The gallery was founded by YARAT! Contemporary Art Space, a not-for-profit contemporary art organisation, as part of their commitment to support the infrastructure for art in Azerbaijan. The gallery is commercial but not-for-profit purposes. YAY (meaning “share” in Azerbaijani) shares all proceeds from sales of work between the artists and YARAT.The gallery`s artistic agenda is focused on showing the most talented and promising young artists as well as more established artists from Azerbaijan and abroad.
