Ten years have passed with lightning speed. Light, dynamism, diversity, discovery, progress, are many of the words that come to mind when discussing the development of MAG, a contemporary art fair. Born from a combination of private initiative and the creative spirit of its founders, Montreux Art Gallery is widely recognized in the world of contemporary art as a high-level salon, which offers a wide range of artists and galleries nationally and internationally. In an effort to provide the public with an overview of trends in art, MAG has been establishing contacts with the world of art and culture for a long time. Painting, sculpture, graphic art are exhibited on 8000 square meters of exhibition space. The devotion of our visitors, as well as our members, have helped us to be certain each and every year that MAG should continue. This 2014 thus marks our first decade, and we are proud to introduce today a rich salon. To amaze you, to arouse your interest is our goal that we strive to achieve every year. We wish you a good visit, and we want to thank our partners who annually accompany us in this great adventure, our exhibition participants who bring us their creative abilities, and all those who participated in the development of Montreux Art Gallery-2014.
On the way to a new decade of art and culture in the heart of Montreux, Switzerland.

This year Russia received the right to be the guest of honor of the 10th Salon of Contemporary Art in Montreux. I think this choice was not random. Switzerland has always attracted musicians, artists, and writers from Russia. Many of them found here both spiritual shelter and inspiration, creating some of their best works, included in the treasury of world culture. Tchaikovsky wrote in Switzerland the operas “Eugene Onegin” and “Joan of Arc”, Stravinsky created here one of his most famous works, “The Rite of Spring.” A concert hall in Montreux (Auditorium Strawinsky) was named in honor of this composer. Fyodor Dostoevsky, Leo Tolstoy. Vladimir Nabokov have repeatedly visited and lived in Switzerland. Modern Russian culture, due to its openness and diversity, is still attractive for the Swiss. Participation in the Salon by Russian artists Zurab Tsereteli, Vitaly Gubarev, Anastasia Vostretsova and other masters will not only attract experts in the field of contemporary art and culture, but also all those who are interested in Russia, its culture and its history.
