September 21 through 25


ART MOSCOW is renewed annually, not only presenting to the public new works, names and galleries, but also introducing vital changes, which deeply affect the development of the project. This year the number of experts in the Expert Council enlarged by entering foreign professionals from Great Britain (Rachael Barrett) and Germany (Anne Maier). The structure of exposition area was also altered. Following the international experience, ART MOSCOW offered the system of equal exposition area. Galleries are offered to stand out for the quality of their expositions but not for their size. During the 2011 ART MOSCOW representations appeared in international activities at key sites of the world art scene in Berlin, Cologne, London, Madrid and Basel. The result of foreign activity is the increased number of foreign participants and the expanding pool of foreign participants in mass-media.  

This year over 40 national and international galleries introduce their expositions at 15 ART MOSCOW Fair. Adora Calvo Gallery (Salamanca, Spain), Aidan Gallery (Moscow, Russia), La Acacia Gallery (Havana, Cuba), AL Gallery (Saint-Petersburg, Russia), Alma Gallery (Riga, Latvia), Anca Poterasu Gallery (Bucharest, Romania), Art&Space (Munich, Germany), Atelier 2 (Moscow, Russia), Barbarian Art Gallery (Zurich, Switzerland), Black Square Gallery (New York, USA), Vostochnaya Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Gagliardi Art System (Torino, Italy), Gallery21 (Moscow, Russia), Green Art Gallery (Perm, Russia), Zvono Gallery (Belgrade, Serbia), Iragui Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Collage Habana Gallery (Havana, Cuba), Knoll Gallery (Vienna, Austria/Budapest, Hungary), Kiev Fine Art (Kiev, the Ukraine), Krokin Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Kultproekt (Moscow, Russia), Glaz Gallery (Moscow, Russia), M&Y Guelman Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Marina Gisich Gallery (Saint-Petersburg, Russia), Mironova Gallery (Kiev, the Ukraine), Nadja Brykina Gallery (Zurich, Switzerland), Pobeda Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Riga Gallery (Riga, Latvia), RuArts (Moscow, Russia), Temnikova & Kasela Gallery (Tallinn, Estonia), Triumph Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Fine Art Gallery (Moscow, Russia), FotoLoft Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Frolov Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Forsblom Gallery (Helsinki, Finland), Whitestone Gallery (Tokyo, Japan), XL Gallery (Moscow, Russia), Collection Gallery (Kiev, Ukraine), TSEKH Gallery (Kiev, the Ukraine).
