How to gather? Acting in a Center in a City in the Heart of the Island of Eurasia

Under challenging circumstances, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art opts for a radical format and changes its structure: the biennale will be condensed into ten days. Artistic, discursive and reflective moments will shape the space. Located in the Pavilion No.1 of VDNKh, it is here that the Moscow Biennale will evolve, as a think tank in real time.

Biennale: Sept 22 - Oct 1, 2015
Documentary exhibition project: Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2015

Inventing Ritual, 2015

“Inventing Ritual” is a 30-40 minutes performance created by more than 20 artists. “Inventing Ritual ” constitutes an innovative method of “diffusion” for Chinese contemporary culture and art. Artists proceed to a ritual practice by itinerating art and creations throughout the world, promoting Chinese culture, and enhancing the understanding of the West about Chinese contemporary culture. “Inventing Ritual” transmits the excellence of Chinese traditional culture, combined with Chinese contemporary inventive spirit. The notion of “Made in China” becomes “Created in China”: a new image of China’s contemporary culture is built, revealing its strength and freshness.
