The main project of the 7th Moscow International Biennale of Contemporary Art Clouds⇄Forests took place in New Tretyakov Gallery (The State Tretyakov Gallery, 10, Krymsky Val, Moscow) from September 19, 2017 to January 18, 2018. It will last for four months for the first time in the history of the Moscow Biennale.
The curator of the 7th Moscow Biennale is Yuko Hasegawa, Artistic Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo and Professor of Tokyo University of the Arts. The project Clouds⇄Forests focuses on a new eco-system formed through a circulation of “Cloud Tribes,” who were born on the Internet cloud space, and “Forest Tribes” who are born on cultural origins. The works of the artists of the main project will be displayed in a dialogue with works from the permanent exhibition of The State Tretyakov Gallery.
Yuko Hasegawa, curator of the main project:
“Clouds⇄Forests focuses on artists as a creative tribe transitioning, expanding and dissipating, from forest to cloud, rebuilding the subjectivity of spectators and showing that creativity is vital to the creation of new environmental spheres. Taking into account perceptions on the generation of new subjective environmental spheres, the curatorial criteria for this exhibition includes giving life to new technologies as well as exploring ways to obtain animistic artistic languages and connect cultural roots, and leveraging the rhizome-based organic system to traverse history, genres, and media.”
