About the Museum
Founded in 2008 by Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich, Garage is the first philanthropic organization in Russia devoted to contemporary art and culture. The institution reflects on current developments in Russian and international culture, as well as the production of new work and ideas in Moscow. At the center of its extensive programme of exhibitions, events and research & publication is the Museum’s collection, the first archive in the country related to the development of Russian contemporary art from the 1950s through the present. Initially housed in the renowned Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage in Moscow, Garage relocated in 2015 to its permanent home, the former Gorky Park Vremena Goda, transformed and designed by Rem Koolhaas and his OMA studio.
