Smart Art is an art production and exhibition company established in 2016 by Anastasia Karneeva and Ekaterina Vinokurova, collectors and art patrons. Smart Art invests in Moscow’s local art scene and fosters its development in close collaboration with artists, institutions, collectors, and the community. Acting as a cultural institution in its own right, Smart Art accompanies artists through all production stages, from inception to exhibition. Smart Art takes care of fundraising, venue selection, legal backing, establishing contact between collectors and artists, attracting new audiences, and public programming. Smart Art experience includes over ten successfully produced solo and group shows. Portfolio of artists includes Alexey Buldakov, Alexandra Galkina, Daria Irincheeva, Zina Isupova, Alexandra Paperno, Anastasia Potemkina, Sergey Sapozhnikov, Sveta Shuvaeva, and Arseny Zhilyaev.

Smart Art sees its mission in the integration of young Russian art into the international art scene. The Russian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale is the most influential global platform that allows artists to participate in the international cultural discourse. As the official operator of the Pavilion, Smart Art aims to provide it with a much-needed long-term strategy. In this capacity, Smart Art is responsible for the Pavilion’s maintenance and exhibition production at the highest standards.
