Open Studios at WINZAVOD

Center for Contemporary Art Winzavod launched the Open Studios project. For the first time in Moscow, on the basis of one of the leading Russian art institutions, a modern workshop appeared. CSC Winzavod provides young artists with a comfortable working space so that they can create literally a few steps from the best Moscow galleries of contemporary art and the opportunity to immerse themselves in a professional art environment.

"Open Studios" are developing the direction of supporting young artists and complementing the idea of ​​the projects of the Center for Contemporary Art Winzavod START (since 2008) and portfolios-revues in Russian art and creative universities (2017). For beginners talented artists selected by the expert council, participation in the project is an opportunity to make the first steps in the creative and commercial sphere under the guidance of experienced professionals. For the viewer - the opportunity to observe the process of creating works of art, which in the future, perhaps, will decorate the best museums in the country. For collectors - to get acquainted with future stars at the stage of their formation.

President of the Foundation for Support of Contemporary Art Winzavod Sofia Trotsenko: "At the winery, from the very first days, there were workshops of famous and beginning Russian artists: Oleg Kulik, Misha Most, Valeria Chtaka, Cyril Who, Yevgenia Antufieva and many others. The "Open Studios" project opens the future of Russian art and gives young artists the chance to become a part of this tradition, help to integrate into the professional community. We create a thoughtful cultural and educational system, which is built on the many years of experience of Winzavod and expert support of leading gallery owners and art figures. Our team believes that participating in the project will lead to the formation of a new generation of successful Russian artists."
