The Alina Pinsky Gallery opened in Moscow in the spring of 2017. The Gallery is located in the Isakov House on Prechistenka Street – an architectural monument of the early XX century (architect Lev Kekushev).
Our specialty is art and collectable design from the mid-twentieth century to the present day, which might also be termed Modern & Contemporary. Abstract art is a particular speciality of the Gallery.
The Alina Pinsky Gallery exclusively represents Igor Сhelkovski, Michael Chernishov and Evgeny Muzalevsky, and, in addition, works with such artists as Francisco Infante-Arana, Vladimir Andreenkov, Alexander Yulikov, Evgeni Dybsky, Tim Parchikov and Dunya Zakharova.
The collection of artworks of the New School of Paris of the 50s and 60s, which is one of our strengths, is represented by such names as Serge Charchoune, Andre Lanskoy, Olivier Debré, Léon Zack, Gérard Schneider, Alexandre Garbell, Ladislas Kijno, Jean Miotte, Jean Messagier and others.
An equally important component of the Gallery’s collection is the artworks of the Soviet underground, including Rimma Zanevskaya, Evgeny Mikhnov-Voitenko, Yuri Zlotnikov and Marlen Shpindler.
The Alina Pinsky Gallery shows the best examples of the ideas behind designs in a historical context: the design classics of the mid-twentieth century with their clean lines, animated materials and minimalism, significant objects of the 70s and 80s arising from aesthetic protest, and bright images and objects of modern designers that meet the taste of the Gallery. Ettore Sottsass, Shiro Kuramata, Poul Kjærholm, Pierre Jeanneret, Jean Prouvé, Jorge Zalszupin – these are just some of the names represented by objects in the Gallery.
Over the four years of its existence, the Gallery has held 10 exhibitions in its own space, and one in the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow in 2018, and it regularly participates in contemporary art fairs.
In the fall of 2019 three sculptures by Igor Сhelkovski – “Standing”, “Walking” and “Running”, which belonged to the Gallery, joined the collection of the New Tretyakov Gallery. The three-meter metal figures became the first exhibits of the future park of modern sculpture at the State Museum.
