About the Museum
The New Tretyakov Gallery is Moscow's premier venue for 20th-century Russian art. The exhibits showcase avant-garde artists such as Malevich, Kandinsky, Chagall, Goncharova and Popova, as well as nonconformist artists of the 1960s and 1970s, who refused to accept the official style. The New Tretyakov Gallery presents the most completed permanent exhibition of 20th century of the art in the country, in all its diversity: avant-garde, socialistic realism and art of the "austere style" and "underground" and some new art trends. It not only hosts large-scale retrospectives of great Russian artists, but also shows experimental exhibitions of young authors. A lecture hall and a creative workshop offer a wide range of theoretical knowledge and practical training about the art of the 20th and early 21st century for children, students and adults.
