The most important gallery of the 1990s in Belarus. She worked on the top floor of one of the BSPA buildings (today: BNTU).

Gallery "Sixth Line" was created in Minsk in 1992 on the initiative of the artists Viktor Petrov, Igor Kashkurevich and Alexei Zhdanov, becoming a kind of structural unit of the company "Beltechnologiya and M", which specialized in mechanical engineering. "Sixth Line" is a new non-profit gallery located in the ninth building of the Belarusian State Polytechnic Institute (now the Belarusian National Technical University) on Yakub Kolas Street and named (at the suggestion of the artist Alexei Zhdanov) thanks to one of the Minsk toponyms - 2nd Street Sixth Line, partially preserved on the map of today's Minsk. Before World War II, this street ended near the building of the Sixth Line Gallery.

In documentary sources - posters, invitations, press releases from different years - you can find several options for the name of the exhibition space: the gallery of contemporary art "Sixth Line" (since 1992), the center of modern art (three exhibitions in 1994), the independent center of avant-garde art (1995 ), Gallery "Sixth Line". – © Ekaterina Kenigsberg "Establishment of contemporary art curation in Belarus in the 1990s on the example of projects of the Sixth Line Gallery", Art and Culture. - 2020. - No. 4 (40). – S. 20–280.

The gallery for the first time openly exhibited works by artists of the Belarusian underground: Lyudmila Rusova, Igor Kashkurevich, Viktor Petrov, Olga Sazykina, young representatives of the Minsk school of creative photography Igor Savchenko, Galina Moskaleva and Vladimir Shakhlevich.
