The Arsenal changes its opening hours for the days of the World Cup.

From June 5 to July 15, the right wing will be open from 11:00 to 20:00. The museum will be closed on Wednesdays.

The Arsenal's left wing will be closed from April 30 till August 1.

The Arsenal hosts three exhibitions that will run until August 26, 2018:

‘The Goal’ exhibition incorporates unique archival photographs of three sports photographers’ generations: Nikolay, Maria and Evgeny Volkov from the Multimedia Art Museum Moscow (MAMM) collection. For the first time ever all the Soviet football stars of the 1930-1980s will meet on the same football pitch. Photos are accompanied by biographical texts and players' profiles in two languages.

‘Discovering the Landscape’ is a two-part exhibition researches the collective image of new landscapes. Two different projects coexist independently in one exhibition space: Yegor Plotnikov's 'Empty Place' and Gyungsu An's 'Membrane'. One generation artists, Yegor Plotnikov and Gyungsu An, who belong to different socio-cultural and geographical worlds, use the same concepts and try to answer similar questions: "What is a place? What is a landscape? How and why tensions emerge in the border areas between a city and its outskirts? What is the future of painting as a medium?".

‘Yury Sobolev. Space for One’s Own Use’ shows the heritage of Yury Sobolev, a graphic artist whose work was much ahead of his time. Sobolev became a prominent figure in the Russian art history of the second half of the 20th century. He was one of the active agents of the contemporary art process, a participant of the famous Manege Exhibition '30 years of the Moscow Union of Artists' (1962), one of the leaders of Moscow unofficial art in the 1960s and 70s, an innovator of magazine design, a pioneer of Russian media art, a theatre director, set designer and teacher.

On June 7, at 19:00 another exhibition — ‘Gorky.Modernism’ — will open. This large-scale exhibition project is dedicated to the art and architecture of the Gorky city in its 1960-s. Appeal particularly to 1960-s has strong reasons. It was the time of industrial and cultural development, new inventions and discoveries that shows the complex approach to designing the vision of the future based on the egalitarian social policy. The exhibition aims to show the succession of generations, to form new tourist routes for Nizhny Novgorod (former Gorky) residents and visitors, and to tell the recent history of the city in direct connection with its contemporaneity.
