A personal exhibition by Roman Mokrov titled “Put a Newborn Fire in Your Palm” will be held from April 25 to May 18, at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art on Gogolevsky Boulevard, with the support of Triumph Gallery. For several years, Roman Mokrov made some money on the side by working as a photographer. On the basis of the materials shot in that process, he is presenting an exhibition-installation dedicated to marriage rituals in Russia. As well as photographic and video chronicles of various ceremonies and celebrations, the exhibition includes attributes that are part and parcel of these rituals, and at the opening of the exhibition, in the museum's courtyard, an actual wedding will be held, complete with newlyweds, a master of ceremonies, a “ransoming” of the bride and competitions.

In 2013, Triumph Gallery organized 38 projects, including exhibitions at the gallery and at museum venues. At the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, retrospectives of the works of Olga Tobreluts and Dmitry Gutov were held, while at the Artplay Design Center the first exhibition of the SOPROMAT project was presented. The result of work with the MediArtLab Museum of Screen Culture was the “Great Expectations” program, which once a month at the Manege exhibition center presents personal exhibitions by young video artists (Roman Mokrov, Yevgeny Granilshchikov and others). At the gallery, within the framework of the “Method” project, five exhibitions featuring foreign artists have been held, with Triumph for the first time presenting the works of artists operating in the street art genre (Kostas Seremetis, Charlie Isoe).
