“Friend of a Friend” is a gallery–share initiative launched in 2018 with editions in Warsaw, Berlin. Prague 2019 edition, co-organised by Stereo and Wschód, will involve eleven galleries based in Prague, who will share their exhibition spaces with fourteen international gallery guests. One of the aims of the project is to create a different model for the presentation of contemporary art, to establish new networks within the Czech art scene and to enable local audiences to interact with the works of international artists, whose works were often not exhibited in Czech so far.
