Private Tour of "Erarta" Galleries

Erarta Museum is the largest private museum of contemporary art in Russia. Its name is derived from combining two words — “Era” and “Arta” — “Era Arta” can be translated from Russian as “The Era of Art”. The art museum collection contains 2300 works created by more than 170 artists from over 20 regions of Russia. But for painting that is the majority of the collection, it includes graphics, sculpture, installations, and other types of modern fine arts. Works for the museum collection are chosen in accordance with the criterion of talent, not the artist’s popularity or adherence to a particular art movement. Accompanied by our professional English-speaking guide you will learn more about the collection, the artists and the contemporary art museum’s unique projects.

The art museum collection contains 2300 works created by more than 170 artists from over 20 regions of Russia.

Accompanied by our professional English-speaking guide you will learn more about the collection, the artists and the contemporary art museum’s unique projects.

    Besides the standard tours, the following options are available (advance booking is required):

    Tour Erarta Style is an unique tour with two guides. As a professional in art, the first guide will respond to cultural, artistic, and social requirements in any field. As a professional in philosophy or art history, the second guide will offer an interesting and intellectual discussion of selected artworks. You will be able to understand art processes and see from multiple vantage points to acquire experience and objectivity in the art scene. You will also develop a receptive and critical discernment to identify the diversity and problems of art.

    Night in Erarta is an amazing modern show, unforgettable theatre action in light & shadow, which takes place in the late hours. The lights often bring out new perspectives — paintbrush strokes, canvas textures and others look very different at night than in broad daylight. The performance starts at 10:00 pm and lasts 1.5 hours.

    Russian Montmartre is great for in-depth learning, providing personal attention and guidance from an artist instructor. Work directly with our Master's guidance in a large conventionalized contemporary artist's studio and make your own painting over the printed base. One lesson lasts for one hour for groups up to 20 people.

    Brodsky Recitation is listening to recordings of great Brodsky's poetry made in Russian or English. You will sit in a comfortable chair with a glass of wine and listen to recordings of poetry recited by the author and share reminiscences of him in the personal exhibition hall of Valery Lukka, famous Russian artist. His works, exhibited in more than 200 international exhibitions and auctions, are connected with Brodsky's poetry. The session lasts for half an hour for groups up to 20 people.

    Talking Art is enjoying to a famous art works of Elena Figurina and listening to the unique life stories of her paintings. Elena Figurina uses very expessive painting style, local colours and simplified forms are taking over in her paintings. But even her early works are more deeper in comparison to ordinary naive art. The session is 40 minutes for groups up to 20 people.

    Erarta also conducts special tours for children (junior and senior), offering adapted tour of the museum, activities and visiting one or two sessions of U-spaces*.

    * U-Spaces are total installations, each one with its own theme, which immerse the viewer in a particular world for 15-minute private sessions and enable one to experience certain feelings or emotions. You can take four people with you, but we recommend experiencing a U-space alone. Our staff will help you select ones that best suit your mood.
