Exhibition Projects in the Palace of Independence

The Palace of Independence is not only a venue for important events but also a place where one can get to know the culture, history, and traditions of Belarus.

The interiors of the Palace have repeatedly been decorated with artworks of famous Belarusian artists, designers, photographers, sculptors, and talented beginner artists.

In summer 2018 the country's talented creative young people got an opportunity to present their works here. Those were students of the Belarusian State Academy of Arts, the Belarusian State University of Culture and Arts, and Glebov Minsk State Art College.

One of the largest projects shown in the halls of the Palace of Independence recently is the photo exhibition "Planet Belarus" by the famous Belarusian photographer Sergei Plytkevich. The author invites the exhibition visitors to look at Belarus from up high and shows the beauty of its nature and major sites.

The Palace of Independence is a wonderful exhibition venue not only for Belarusian artists. During the official visit of Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev to Belarus in autumn 2018 works by the Azerbaijani artist Naili Gandilova were displayed here. The exhibition was dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the countries.

Since the institution of the Day of People’s Unity in the Republic of Belarus, the Palace of Independence has hosted exhibitions times to this public holiday. The first one called "The belt of unity" took place in 2021. The exhibition featured different arts and crafts, including pottery, willow weaving, embroidered clothes, icon painting, etc.

In 2022, on the Day of People’s Unity, the Grand Ceremonial Hall was decorated with about 50 works of Belarusian artists Nikolai Isaenok, Anna Kononova and Anna Sadovskaya. The exhibition was called "To Belarus with love and care".

In 2023, exhibitions "In the light of heroic feat" (25 paintings featuring the memories of artists who saw the Great Patriotic War and its aftermath with their own eyes) and "The architectural mosaic of Belarus" (paintings of more than 40 Belarusian artists of different generations featuring Belarusian cities and towns, district capitals and rural settlements, architectural landmarks) were times to Victory Day and Independence Day.
