Congratulations and best continuation.

Gallery Fifty One Celebrates 15 Years

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Open in June of 2000, Gallery Fifty One now stands at the opening of its 15th art season.  The gallery, located at Zirkstraat 20, Belgium, is the only gallery dedicated to photography in Belgium.  Since opening it has remained dedicated to exposing work by emerging photographers alongside established photographers of the 20th and 21st centuries.  In more recent years the gallery has put photography into broader dialogue through exhibitions that pair the media with other works on paper.  This side-by-side comparison is intended to, as the gallery states, "emphasize the artistic gaze of photography."  In the past year the gallery opened a secondary exhibition space, Fifty One Too; this venue gives the gallery an additional platform from which to share its vision.  Congratulations Gallery Fifty One; wishing you another successful 15 years and more.  

Notable forthcoming exhibitions and events at the gallery include:

Michael Wolf
New series Hong Kong Flora & Trilogy and Shadows in Paris
December 5 - January 24, 2015

Vivian Maier
New Unpublished Images
December 5 - January 24, 2015

Saul Leiter
2015 exhibition dates not yet announced.
