The new building of the National Center for Contemporary Art in Khodynskoye Pole (Moscow) must become the main national institution and a focus for all possible ventures in the sphere of contemporary art. These include young artists’ projects and luminaries’ exhibitions; the Center’s own collection and those of other institutions and private collections; the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art and the National Contemporary Art award; open lectures and movie shows; professional conferences; publishing programs and an e-library; concerts and performances; an art school for children; artists’ studios; a café and a bookstore, etc. The NCCA will unite people who create, develop, support, and promote contemporary art. Entering the Center, every visitor must feel not just as if he were in Moscow or Russia but in a world-scale Center of Contemporary Art, a significant point on the map of the museum world.

The new Centre building in Moscow will become a national bank of knowledge about modern art and will form a large-scale permanent exposition. It will organize modern, highly professional exhibitions and interdisciplinary projects. In addition, it must attract a great number of visitors, including a whole new audience who would not traditionally have visited such a museum. It is to be an institution with a developed museum infrastructure (a cafe, a club, a bookstore and gift shops, a room for children’s activities, etc.), a research center and an educational program, the purpose of which is to familiarize a wide range of visitors — Muscovites and tourists, children and adults, those with previous experience of such art or those without — with the art of the past decades and excite interest in this sphere of world culture.

The new building of the Center must become a platform for the development of creative thinking and must be independent and distinctive. It will be a place of intellectual potency which will enrich the Khodynskoe Pole area with its unique character and beautify Moscow’s architectural landscape.
