhibition programme (with a strong focus on LGBTQ+ artists, such as Stine Deja, Signe Pierce and Ziyang Wu among others) consists of six solo shows a year featuring mainly paintings, sculptures, and works on paper, augmented by occasional live performances. ANNKA KULTYS GALLERY also hosts two annual group exhibitions: one in January — next year CACOTOPIA 07, the seventh edition of gallery’s annual survey of leading emerging artists within the contemporary art space (enabling them to debut their works within the commercial sphere in London) will open on 5 January 2023; and one in July, in collaboration with a guest curator (aimed at highlighting new perspectives within the contemporary art world).
Annka Kultys is also a member of AWITA (the Association of Women in the Arts); a patron of Fluxus Art Projects, the Franco-British charitable association supporting artists in both countries under the umbrella of the French Ministry of Culture and the British Council of Arts; as well as an external board member at the Employability Advisory Board at the University of Westminster in London, assisting newly graduated art students find work in the art world.
