Our goal is to show the works of young and promising artists from around the world who have not yet gone beyond studios, Our Mission is to promote, support, and collaborate with emerging contemporary artists, encourage transparency, and to engage artists, students, and the community in meaningful dialogue through unique content and projects. With Sample, contemporary art is available to a wide audience, in the price range from $ 50 to $ 3000. Buying works from us is simple. On the web-site you choose the design and try it on in any interior.
Founded in 2016 by Anna Naumova and Sofya Simakova. In 2018, Alexandra Lekomtseva joined the project. Since it’s foundation, we held 5 auctions, 3 exhibitions, participated in the massive Moscow “Night of Museums 2018» action and sold more than 500 works of 50 artists. SAMPLE has become a project that represents a community of young artists from around the world and people, who are interested in contemporary art and actively interacting with it.
Our main activity is an auction, which is held every season. In two years of our existence, we held 5 auctions at key galleries and sites in Moscow. The average attendance of the event – 500 guests. The total number of works sold exceeded 400. The average price of work is 1,000$. The most expensive work was sold at the last auction for 7,000$. In summer, the auction format is replaced by an backyard parties, where small works are sold and master classes are held.
One of the main priorities of SAMPLE project is the interaction with companies that associate themselves with modern culture and contemporary art. We supervise projects which involve young artists and designers, offer conceptual consulting and promotion of the projects and events.
Our partners: Gallery «Triumph», central market «Tsvetnoy», bookstore chain «RESPUBLIKA», bar- restaurant «Powerhouse Moscow» and others.
SAMPLE actively cooperates with similar cross media companies, such as TEXT Museum (photography), Vyuga (illustration), design and architectural bureaus.
