Press-release ///

16th LINE gallery

Opened in December, 2011 the 16thLINE gallery is located in a new 4-storey building specially constructed in one of the city's finest districts, offering an ideally designed space of 300 m².
The 16th LINE GALLERY is a «gallery of galleries». It works with important international galleries, offering its space as a platform from which they can introduce emerging artists to the Russian market, and presents works by local artists at international fairs and festivals.

The gallery's ambition is to involve Russia in the worldwide cultural process. In the West there is a vague idea about what is happening in the Russian regions. Owners of Western galleries, art critics and journalists will see Russia and Rostov-on-Don with their own eyes through our joint projects with European galleries and artists. So we are promoting the city, the region and the country in general. This is an advantageous cooperation for everybody.

At the same time the gallery starts developing a new line that is searching and promoting talented artists of our region in the Russian and international art scenes. The four artists Alexander Selivanov, Oleg Ustinov, Maria Bogoraz and the "Belka&Strelka" fluxrus art group were presented by the gallery at the "White Nights. Cultural Alliance" festival". The next step is to present works by these artists at the international art fair VIENNAFAIR 2012 in September. 

In addition to exhibition activity, the 16thLINE gallery also arranges a series of lectures and master classes designed for a general audience.
