About

Frère Independent & Elga Wimmer PCC are proud to present the second edition of Open Portfolio at the Chelsea Art Museum. A pool of 30 to 40 selected emerging artists from around the globe will share directly with the public their most recent art works. All works will be unique, original, and challenging. Curator Elga Wimmer will lead a selection committee of contemporary art specialists. For 3 days artists will use a computer and their portfolio to present their work at the museum. At the end of the 3 days the artists will leave a selection of their works at the museum creating a unique exhibition resulting from the 3-day salon and interaction with the public.

At the end of the 3 days the artists leave the museum but the works stay up on the wall for another month. Producers Elga Wimmer and Thierry Alet introduce here a new and dynamic way of promoting art. Open Portfolio is not just a show, an art fair or a biennial. It is a new format allowing for more proximity between the artists and the public at large.

To extend the dynamic, 2 works per artist will be published on the web a week prior to the opening of the show.
