Anna Nova Gallery was founded by Anna Barinova in 2005, and is currently one of the leading galleries in Russia. The gallery actively supports original and innovative interdisciplinary art practices, producing research-based projects and large-scale installations. In the past few years the gallery has expanded its activities and now aims to discover and promote young artists who work with urgent cultural issues and challenges that our society faces today.
Many of these artists are interested in scientific research and their practice stem naturally from contemporary technological developments. They operate on the global scale, pursuing nomadic lives of contemporary agents of culture, introducing local contexts into international cultural environment.
