Corporate Programs

With the support of corporate partners and patrons, Garage can create its most ambitious projects.

In the eleven years of its existence, Garage has organized a number of important exhibitions, opened an education center that is home to a free public library and Garage Archive Collection, and launched artist studios and residencies at VDNKh. With an extensive program of education events, academic, inclusive, and publishing projects, the Museum offers a new, form of leisure, bringing together like-minded people. Garage partners and patrons are directly involved in the development of art and society in Russia.

Corporate membership is a unique format that helps to develop corporate culture and build a stronger team based on a shared interest in contemporary art and creative and critical thinking. The flexible calculator allows you to create an individual package that reflects your company’s preferences.

Projects to support


Every year Garage organizes several large-scale exhibitions, including retrospectives of key Russian and international artists, group shows, and presentations of new works produced for Garage Atrium and Garage Square. Garage team is focused on promoting knowledge about contemporary art and developing new forms of interaction with visitors, so every exhibition is accompanied by an extensive public program of free events, including lectures, workshops, discussions, screenings, talks by artists and theorists, and family activities.


Since the launch of Garage Publishing, the Museum has published books with a total print run of 800,000 copies. Every year, Garage publishes Russian- and English-language books on the history and theory of art, culture, and philosophy, as well as books for children. In 2017, Garage launched two new series: Garage Dance covers the history of modern and contemporary dance and GARAGE.txt features writing by awardees of the Museum’s eponymous grant program. Garage also runs the annual international Garage Art Book Fair.


Garage’s Inclusive Programs Department runs free tours and events for deaf and hard of hearing and blind and partially sighted visitors, as well as for people with developmental and learning disabilities and wheelchair users. The department’s projects aim to build a more inclusive environment through training programs for professionals and to attract new audiences and develop new ways of communicating with them. Since 2019, Garage has also been working on improving public attitudes toward migrants and refugees.


Garage Archive acts as a platform for the Museum’s research, publishing, and exhibition projects. Its collection of over 500,000 items includes documents on Russian art from the 1950s until the present day. These documents are currently being digitized and uploaded onto the Russian Art Archive Network (RAAN), an online platform that from 2019 also includes materials from the Research Centre for East European Studies at the University of Bremen.


The first public library on contemporary art in the country, Garage Library holds over 30,000 items, including monographs by leading contemporary art historians and critics, catalogues of group exhibitions and museum collections, books on artists, art and architecture journals, publications on the theory of culture, and rare books. The library also offers access to international online data bases and runs its own public program.


Garage Live is a program of performances, music, theatre, and dance events initiated in 2012 to reflect the importance of lived experience and the Museum’s role as a public space based on the ethics of empathy. Garage Live events offer sensory and emotional experiences rather than knowledge based on analysis. Since its launch, the program has presented over fifty projects in various formats, many of which were created especially for the Museum. Conceived as an experimental program, Garage Live supports Russian performers and dance artists through the integration of their work into hybrid education projects.


Launched in 2016, Mosaic Music is a program of live concerts by Russian and international musicians and artists whose work defines the development of the music industry today. Mosaic Music has included performances by Sevdaliza, Sampha, Ibeyi, Leon Bridges, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and others.


The Museum’s film program was launched in 2012 and brings viewers new festival hits, classic movies, and avant-garde and experimental pictures. Every summer Garage opens a temporary cinema on Garage Square.


One of the Museum’s key programs, Garage Education includes an extensive public program of free events, as well as education courses, lectures, research conferences, masterclasses, and much more. In 2019, Garage launched the Master’s program Curatorial Practices in Contemporary Art at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow.


In 2012, Garage launched Russia’s first grant program in support of emerging artists, which remains the only project of its kind in the country. Grant awardees receive a monthly stipend for one year. In 2019, the Museum launched Garage Studios and Art Residencies at VDNKh, offering 18 free studios to artists from Moscow and Russia’s regions.
