PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art

Two years ago, the Russian city of Perm, located in the very heart of the country, was shaken up by what we could only define as a “commotion.” Initially the process, which might have seemed to run against the grain of the spirit of a provincial city in traditional Russia, started almost accidentally when Sergey Gordeev, a senator for Perm, presented a plan “to wipe the slate clean and create a new future.” That was the starting point for PERMM, a museum whose mandate, in a period of profound cultural transformations, is to provoke a seachange in people’s way of thinking, as well as to create new opportunities in the region. As such, the centre is part of a wider programme aimed at turning Perm into a cultural centre capable of competing on a par with Moscow or Saint Petersburg.

The State Hermitage Museum - Hermitage 20/21

The period spanning from 1917 to 2010 was defined in Russia by an almost total dearth of acquisitions of Western contemporary art. A gap that the Hermitage 20/21 Project for Contemporary Art hopes to fill.

In recent years, several top drawer shows have attracted new audiences to the Hermitage and placed the museum on the international contemporary art map.Particularly noteworthy were those dedicated to Chuck Close, Anish Kapoor, Wim Delvoye, Ilya Kabakov, Timur Novikov and Boris Smelov, as well as other shows dedicated to the cutting-edge US and British artists.
