Galina Osetsimskaya Archive

In 2018, Garage received an archive previously owned by Galina Osetsimskaya, a collector of nonofficial Soviet and contemporary Russian art. She collected works by several generations, from the artists of the 1960s and the Moscow conceptualists (including Anatoly Brusilovsky, Francisco Infante, Igor Makarevich, Viktor Pivovarov, and Nikita Alexeev) to artists who emerged in the 1990s, such as Vladimir Dubossarsky and Alexander Vinogradov, Oleg Kulik, and Olga Tobreluts.

Osetsimskaya’s archive was donated to the Museum by her widower, Igor Osetsimsky. It includes press cuttings and numerous notebooks revealing the scope of the collector’s interests, as well as diaries expressing her reflections on the exhibitions she saw or books she read, records of her conversations with artists and critics, and notes of a more abstract or intimate nature.

Galina Osetsimskaya (1936–2000) was a translator and collector. She began collecting art in 1991. Works from her collection have been exhibited at Art Manege art fair (Moscow, 1999), the exhibition Russian Art after Perestroika (Sorø, Denmark, 2014), and other venues.
