Encounter was founded in 2013 as a sustainable alternative to the traditional gallery model.
We run an international ‘moving’ exhibition program curating academically rigorous and immersive projects. We work closely with a core group of leading emerging and established contemporary artists helping to develop their practices through creative projects, critical exposure and sales. Since its inception, Encounter has focused on building dynamic relationships with both new and established collectors, institutions and foundations who are dedicated to supporting diverse contemporary art practices.
Encounter is committed to exploring the role of artist and curator outside the gallery walls. This has resulted in creative collaborations in the public realm with some of the world’s leading architects and developers.
