International cooperation has been boosted by Photon's presence in Vienna. Galerie Photon opened in 2013, and since April 2014 organises exhibitions in the vibrant cultural lofts space within the former Ankerbrot bread factory, starting off with the Perspectives of the City exhibition that presented a selection of a dozen of Slovene photographers and video artists.

Photonic Moments – Month of Photography

Inspired by events that took place in 2004 in a number of European cities under the name "European Month of Photography" and with the purpose of expanding its project "Photonic Moments", Photon Gallery initiated the "Ljubljana Month of Photography". From 2006 until 2008 the annual festival, involving a great number of exhibitions and accompanying events in the Slovenia capital, focused on presenting contemporary trends in photography from different countries of South-eastern Europe and the broader international scene. After the 2008 edition, the festival's board decided to switch to a biennial format, and fused both manifestations. Today the Photonic Moments – Month of Photography is a leading festival of contemporary photography in the region, featuring a number of relevant internationally-based exhibitions and a strong accompanying programme.

Special projects

In 2007 the Photon Gallery introduced the programme Video in Progress which presents contemporary video art. The focus of the first two years was on video artists from the region has shifted to more conceptual criteria of selection. In 2011 the event grew into a festival.

Since 2008 the exhibition Photonic Luminatic is an overview introducing a selection of Slovene artists who use photography and video for research and creative endeavour in the broader context of the visual arts. The curator of the whole exhibition is Dejan Sluga, director of the Photon Gallery, while selection of video art was done by Vesna Bukovec and Metka Zupanič. The first edition focused on the phenomenon of the "new documentary photography" within contemporary artistic practice with an aim to show how photography continues to become increasingly relevant as a completely independent artistic medium, and it is additionally evermore used as a tool for the presentation of various multi- and intermedia projects.

Video Evenings by Kolektiva Institute have been organised in Photon Gallery featuring monthly screen video selections prepared by various invited artists, curators, institutions, associations, and festivals.

Sales service and international art fairs

Photon Gallery represents almost 40 national and international artists whose available works are documented on the gallery's website. The gallery promotes its artists at international art fairs using the strategy of a curated presentation based on a thematic frame.

Photon Gallery also regularly attends art fairs in Vienna (Viennafair), Berlin (Berliner Liste) and in 2010, Photon participated for the first time on Paris Photo.
