St. Petersburg is one of the largest cultural centers in Russia. This city hosts hundreds of different events every day in different locations: from houses of culture to centers, galleries, museums and non-traditional cultural events spaces.


Anna Nova Art Gallery

The gallery was founded in 2005 and since then has firmly occupied the position of one of the leading galleries in the country. It is located on three floors in the center of St. Petersburg and presents young art: both Russian and foreign. Among the artists exhibiting in the gallery are Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov, Ustina Yakovleva, Masha Agureeva, Alice Kern, Alexander Dashevsky, Yuldus Bakhtiozina, etc.

Borey Art Center

The history of the center dates back to 1990. Since its foundation, the gallery has maintained the principle of demonstrating unofficial art, as well as selecting artists to work with: its space is open to almost every artist, you just need to fill in an application and send it to the gallery’s email. It is also important to note that until now the Art center is a self-organization that does not have a patron, sponsor or permanent support from the state. In addition to the gallery space, “Borey” is also a publishing house (original), photo Studio, workshops, various meetings and events.

Thanks to the gallery we know two well-known creative associations: “The Brotherhood of New Blockheads” and “Parazit”, the first of which are no longer active, and the second are even based in the center.
