Collectors, wealthy patrons and museum directors had a chance for discrete preview and first deals with 30 plus galleries participating in this year’s edition of Cosmoscow, a contemporary art fair and Moscow’s answer to Art Basel.

Despite the financial crisis that resulted in Russian currency’s 60 percent fall, or perhaps because of it, the art fair is filled with collectors and buyers alike, and brands like Cadillac and Credit Suisse are supporting it. 

The private viewing that took place on September 10, kicks off the Cosmoscow fair which is housed in an impressive 19th century market a stone’s throw from the Kremlin. This year, the fair partnered with the Naked Hearts Foundation, a charity ran by Natalia Vodianova, who was a staple at the opening reception, along with who-is-who of Russia’s surprisingly booming art scene.
