The RNA Foundation is a cultural platform that aims at
promoting established as well as up and coming Russian artists and creative
individuals. Founded by Victoria Golembiovskaya, the RNA utilizes its wide
reaching connections to provide support and exposure to artists, facilitating their
relations with curators, dealers and critics. With experience in art management
and curating Golembiovskaya established RNA in order to contribute to the
Russian art education system, diversifying its narrow scope and implementing a
wider, international engagement.
By providing space and means for artists to develop
their practice, our goal is to establish a constantly expanding and developing
network, where the Russian contemporary art scene can be introduced to a wider
art market, galleries and institutions across the globe. To do so, an
exploration of new ideas is needed, as well as an active expanding of
boundaries of the media available. This progressive outlook allows us to bring
out the collaborative potential of not only museums and galleries we work with,
but also of other foundations, auction houses and art institutions.
One aspect of our future projects is to establish a
series of workshop spaces that will provide an interdisciplinary environment
for Russian artists from all backgrounds and with varying degree of experience.
Serving as a meeting point and an exchange ground for cultural capital, these
work and gallery spaces would also function as lecture theatres for educational
purposes and public events. We also plan to create residencies between Russian
and international artists, where we hope to instigate a much needed
cross-fertilization and collaboration.
However in order to realize such varied projects, we
often need financial support whether from an individual, patron, trust or
company. Philanthropy and charity are important factors in realizing any
cultural project and we would be happy to work with you, directing the need of
social engagement and cultural support through RNA’s activities.
Active since 2008, RNA Foundation is an exciting,
passionate organization that has exhibited and curated around the world,
devoting our focus on international artistic progression.
