Association of Galleries was initiated by Moscow contemporary art galleries and Winzavod Foundation with a purpose of representing art industry's interests at private, governmental and international levels.
The main goal of the Association is to bring Russian contemporary art to a new level by establishing communication and building cooperation with representatives of the government, business, and the Russian and international art community.
Contemporary art galleries are behind many processes that are changing the image of our country for the better – such as the transformation of cluster zones (former industrial production facilities) into innovative cultural centers, the appearance of truly modern sculpture on the streets of our cities, and the joint implementation of large-scale projects with state museums. Galleries and art institutions in most countries of the world are key players and engine of the art system. Their role is currently not disputed by anyone – however, in Russia they still do not have a well-deserved public influence.
Association of Galleries expects to change this position. Moreover, it aims to ensure a more active and beneficial impact of contemporary art on society.
