An exhibition "Art-Minsk-2021" will open in the gallery "Atrium" (3rd floor) on September 21 at 17.00.

The National Library of Belarus takes part in the art festival "Art-Minsk" for the fourth time. As in previous years, the festival will unite several exhibition venues in Minsk, turning them into one large and bright gallery for a while. This large-scale fest has been prepared for the sole purpose of giving the residents and guests of the city the pleasures of art.

The rich exposition will present the best and most original works from the treasury of modern Belarusian fine art, which will impress and excite visitors. Guests of the exhibition will see the works of artists of different generations and worldviews, united by creative energy and performing talent.

The special nature of the festival "Art-Minsk" is the discovery of new, little-known names. At the same time, the exhibition will feature works by famous authors and will allow you to feel the pulse of creative life, the dynamics and trends of contemporary art.

The exhibition will run until 24 October.
The end date is subject to change.
