Zissou Tasseff-Elenkoff is the founder and owner of FugScreens Studios, partner and initiating company behind Galerie F. Operating a fully functional commercial printmaking studio and having been raised in Paris and London, Zissou seeks to further join a Chicago art community with the international art world. He sees Galerie F as a unique opportunity to present accessible, exciting and varied work to both a local and international audience.
Their mission is as follows:
Opening July 2012, Galerie F presents itself to the city of Chicago as the first open-door gallery space. Fully functional six days of the week, all day long, with no appointments required. We seek to contextualize printmaking and street art in the contemporary art scene while promoting local and international artists. Our community, and our city, are essential to our mission.
Come in, browse through our print archives, check out our latest exhibitions, or sign up for screen printing classes. Offering an extensive and affordable collection of gig posters, art posters, and other collectibles for your browsing pleasure.
The funds you donate will directly support the space’s opening and each dollar will go to the construction and preparation of our Logan Square location. They hope to be able to share the final product with you all in July 2012. By supporting Galerie F, you are helping to create a dynamic, accessible gallery retail space in the heart of Chicago.
They have several levels of pledges that will lend a great deal of support for this project.
