Yekaterinburg Gallery of Modern Art is one of the first private art galleries in the Ural region. It was founded in 2004. The gallery became the first place where a private collection of Ural fine arts was shown. Our main mission is preserving the best works by local artists. Nowadays the collection includes about 1300 paintings, graphics, sculptures and art objects that present the gradual development of Ural art school. Initiated as a space for presentation of Ural art at the turn of the 19th and 20 century, the gallery has expanded its conception and has become an active participant of live art process in the region. The new mission of YGMA is research of contemporary esthetic practices in the region, the creation of new contexts of traditional and innovation Ural art forms, supporting and promotion of young local art in international context. In fulfilling its missions, YGMA takes part in special and parallel programmes of Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary Art. Gallery worked together with partners such as Museum of Contemporary Art Erarta, CCI Fabrika, NCCA, Photo Gallery March, Yeltsin Center, etc. From its foundation, the gallery has organized and curated more than 230 art projects with participation of Russian and foreign authors.
