Manege central exhibition hall is the biggest display space in the center of St. Petersburg. The exhibition hall is located in a historic building of the Imperial Horse Guards regimental arena, built in 1804-1807 according to the project by Giacomo Quarenghi.
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, the Manege is well on its way to becoming one of Russia’s 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; an art library is open to the public; the space serves as a forum for socializing and professional exchange in the cultural realm. All this, taken together with the Manege`s unique location in the very heart of the city, is making the Manege a key point of attraction on the city’s creative map.
