Artistic domain:

The focal point of the collection is Russian contemporary art from the 90-s till present. The collection includes all media and genres, comprising paintings, graphics, photography, sculpture, installation, objects,  documentation of performance, book-art and  video-art.

The collection consistently combines the most representative works of the last decades of the Russian art history. With the  aim is to preserve the integrity and initial idea of the works which are gathered in the collection we tend to acquire projects as a whole, rather than individual works. Besides, apart from buying works that are already represented in the local and international artistic context, Gazprombank initiates the production of new works, created by the artists specially for the collection.
