ECHO: Ambitious Wschód's Project
In 2022, the gallery conceived a time-shared exhibition space ECHO in Cologne. This project was initiated by Bureau, Hot Wheels Athens, LC Queisser, Stereo, and Wschód.
The project is rooted in mutual confidence in collaboration. Embracing collaborative gallery models, ECHO curates its exhibitions collectively, featuring shows from each participating gallery as well as a series of group exhibitions involving all galleries.
In 2023, ECHO will host diez., Amsterdam; Kayokoyuki, Tokyo; Lodos, Mexico City and Wschód, Warsaw.
