The Main Project of the VII Moscow International Biennale for Young Art will consist of two parts devised by the Biennale’s Board of Experts with the help of open calls for: 1. curatorial project(s) to be housed by the Museum of Moscow (at least one but up to three will be selected) and 2. artist projects, three of which will also be shown in the museum.

All curators aged under 35 whose projects include works by solo artists or artist collectives are eligible to apply. The project for the main venue of the Biennale will be selected by the Board of Experts.

Emerging artists are encouraged to submit applications to create three objects of site-specific art for three internal facades of the Museum of Moscow. A shortlist of 10 projects will be drawn up by the Board of Experts and an international jury will then select 3 winners from the shortlist.

The Moscow International Biennale for Young Art is one of the largest and most ambitious projects in the sphere of contemporary art in Russia. The Biennale’s goals are to bring attention to new names, to support and encourage the creative initiatives of artists and curators of the new generation, to create the conditions for their public expression and, as a result, the development of the modern art community.
