Dinara Lizunova, PR director of Capital Group, notes: “Although Capital Group Art Foundation takes part in this event for the first time, our gallery has become Moscow’s notable cultural landmark. Capital City regularly hosts artistic and photo exhibitions, as well as public events – fashion shows, festivals and presentations. It is by no means surprising since Capital City is a unique building that reflects the artistic endeavors by the company that started its own collection of paintings and sculptures 10 years ago.
On May, 15-16 you can visit the Capital City exhibition for free.
Opening hours: 6 p.m. till 2 a.m.
