WHO WE ARE
We were founded in Moscow by The Council for the Development of Foreign Trade and International and Economic Relations — who cares about Foundation program — with the aim of providing a space to showcase the most exceptional modern and contemporary art of our time, to discover and to buy. We launched with 36 galleries in Moscow and will grow steadily over the following shows; to our Miami show in December 2019 we'll accept around 130 galleries and 20,000 attendees.
We provide an outstanding modern art. We have embraced an international and contemporary outlook with new galleries from around the world, expanding our offer. These now make up 85% of our exhibitors, and continue to grow. We nurture collecting at all levels from prints and editions to major works by internationally renowned artists. We provide platforms for nurturing talents too. We host artist to receive acclaim early in their career as well as established names.
We know that our audience seeks to get innovative and interactive ways to get acquainted with art, so we continue to develop our lectures, tours, screenings and curated spaces, which are included in four shows in 2019. Our tour about contemporary art - World Art Roadshow - has features as: large-scale installations, solo shows, group displays and also includes Public ART talk and curated section, intended to encourage and foster relationships on a global scale. We have also selected a regional museum partner to work with each year, which creates a unique exhibition and enables our visitors to experience the heritage, quality and significance of regional collections.
