The Lumière Gallery in Moscow will be opening a new venue in its building on Bolshaya Polyanka. The Gallery’s new space will house 2 exhibition halls, the educational Lumiere Club and a bookstore with the world’s best photography books on the ground floor. The new venue for the Gallery, which is in a three-storey 19th century mansion, was designed by the architect Evgeny Asse and his architectural firm.
The Gallery will concentrate on working with collectible photography of the Soviet and Western photographic heritage, and will also launch new offline and online projects. The Gallery will provide access to the foundations of the classics of Soviet photography by launching its own websites for the foundations of Naum Granovsky, Andrey Knyazev, Erwin Volkov and other photographers.
The Gallery will continue its active exhibition programme and present projects in its own space and at other museum venues. The Gallery will also host the Lumiere Club, a new educational project that includes an online and offline course on the history of the art of photography and the international art market, a club with events and lectures at the new venue and a loyalty programme for regular visitors to the Gallery.
