Triumph Gallery was founded in 2006 by Emelyan Zakharov and Dmitry Khankin. The gallery focuses on contemporary art and works with major Russian and international artists. Among well-known Russian artists with whom the gallery works are AES+F, Alexander Brodsky, Vladimir Dubossarsky and Alexander Vinogradov, Alexei Beliayev-Guintovt and Recycle. In 2006 Triumph showed the work of one of today’s most famous artists, Damien Hirst, for the first time in Moscow. This was followed a year later by a solo show by Jake and Dinos Chapman.
Triumph Gallery supports young artists through its Launchpad project. Project Triumphoto shows work by photographers three times a year and the seasonal project Method brings together artists working in the same medium or with similar artistic approaches.
Along with exhibitions in its own space, Triumph Gallery leads the curating of significant exhibitions at other venues in Russia and abroad and supports young artists.
