The Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation (ESKFF), founded in 2009, is an alternative channel for connecting artists, curators, collectors, galleries, cultural institutions, and the public through exhibitions and programming based on private contemporary art collections.
Dedicated to expanding our understanding of contemporary art, the ESKFF exhibits collections usually hidden from the public eye, enriched by programs that include lecture series by artists and collectors, in order to bridge the gaps within the arts community.
Inspired by her personal experience as a collector and entrepreneur, Eileen S. Kaminsky established the foundation to encourage artists, curators, collectors, galleries and cultural institutions to exchange ideas. With the ongoing support of international professionals and scholars, the foundation has established itself as an innovative showcase for contemporary art.
