Moscow Manege exhibition hall

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Moscow Manege exhibition hall

This autumn, the legendary Moscow Manege exhibition hall was reborn in fully renovated premises. The building was originally erected from 1817 to 1825 and was initially designed to house military parades. It eventually served as a car garage, before being converted into the Soviet Union's main exhibition hall in 1957, playing host to practically all of the most significant Soviet-era art exhibitions thereafter. Following the collapse of the USSR and a foray into the promotion of consumer culture (with exhibitions on fur skins and "economic accomplishments", for example), the Manege is now focusing its ambitions on hosting world class exhibition projects like no other on the city's culture scene.

Aside from the main exhibition hall, which occupies 5500 m2, the complex houses the New Manege and Chekhov's House, along with the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman exhibition centre. In 2013, the Manege will host the Moscow Art Biennale (September 19 - October 20), but before then, it will feature showings by such illustrious artists as Yayoi Kusama and Daniel Buren.

Currently (until November 11), the New Manege is showing an exhibition devoted Armenian film director and artist Sergei Parajanov. Entitled The house in which I live, the exhibition is on loan from the Parajanov museum in Yerevan, Armenia.
