ERARTA is the biggest global project in Russian contemporary art; its principal part is the Erarta Museum in St. Petersburg. At the heart of Erarta lies a totally unique approach to both the art and the viewer, a desire to build a new relationship system between people and art. The most important person at Erarta is the viewer and all our activity is aimed at growing the number of people who love and understand contemporary art. This is because we love art ourselves and we believe that love of art can make any individual’s life more interesting, fulfilling and ultimately, happy!

The Museum

The largest private museum of contemporary art in Russia. The permanent collection contains over 2300 works by more than 250 artists from all over the country. Access to the museum and all temporary exhibitions on show at the 5-floor, 10000 sq. m. Erarta building is included in the standard Admission ticket (RUB 500 / 350). Holders and buyers of the Annual pass, which also doubles as Erarta Membership (RUB 950 / 650) get to skip the queues via a dedicated fast track and also get 10% discount at the restaurant, the coffee rooms and all shops.

Buying Art


Erarta’s activities also include the sale of contemporary Russian works of art via our international group of galleries located in London and Hong Kong (offering original works of art by more than 150 artists), our online store (worldwide delivery of custom size prints and gicleés) and the Erarta Design Workshop in St. Petersburg (integration of contemporary art into residential and office spaces, commissioning art objects). All proceeds support the Erarta project and contemporary Russian art as a whole.



Two wings of the Erarta building are dedicated entirely to temporary exhibitions, with over 40 shows of contemporary art, fashion and design being staged every year. Also, Erarta Stage, our 800-person performance hall hosts over 300 concerts, plays, lectures, fashion shows, creative workshops and other events per year. There’s always something happening at Erarta — find out what’s on in our calendar section.

The Visitors’ section contains all the information you need in order to plan your visit to Erarta: how to find us, what guided tours are available, what you can buy at Erarta’s shops and browse the menu of the Erarta Café restaurant.

Support the project

Erarta is a private project, financed by private funds. All profits acquired are reinvested back into the project, for example, towards supporting our Russian museum, and go towards promoting Russian contemporary art both domestically and abroad. A non-profit organization, Erarta Fund, has been especially established to aid such initiatives. Erarta gratefully accepts help from companies and individuals — you can find out more about the ways in which you can support the project here.
Thank you in advance!
