Plans for New Modern Art Museum Announced for Moscow’s GARAGE

Posted in Current Art Exhibits

The Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, founded in 2008 by Dasha Zhukova and funded by her charitable foundation for the development of contemporary culture, the Iris Foundation, has announced that as of May 1, 2014, the Garage will be known as the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art.  Architect Rem Koolhaas has been tasked with redesigning a derelict building in Gorky Park to house the Garage collection.  The move to transform the project into a museum will help further define the Garage and aid in the legal aspects of art donation.  Through her various projects, Zhukova, a Russian philanthropist, entrepreneur, fashion designer and magazine editor, has worked to bridge the gap between fashion and art.  It would be interesting for Zhukova who was recently named one of the Artnet news‘ top 25 women in the art world to make her mark on a contemporary art project here in Philadelphia.
