DOCVA, Documentation Center for Visual Arts organized by Careof and Viafarini, offers to the public a series of services for the promotion and documentation of contemporary art.

The Portoflio Archive hosts the documentation materials about 3500 artists working from the end of the 80’s to the present day.
The documentation gathered consists of artist’ files that describe the research carried out by the single artists, with images, biographical information and texts. All items are filed in databases that organize the information about artists and their documentation.

The Portfolio Archive is available for consultation by the public for the organization of exhibition, events, competitions and researches. Researches can be carried out by appointment with the support of a curator.

The Portfolio Archive is organized by Viafarini.
