Kashya Hilderbrand founded her gallery in Geneva in 2001. Since 2004 the gallery has been located in the center of Zurich, featuring a large exhibition space. The main focus of the gallery lies in its dedication to the support and representation of an international group of young, emerging artists through solo and group shows.
The galleries artists challenge pre-conceived notions of nationality and cultural identity, creating an environment in which established norms become blurred and characterizations from seemingly contrasting cultures occupy the same visual space. This juxtaposition leads to a simultaneous renunciation and acceptance of the traditional and the contemporary, creating an environment that is in constant flux. Region, politics, nationality and culture are treated as the foundation of identity, depicted and disseminated to varying degrees. Through painting, collage, sculpture, photography and installation work the artists convey the contestations of the contemporary political landscape.
The Middle Eatern artists represented at the galleyr include Khaled Al-Saai, Osama Esid, Sissi Farassat, Shadi Ghadirian, Nija Mahdaoui, Farhad Moshiri, Ahmad Moualla, and Marwan Sahmarani.
