By the end of the year, these Fests will be held in 4 more cities – London, New York, Miami and Palm Beach – providing artists with a unique opportunity to enter the international market, and foreign guests – to get acquainted with new cultural codes.

“Nowadays the image of Russian people in London is a little bit different from the famous era of Russian seasons. We want to refresh the impression of Russian culture in London art market, which is traditionally one of the world’s art centers, by showing collections of contemporary art from promising Russian artists at the World Art Fest during one of the largest international exhibitions Frieze Art Week.” – Alexandra Shatokhina, director of the World Art Fest.
