THE GALLERY IS THE RESULT OF A collaboration between two Azerbaijani friends - Afsana Tahirova and Elnara Shikhlinskaya - and curator Mara Alves.

Tahirova worked on government-related projects in her home country before she moved to London to pursue a degree at the London Business School. Shikhlinskaya’s husband was also studying there, and the three remained firm friends.
