Overview
More
Founded in 2008 by Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich, Garage is the first privately owned philanthropic organization in Russia to create a comprehensive public mandate for contemporary art and culture. One of the Museum’s key missions is the promotion of contemporary art as a space for public dialogue and reflection on the questions societies are facing today. As well as exhibitions by some of the most influential Russian and international artists working today (including Marina Abramović, Raymond Pettibon, Viktor Pivovarov, and Yayoi Kusama), Garage offers visitors a broad-ranging education program for children and adults, as well as film screenings, concerts, performances, and other events. Garage Bookshop is open daily and offers a great selection of books, magazines, and souvenirs produced in Moscow, including some made in collaboration with artists. In our comfortable café with a summer terrace and original cuisine you can even order breakfast at any time of day.

The Garage Museum is very easily to be seen when you walk through Gorki Park along the Moskva and see this sterile cube standing right in-between the greens and sidewalks. The Garage Museum of contemporary Art exhibits pieces that I would've considered somewhat foreign to...More

While perhaps one of the finest examples of 'negative space' in any contemporary art museum, I can't recommend it. Attached is a photo of practically only piece of art in the whole museum(baby and ball not included.) There are no permanent art installations and I...More

I've been to Garage quite a few times, and every time there's a unique collection on display; as of this writing, the Japanese artist Takashi Murakami had his works there. Sure, the museum is small, but it packs a lot of punch in that space....More

In the middle of Gorky Park we found it, simple and grey, but the inside was much diferent! Full of colors, interesting people and things to see, the f&b area is also as good as all the rest.. Must do.
