On Saturday 19 May 2012 in Moscow a protest rally was held entitled "The Nomadic Museum of Modern Art.” It was a follow-up to the “test strolls” along the Moscow boulevards by writers, who a week earlier had wanted to make sure that they could do it without permission from the authorities. 

The event was held to coincide with the city-wide "Night of the Museums". Artists Herman Vinogradov Sergei Yakunin, Nikolay Polissky, Marina Zvyagintseva, Victoria Lomasko and others wheeled their artwork on handcarts along Chistoprudny, Petrovsky, Rozhdestvensky and Sretensky boulevards.
