Radical artist Oleg Kulik, who would later make a splash with his zany act Dog-Man, worked at REGINA Gallery, based at WINZAVOD Centre for Contemporary Art, for four years back in the 1990s, when places like this were few and far between in Moscow. Kulik was first the art director, then a resident artist at Regina. In the 90s, REGINA gained notoriety among Moscow's art fans with its controversial project Leopards Break into the Temple, when real leopards strolled around in the crowd of visitors. Semion Faibisovich, once labelled an "underground artist" by Soviet culture officials, continues to exhibit at REGINA. Moscow's "new wave" artists also love to have their shows at REGINA.
