Open Studios

The Open Studios project is a platform that combines the principles of a workshop, residence and art school based on one of the leading Russian art institutions.


The project was launched by the Foundation for the Support of Contemporary Art "WINZAVOD" within the framework of the strategic direction New Names. It offers a modern space for creativity and work, an up-to-date educational program, the opportunity to integrate into the professional environment.


Open studios are developing the direction of supporting young artists and complementing the idea of ​​projects of the Center for Contemporary Art Winzavod START (since 2008) and portfolio reviews in Russian art and creative universities (2017). For aspiring talented artists, selected by an expert council, participating in a project is an opportunity to take their first steps in the creative and commercial fields under the guidance of experienced professionals.


For viewers, Open Studios are an opportunity to observe the process of creating works of art, which, in the future, will probably adorn the best museums in the country. For collectors, this project is a great chance to meet future stars at the stage of their formation. Open studios occupy the premises of the legendary Aidan Gallery. Artists work in a common space, a concept developed by the architects of the Project Eleven bureau.
