About the exhibition
Minsk becomes brighter, more diverse, more interesting and bigger, including through the opening of new cultural art spaces. We invite you to the very center of the capital in the recently opened LIBRA Exhibition Hall at Nezavisimosti Avenue, 37.
LIBRA Exhibition Hall invites Minsk residents and guests of the city to visit the first exhibition “Somewhere to the west from Minsk … Everyday life of Western Belarus”! This interesting travel to the 20s-30s of the previous century was prepared together with the famous Nesvizh Museum-Reserve, The National Library of Belarus and The Museum of the Borderland and the Land of Ostrovskaya (the Republic of Poland).
You can take a stroll through the street of the begin of 20th century and familiarize yourself with functioning of institutions typical of most localities: schools, post offices, bank branches; after that you can go to the cinema, tailor’s workshop, household goods store, bookshop and take a souvenir photo.
The walls are partially covered with prints with views of city streets and institutions. The columns contain thematic collections of documents and photographs of the interwar period, as well as collections of interwar postcards with views of Western Belorussian cities.
At some sections there are stands with additional information in Russian, Belarusian and English.
