Roscongress Foundation Supports Contemporary Art

The Roscongress Foundation is serving as a partner for the first time for the opening of the 8th Moscow International Biennale of Contemporary Art, one of the main cultural projects created and held with the support of the Russian Ministry of Culture. The curators of the project are theatre director Dmitry Chernyakov and architect Sergei Choban. Halla bint Khalid (Saudi Arabia), Rashid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa (Bahrain), Mohammed Khoja (Saudi Arabia), Leila (Azerbaijan), and other famous contemporary artists have brought their works to the Moscow Biennale.

“The Moscow International Biennale of Contemporary Art is a landmark event for all connoisseurs of culture. The artists’ works touch upon the pressing issues of our time and make us think about the future of mankind, the values that guide people today, and the role of the individual in the world. The event was sponsored by the socially-oriented non-financial development institution Roscongress Foundation. The Foundation regularly supports major events in our country’s capital cities, including within the framework of the cultural programmes of its own international events,” Adviser to the Russian President Anton Kobyakov said.

One of the world’s leading museums, Albertina (Vienna, Austria), served as a partner of the Biennale. The masterpieces of 11 artists of the 20th century will be brought from the museum’s collection. In total, the main project of the Moscow Biennale presents the works of 34 artists from 11 countries: Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Germany, Italy, China, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, the United States, Russia, and France.

“The Moscow Biennale has become one of the key internationally recognized cultural events over the years it’s been held. Artists and connoisseurs of contemporary art from around the world take part in the event”, Russian Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky said.

The theme of the main project at the Biennale is ‘Focusing on Landscapes’. The project will be on display at the main exhibition space of the State Tretyakov Gallery located at 10 Krymsky Val. The exhibition takes up a total area of 2,500 square meters.

The 8th Moscow International Biennale of Contemporary Art will be open to visitors from 31 October 2019 until 22 January 2020.
