St. Petersburg Manege Central Exhibition Hall was opened after long restoration


After  several years of total renovation St. Petersburg Manege Central Exhibition Hall was opened with new exhibition of Russian artists participants of Venician biennale during last 25 years.

Also Manege Central Exhibition Hall hosted a gala event on behalf of Governor of St. Petersburg for SPIEF 2016 guests and participants 17th of June.

The guests were presented with works of contemporary Russian art and a performance from some of St. Petersburg’s greatest musicians and singers: Maxim Leonidov, David Goloshchekin’s jazz band, instrumental group BIS-QUIT and leading soloists of the Mariinsky Theatre.

Manege Central Exhibition Hall is a former riding hall for the Imperial Horse Guards fronting on Saint Isaac's Square in Saint Petersburg. It was built in 1804-07 to Quarenghi´s austere Neoclassical design, one of his last commissions. It replaced a disused canal connecting the Admiralty to the naval warehouses. The Horse Guards Boulevard takes its name from the building.

The Manege is a low, rectangular block with arched openings and lunettes. According to the Companion Guide, «itmimics a 5th-century BC Athenian temple with a portico of eight Doric columns bearing a pediment and bas reliefs». The marble statues of the Dioscuri standing beside their horses were patterned by sculptor Paolo Triscornia after the Fontana dei Dioscuri in Rome.

After the Russian Revolution the riding academy was rebuilt to accommodate a NKVD garage. A second floor was added to the building in 1931. Since the latest reconstruction campaign (dating to the late 1970s), the Saint Petersburg Manege has housed the city's main exhibition hall.
