Abramovich’s partner sets up new gallery in Moscow

Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, whose fortune is estimated by Forbes magazine at $19.5 billion, has pulled out as general sponsor of Ilya and Emilia Kabakov’s first retrospective in their native Russia. Despite the setback, the artists say the show will open as planned on 15 September in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts and CCC Moscow, a new gallery set up by Dasha Zhukova, partner of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Ms Zhukova’s Center for Contemporary Culture is located in the Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage built by Konstantin Melnikov, one of Russia’s most important modernist architects.
