RIZZORDI ART FOUNDATION was established in 2009 to foster actual art, support young artists and promote the integration of Russian art into the world’s art context. RAF not only deals with recognized Russian and international art stars but also helps beginning talents.
RIZZORDI ART FOUNDATION owns the unique exhibition space, loft, situated in historic malt-house, 4000 m2. Such a vast and easily transformable space allows RIZZORDI ART FOUNDATION to exhibit most topical world-class art projects. The loft has already hosted several big exhibiton projects – the street art festival ‘Space as…’, the first Night of actual art in St.Petersburg ‘Total Contemporary’ that united 11 art galleries, the Russian-Polish project ‘Happiness/Warm Gun’ – and participated twice in the ‘Night of Museums’.
RIZZORDI ART FOUNDATION pays great attention to educational programs – conferences, master classes, lectures for adults and children. RIZZORDI ART FOUNDATION cooperates with Russian Gift of Life (USA) and has its own children’s charity program. RIZZORDI ART FOUNDATION also cooperates actively with art collectors. After ultimate reconstruction the loft will accommodate lecture halls, cinema, art workshops, media library, bookstore and café.
