CC19 reflects on the cultural processes of the present in dialogue with the public and local communities through its exhibition, educational, and musical programs. Through its curatorial projects, CC19 invites the audience to see art as part of social relations and to think of exhibitions as a place for dialogue where new ideas can be born. CC19 seeks to work with the Siberian art scene and in partnership with Russian and international organizations to “ground” art in the local context.

The museum’s collection is based on works of Russian art of the eighteenth to mid-twentieth centuries, donated from the collections of the Department of Arts under the Council of People’s Commissars of the RSFSR, the State Russian Museum, the State Tretyakov Gallery, and Nizhny Tagil’s Local Lore Museum.

Museum of contemporary art PERMM

Perm Museum of Contemporary Art (PERMM) was founded in 2009 by gallerist Marat Guelman, with the support of Perm Krai governor Oleg Chirkunov and senator Sergei Gordeev. For its first five years the museum was located in the former river terminal building in the historical center of the city. In summer 2014, it moved into a new building in the industrial area of Motovilikha. Initially, the museum was a central element of a major regional program to transform Perm’s cultural life through a new cultural policy, which was known colloquially as the Perm Cultural Revolution.

The basis of the collection are works which were donated to the museum by the Directorate of Exhibitions of the Union of Artists of the USSR and the Republican Center for Art Exhibitions and Promotion of Fine Arts of the Ministry of Culture of the RSFSR. Today, the collection is supplemented thanks to gifts from artists.

Tikhaya Studio, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

Tikhaya Studio is a new type of institution, where artists’ studios become a place for friends to meet, an exhibition space, and a research center. Launched in 2015 in Nizhny Novgorod as a working space for artists, over time Tikhaya was transformed into a full‑scale institution and a point of attraction for city residents and visitors. At the heart of the studio’s activity is a self‑organization of resident artists and their co‑thinkers, who work together on developing the art scene in the city.

Yeltsin Center

The key mission of Yeltsin Center (Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center) is to preserve, study, and interpret the historical legacy of the former president of Russia Boris Yeltsin in the context of the political and social events of the 1990s.
