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.
The Program, aiming at addressing the research carried out by young artists, is carried out by Chiara Agnello (Careof) and Simone Frangi (Viafarini) who also coordinates for Viafarini a board composed of the following curators and critics: Antonia Alampi, Mara Ambrozic, Veronica Bellei, Giulia Bini, Valerio Borgonuovo, Luca Castiglioni, Guia Cortassa, Michele D’Aurizio, Valerio Del Baglivo, Silvia Franceschini, Antonio Grulli, Cecilia Guida, Denis Isaia, Barbara Meneghel, Aria Spinelli, Marco Tagliafierro, Roberta Tenconi.
