Gallery Y, Minsk

Gallery Y (Галерэя сучаснага мастацтва «Ў») is very close to Victory square. It opened in late 2009 and as far as I know it’s Minsk’s sole gallery of contemporary art. The particular exhibition was of limited interest to me, but the adjoining bookshop Logvinau (Кнігарня «логвінаЎ») was very pleasing, as I there first saw several interesting books, notably two by a new name to me, Artur Klinau.

There’s also a cafe/bar, Moloko (Бар «Малако»), in the same building. In Your Pocket makes this sound good.
