The gallery is part of the national historical and cultural project initiated by Belgazprombank, which is a collection, website, award and gallery.
The beginning of the formation of the collection was the acquisition of works by world-famous artists of the School of Paris - natives of Belarus.
Under the auspices of "Art-Belarus" the first exhibition project "Artists of the Paris School from Belarus" is being held, which opened in Minsk and later demonstrated in Gomel, Vitebsk and Vilnius.

The exhibition project "Ten Centuries of Belarusian Art" has become the largest exposition of the cultural heritage of the Belarusian people in the entire history of our country's independence.

The permanent gallery of the "Art-Belarus" project began its work. The gallery houses the collection of Belgazprombank.
In connection with political events in the country, 146 exhibits of the "Art-Belarus" gallery were arrested . This caused great resentment in the cultural community. Two days after the incident, the Art-Belarus gallery opened with QR codes on the walls instead of paintings - everyone sent them to a site where they could see the work. On July 1, the performance "Property" was held here. About 20 cultural figures attached images of paintings to T-shirts and stood all day near the places where these paintings used to hang. The idea of the action belongs to Nadezhda Sayapina. Soutine's painting "Eve" has become a symbol of peaceful protest. A flash mob #evolution started on social networks, where artists, and then other users, began to massively replicate the image. She appeared on T-shirts, bags, avatars on social networks, souvenirs.
