The project aims to promote young artists’ creation, to establish international cooperation networks, and to help develop the Romanian cultural scene.

Since one of the main goals is to establish both international and local partnerships as well as involving Romanian art in local and global projects, the Biennial of Young Artists aims to increase Romania’s visibility on the contemporary cultural scene.

META Cultural Foundation organizes the Biennial of Young Artists since 2004.

META Cultural Foundation is one of he first private non-governmental organizations in Romania that promotes visual art. It was founded in 1995 and ever since it was involved in various projects, contemporary art exhibitions, sculpture symposia as well as interdisciplinary symposia. Today, the foundation promotes alternative contemporary art, inter/trans/multi/pluri/disciplinary dialogues, unconventional exhibiting locations, and experimental orientations.

The main goals of the foundations are: to promote Romanian contemporary art both locally and internationally; to establish European cooperation networks in the cultural field, that would lead to a better representation of Romanian contemporary art internationally; to familiarize the Romanian public with the changes that take place on the contemporary cultural artistic scene; to offer young artists the opportunity to express and to help them exhibit their works and show them to the public.
