- The Manege Central Exhibition Hall
The "Manege" is a centre of art and cultural life in St. Petersburg and has been in operation for over 30 years. In this time the halls have displayed over 400 artist exhibitions ranging from photography collections all the way to avant-garde paintings of contemporary life in St. Petersburg. The Central Exhibition Hall actually has its own contemporary art collection that it started collecting in 1991. This collection shows the history of the development of the art in St. Petersburg since 1920.
As the “Manege” is a rotating gallery of exhibitions it means that it’s impossible to tell you at this moment what you will be able to see on your visit! It’s one of those moments where if you like contemporary art and delving into the latest artistic trends, then you won’t be disappointed, no matter what’s on! If you want to be able to plan your visit before arriving then have a look on the website, although this is only available in Russian!
