Cosmoscow Foundation for contemporary art
The Cosmoscow Foundation supports capacity building within the Russian contemporary art scene, the development of private philanthropy, and building international relations and connections. The Foundation actively fundraises for its activities and its headline event each year is the Off white charity auction. This year the 7th Off white auction will take place on September 11, 2020, within the framework of the 8th edition of Cosmoscow. Mohammad Salemy, the co-founder and director of the New Center of Research & Practice in Berlin, is the curator of this year’s auction exhibition. Salemy and the Foundation team have collected an impressive array of artworks under the theme “Fiction & Forecast: New Generative Aesthetics & Worldmaking “. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Cosmoscow Foundation and be used to finance its support of contemporary art through its artist awards and commissions, education programs, and acquisitions for museum collections.
