The Moscow International Biennale for Young Art is to be held for the seventh time in summer 2020! This is one of the largest and most ambitious projects in the sphere of contemporary art in Russia.
The biennial's goals are to bring attention to new names, to support and encourage the creative initiatives of the latest generation of artists and curators, to create the conditions for their public expression and, as a result, to develop the modern art community.
The 7th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art will be comprised of 4 programmes:
• Main Project
• Special Programme
• Educational Programme
• Parallel Programme
Emerging artists are encouraged to submit open call applications to create three objects of site-specific art for three internal facades of the Museum of Moscow.
Artists and curators can submit their applications by 1 March 2019 through the Biennale website: http://youngart.ru/.
A 10-project shortlist will be drawn up by the Board of Experts, whereas the international jury will go on to select 3 winners from the shortlist.
The Moscow International Biennale for Young Art will take place in Moscow from 13 July to 13 September 2020. Traditionally held in summer, the upcoming Biennale for Young Art will now last until mid-September to coincide with many major events in the city: summer festivals, Moscow City Day, and the Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair.
The Main Project of the 7th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art will consist of two parts devised by the Biennale’s Board of Experts with the help of an open call: a curatorial project – to be housed by the Museum of Moscow (at least one, but no more than three), and 3 artist projects – to be shown in the space of the Museum.
There is no entry fee to participate!
Artists and curators from all parts of the world are invited to submit applications for the 7th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art.
