Moscow Museum of Modern Art is the first state museum in Russia that concentrates its activities exclusively on the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Today the Museum is an energetic institution that plays an important part on the Moscow art scene
    The Museum was unveiled on December 15, 1999; its founding director was Zurab Tsereteli, President of the Russian Academy of Arts. His private collection of more than 2.000 works was the core of the Museum's permanent display that represents main stages in the development of Russian art in the 20th and 21st centuries. A special emphasis is put on the assembly of Russian avant-garde, from Malevich to Pirosmani. An extensive section of the display is devoted to Non-Conformist art of the 1960s-1980s; the collection of contemporary art continues to grow. The holdings also include pieces by well-known Western masters, such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Mir?, Giorgio De Chirico, Salvador Dal?, Henri Rousseau, and others.
    Today the Museum has three venues in the historic centre of Moscow: the main building in Petrovka Street, as well as exhibition venues in Ermolaevsky Lane and Tverskoy Boulevard. Every year, the Museum organizes single-artist shows, group exhibitions and conceptual displays by well-known masters as well as by emerging artists or the ones that need to be rediscovered. We aim at showing the artistic process of the 20th and 21st centuries at its maximum span and diversity
