976 Art Gallery was established in 2012 by Gantuya Badamgarav, to support and increase visibility of contemporary artists of Mongolia. Since its establishment, the popularity of the gallery has been growing rapidly, attracting intellectuals as well as the cool young crowd with its periodically changing exhibitions, experimental performances and open discussions. Gallery became an “art incubator” like space for both artists and the audience, offering different artistic expressions to the public, making fundamental contributions to the city life.
The gallery now collaborates with the most known contemporary artists of Mongolia, whose works have been shown at international important exhibitions such as Venice Art Biennale, Documenta, Shanghai Biennale, Asia Pacific Triennial, Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial and others.
Till September 2017, the gallery was operating under Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association and located in 2 different places, Max Center and Best Western Premier Tuushin Hotel. In September 2017, the gallery moved to the Choijin Suite, a charming building located in the heart of the city, with the support from Mongolian company “Alaqai” owned by Tsenguun Jargalsaikhan. Upon start of new collaboration, gallery changed its name into Art Space 976+.
