Art Incubator - Donna Artiste - Red Moon


Red moon is an art incubator that aims at promoting young female artists from under-represented countries.

Red Moon's founder, Julie, is a curator and collector with a fascination for up-and-coming art scenes. She is half French and half Indian and therefore started her focus with the Indian sub-continent. She observed that a number of young and motivated artists from these regions find it difficult to exhibit in and connect with the European art scenes.

She created Red Moon in 2019 to bridge that gap by enabling more exchanges between East and West. Passionate about supporting women in all spheres of life, she decided to focus on women artists, who have to overcome a number of hurdles to express themselves both at home and abroad.

Beyond exhibitions, Red Moon also facilitates peer networking and mentoring among female artists part of the collective. By definition, Red Moon wants to be an incubator – a safe space for women artists to try out and experiment new things.

At Rome Art Week, Red Moon will bring 5 women artists that represent different artistic journeys and medium.
