Partners

The RAAN project was made possible thanks to the invaluable support of partners in the acquisition of new materials and the organization of proper storage and conservation facilities. Cooperation with major individual and corporate donors has allowed Garage to expand the project’s research program, support a number of important research initiatives, and contribute to the promotion of contemporary art in Russia and of Russian contemporary art abroad.

Garage Archive Collection expands on a daily basis with the addition of new documents, many of which are acquired with the support of Garage Education Patron, Alisher Usmanov’s Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation.

Partnership with the Foundation has enabled Garage to acquire some of the key archives in its collection, including the video archive of Vadim Zakharov, the photographic archives of Igor Makarevich and Yuri Palmin, the archives of Sergey Chubraev and Factory of Found Clothes, and the Art Activism Archive, all of which are essential in creating a clearer picture of the history of Russian contemporary art.

The Museum’s partnership with Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation is a good example of a horizontal connection created between an art institution and an art patron to work on socially important projects and foster positive social change.

With help from Panasonic, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art became the world’s first museum to store its archival materials on optical discs with freeze-ray™ technology. The robotized library was used for the project Russian Art Archive Netrowkr from 2017 to 2021.

In 2018, as part of its policy of environmentally conscious consumption, Garage installed Panasonic solar panels on its rooftop as a means of using renewable energy.
