Headquartered in London, international magazine Culture Trip lists 976 Art Gallery in third position among the best galleries and museums in Mongolia’s Capital City, Ulaanbaatar
976 Art Gallery, established in April 2012, is the labor of love of owner and avid art appreciator Gantuya Badamgarev. Gantuya, who is also the founder of the Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association, wanted to provide a space to promote the work of contemporary Mongolian artists to national and international audiences.
The spacious and well-lit gallery has 400 square feet of exhibition space and displays over 100 paintings, sculptures and other art installations alongside a number of artworks available for purchase. Among the gallery’s thought-provoking exhibitions was Lost Children of Heaven, which explored the rapid modernization of Mongolia and featured work by young native artists, including Avirmed Bayarmagnai and Orkhontuul Banzragch.
In late 2013, 976 Art Gallery achieved an important milestone when it displayed a collection of artworks by modern European and American masters, including Salvador Dali and Walter Womacka – the first exhibition of its kind in Mongolia.
