is the largest display space in central St. Petersburg. Manege offers innovative ways for visitors of all ages to engage with contemporary and retrospective art through its exhibitions, workshops and lectures, film screenings, concerts and many more.
After a major refurbishment in 2013-2016, which included the installation of state-of-the-art exhibition facilities and the updating of its cultural programme, Manege is now one of Russias most in-demand venues for displaying world-class art. New curatorial projects showcase Russian and international art; an educational programme is aimed at both adults and children; the space serves as a forum for socializing and professional exchange in the cultural realm. All this, taken together with Maneges unique location in the very heart of the city, has made Manege a key point of attraction on the citys creative map.
The exhibition hall occupies the building of the historical riding hall or the manege of the Horse Guards regiment (architect Giacomo Quarenghi, 1807). Over the course of the 19th-20th centuries, in parallel to the dramatic changes in Russias history, the building of the manege had undergone a series of major changes.
