There is a particular little place in Prishtina, in Arberi specifically, which I quite like.
Right on the corner where Ahmet Krasniqi and Johan Gete streets meet, there are two large windows which showcase paintings from Kosovan artists. DADA Art gallery is probably the smallest gallery in Prishtina, measuring just 18m2. For the sake of transparency, you should know that I am very closely related to the person who owns the gallery.
The gallery came into being as a result of a singular drive to support Kosovan artists, particularly young ones, through providing them with an alternative exhibition space; supporting the development of a market for art was another. As such, the gallery is both a selling and showing space. Despite its size, the gallery accommodates a largish sofa in which you can sit and take in the sight of the paintings which line the walls.
The quirk of the gallery is its back door leading to the garden (privately owned) equipped with a bar, although the garden part is open only when there are exhibitions. Another fun fact: the designer of the logo won a European award for the design of the gallery’s logo.
The opening hours are not fixed, although with an hour’s notice you can gain access to the gallery. The visit to the gallery can be combined with dinner at the local fish restaurant, just opposite the gallery, or with a heftier undertaking at the Comandante Markos restaurant, which is a 15-minute walk away.
