WINZAVOD Centre for Contemporary Art

Mikhail Metzel/TASS

If there is one thing Garage owner Darya Zhukova's story teaches us, it is that it takes big business to promote modern art to the masses. Sofia Trotsenko, the wife of Russian billionaire Roman Trotsenko, found the compound of the former winery – WINZAVOD – at Syromyatniki, and turned it into a contemporary art centre of the same name. WINZAVOD is now the home of about a dozen art galleries, as well as the studio of Aidan Salahova, a name respected by international art dealers. Apart from countless art shows and festivals, WINZAVOD offers master classes for beginner-level artists.
