Gallery of contemporary art Ў was formed in 2009 in Minsk, and now it holds a position as one of the most significant art spaces in Belarus. The gallery organises individual and group exhibitions of contemporary Belarusian artists as well as foreign European artists. Each exhibition is accompanied with artist talks, lectures, and discussions. In recent years Gallery of contemporary art Ў has built a reputation as a place highly engaged in the city’s public activities by running numerous seminars, debates and other events not only in field of art, but in social and civic arenas as well.
Since 2010 the gallery has supervised the project START. The aim of this project is to promote emerging young Belarusian artists by organising solo exhibitions and public discussions.
