HAYP Pop Up Gallery started as an experimental project in December, 2014, and became an official N.G.O. as of December 2015. Since our start, we have curated and coordinated over ten exhibitions within Armenia (Yerevan, Gyumri, Byurakan, Orgov) as well as a site-specific project for the European Cultural Centre at the Venice Biennale 2017. Our mission is to support emerging artists through an engaging and alternative platform that creates meaningful connections amongst art, audiences and unexpected spaces.
