Elga Wimmer & Frère Independent are proud to present the second edition of Open Portfolio at the Chelsea Art Museum. A pool of thirty to forty 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 three days artists will use a computer and their portfolio to present their work at the museum. At the end of the three days the artists will leave a selection of their works at the museum beginning a month long exhibition resulting from the three day salon and interaction with the public. 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.
