A private art platform in Minsk that combines an exhibition hall, a bar and a shop selling artworks and designer items. The gallery is managed by director Valentina Kiseleva and art director Anna Chistoserdova. The gallery is considered one of the most important contemporary art institutions in Belarus in the 2010s.

The gallery worked from October 2009 to October 2017 in Minsk at 37A Nezalezhnosti Ave. From October 2017 to April 2021, it continued its activities at st. October, 19.

The site was founded by the same team as the Podzemka gallery in 2009. The administration sees the goal of the gallery in representing and supporting young and already well-known Belarusian and foreign artists, educational activities in the field of art history, art management, curatorial work, as well as creating conditions for the formation of a critical and analytical environment.

The gallery constantly supports emerging artists, for this in the early years it founded the START program and the Smart Art competition, then annually presents projects by young artists. The first or one of the first exhibitions in the gallery were shown by: Roman Aksenov, A.R.Ch., Nikolai Belko, Alena Gaiko, Zhanna Gladko, Oleg Ivchenko, Zakhar Kudin, Nadezhda Makeeva, Anton Sorokin, Alexei Tolstov, Evgeny Shadko, Yuri Shust.

Until 2017, the gallery collaborated with the following artists: A.R.Ch., Andrey Busel, Zhanna Gladko, Mikhail Gulin, Sergey Kiryushchenko, Andrey Lenkevich, Alexey Lunev, Igor Savchenko, Antonina Slobodchikova, Tamara Sokolova, Alexey Tolstov, Sergey Shabokhin, Evgeny Shadko.

In October 2017, the gallery was closed due to moving to another site. The opening took place within the walls of a more spacious room in the spring of 2018 at st. Oktyabrskaya, 19. The relocation of the institution also marked a change in the format of activity, when the site conditionally refused to work directly with its artists, becoming an art center, which demonstrates larger exhibition projects.
