Culture Trip stands with
Black Lives Matter
Opened in 2009, this gallery exhibits contemporary paintings, sculpture, video art and photography from both European and Russian established and emerging artists. Since its beginnings it has worked regularly with the Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary Art, as well acting as the intermediary between local contemporary artists and art fairs and galleries across Europe and Russia. Ural Vision has a number of main exhibitions per year, while the artworks by local artists in the permanent collection are for sale year-round.

Stenograffia isn’t a gallery per se, but rather an annual national festival of street art that runs out of Yekaterinburg in July. Embellishing the streets with installations, graffiti art and pieces of public art, Stenograffia transforms the city into a gallery. While the festival calls upon established street artists of Moscow and Yekaterinburg to create work for the event, there are also open access streams where emerging talent and less well-known artists get the chance to display their work.
A relatively new entry in Yekaterinburg’s gallery scene, and something of a photographic powerhouse in the region, the March Centre of Photography was founded by photographer Denis Tarasov, chairman of the Sverdlovsk region’s branch of the Russian Union of Art Photographers. Here, award-winning photographers from around the world and Russia exhibit their work across landscape and wildlife photography as well as contemporary photography and digital collages. The centre also offers a children’s program and film screenings.
A commercial gallery that sells and displays artworks and craft from local artists, the Art Bird Gallery promotes the region’s stone cutting heritage. Here you’ll find intricate jewellery and objects delicately carved from semi-precious stones, as well as ceramics, blown glass and metalwork objects. The gallery also houses the Nevyansk Icon museum, and offers masterclasses on technical aspects of craft making.
