With the support of the Vladimir Potanin Foundation the exhibition RUSSIA! opened at the NYC Guggenheim in September 2005. It became the most comprehensive exhibition of Russian art ever shown in the United States featuring more than 275 of the greatest masterworks of Russian art, from the thirteenth century to the present, many traveling for the first time outside Russia.

The exhibition’s main aim was to showcase the contribution of Russia to the world art culture and demonstrate the special relationship between Russia and the West. According to Thomas Krens, Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, “This exhibition will serve as a unique opportunity to introduce the international public to the most valued artistic treasures culled from Russia’s greatest museums”.
