START Project

Special project to support young artists "START"

Personal exhibition is the best way for a young artist to declare himself. Every month "START" enables one author to show his project at WINZAVOD and opens new names in Russian contemporary art.

Graduates of the "START" project open their personal exhibitions in galleries, participate in group projects in Russia and abroad, become laureates of awards in the field of art. Since the launch of the site in 2008, more than 50 solo exhibitions of young authors have been held. Among them: Evgeny Antufyev, Tanya Pioniker, Aslan Gaisumov, Tatyana Akhmetgaliyeva, Zina Isupova, Lisa Bobkova and many others.

"START" conducts a portfolio-review in the cities of Russia and cooperates with residencies all over the world. START artists participate in international art residences in France, Germany, Italy and other countries.

The "START" site is not only an exhibition space, but also a venue for discussions, round tables and performances. Young art is concentrated here.
