Collection Art4 museum
About the owner
ART4 is a museum for contemporary Russian art. Its story begins in 2007 when Igor Markin opened the Moscow’s first private museum of contemporary art in the city center. It features a permanent exhibition of more than 1,000 works by major Russian artists, including Ilya Kabakov, Erik Bulatov, Vladimir Nemuhin, Dmitry Prigov, Komar and Melamid, Vladislav Mamyshev Monroe, Oleg Kulik, Anatoly Osmolovsky, and 140 more.
The Museum was open every day for its first 18 months, but changed its format in 2008 to be open only once a week, and then later to be open just one night of the year - the Night of Museums. In December 2015, ART4 began anew as “the museum that sells art." The museum still hosts a permanent collection, but every month presents a solo exhibition of artists from its venerable collection, as well as other promising young artists.
