RKG’s Third Anniversary show is a celebration in threes: years, vision, space. Over 30 artists make up the show.

Featured are: 5 Albanian artists on the left wall- Blerta Kambo (Photography, Albania) Klodiana Alia (Photography, New York) Ëndri Dani, (Photogrphy, Albania), Olson Lamaj, (Albania, Video) Remijon Pronja, (Albania, Video).

And 5 Italian artists on the right wall featured are: Francesco Messina ( Painting, Milano, Italy) Silvia Mei ( Painting, Milano, Italy), Andrea Fiorino,( Painting, Milano, Italy) Silvia Argiolas ( Painting, Milano, Italy) Adriano Annino ( Painting, Milano, Italy)

The Albanian works display an edged society- prison rooms, ghettos, enclosed persona, where one is held in intimate stasis. Amidst the sorrow, these works evade distopia with a gentle eye. Similarly, that is where the Italian works dwell too, but this time in the realm of fantasy, oering occult visions of strange rituals and the face of a long scarred journey.
