Portfolio Review

Significant statistics
The Portfolio Review project was implemented in 2017-2018 with the support of SIBUR as a special project within the framework of the Moscow International Biennale of Young Art by ROSIZO and the State Center for Contemporary Art and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA). The project will be rerun in March 2021.

The project’s key goal is to discover and support aspiring young artists from Russia’s regions. In 2017-2018 the project had a base in Tobolsk welcoming artists from Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Tomsk, Tyumen and Nizhegorodskaya Oblast, as well as Perm Krai. In 2021 the Portfolio Review will be hosted by Moscow.
