FFTN is an artist-run space in St. Petersburg, Russia. FFTN is located in 4,5 metres of the former buffet in a building belonging to the local Artists' Union. The project was launched in 2016 as a result of frustration from the local art-scene and became an attempt to overcome the prevailing "white cube" discourse. Today it is one of the key exhibition spots in the city as well as the meeting point and hub - a hybrid place, that would slip away from any rigid definitions and appropriations. FFTN widely collaborates with local independent art spaces as well as institutions (i.e. National Center for Contemporary Art). In 2019 its projects were supported by The Foundation of Vladimir Smirnov and Konstantin Sorokin, Austrian Cultural Forum.
