“Broken Air” is the fourth in the series of projects by the Ural Branch of NCCA focusing on the contemporary art collections (“Pleasure Principle” – a private collection of Nadezhda and Andrei Agishev, “Age out of Sight” – the works from the collection of the NCCA, “Materia Prima” – collection of the PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art). The exhibition will feature selected works of contemporary artists, which have been collected by the Krasnoyarsk Museum Center since 1993.
Krasnoyarsk Museum Center was founded as the Krasnoyarsk branch of the Central Museum of V. I. Lenin, the only one in Siberia and Russian Far East, and the 13th on the territory of former Soviet Union. Today, the museum is the largest presentation platform of contemporary art in Siberia, where development and preservation of its own art collection takes place along with exhibitions, communicative and educational events, and numerous projects. Since 1995, the Center has been hosting the Krasnoyarsk Museum Biennale, a one of its kind forum of art works within the museum framework. In 2002, the Center pioneered the first Night of Museums in Russia, drawing from the European tradition of museum nights. Every year the Krasnoyarsk Night of Museums turns into a laboratory of creative experiments with youth subcultures, attracting about 3000 visitors.
