Zverev Center for Contemporary Art

Artistic center of unofficial artists


The Zverev Center for Contemporary Art was founded in 1992. It got its name in honor of the Moscow artist Anatoly Zverev, a classic of the Second Russian avant-garde, whose works became a kind of symbol of free domestic art of the second half of the 20th century. The center is engaged in the research and popularization of the work of not only Zverev, but also artists and poets of his circle: Moscow conceptualists, Dmitry Prigov, Dmitry Plavinsky, Alexei Khvostenko and others. The Center also supports young artists and curators.

In addition to exhibitions, concerts, performances, poetry evenings, book presentations and literary festivals are regularly held here. The museum has a club for young art historians, a leisure center for young people, a music club and a literary salon.
