The Garage Museum of Contemporary Art

Founded in 2008 by Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich, Garage is the first philanthropic institution in Russia to create a comprehensive public mandate for contemporary art.
Providing opportunities for dialogue, as well as the production of new work and ideas, the Museum’s extensive program of exhibitions, events, education, research, and publishing reflects current developments in Russian and international culture. Central to these activities is the Museum’s collection, which is the only public archive in the country related to the development of Russian contemporary art from the 1950s through to the present.
On May 1, 2014, Garage Center for Contemporary Culture changed its name to Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, reflecting the co-founders’ commitment to providing long-term public access to living artists and art histories. On June 12, 2015, the museum moved to its first permanent home in Gorky Park, in the heart of Moscow.

Completed works

Our architects did all their best and saved the atmosphere of immensity and “huge factory”.

ArtParquet company installed birch plywood. This wood spice is really warm that`s why you can even sit on the floor or stairs if you want.

For the first time, plywood floors seemed to be unsuitable for installing in the café. Nevertheless, the mind was changed. Plywood is an excellent modern flooring material for installing to make the atmosphere warm and cozy. One more advantage of the plywood is the fact that there is no need to be coated but can be used as it is.

In the lecture-hall of the museum was used the industrial parquet of Wenge color. Except good technical specifications the industrial parquet has pleasant layout. For this room were manufactured wall-panels as well.
All in all, we managed to create the unique atmosphere.
