Ekaterinburg, Prospekt Lenina, 49
The Ural Biennale was one of the largest events in Russian modern art. It presented a new view of industrial modernity.
The main goal of this new biennial, which was founded by the Urals filial of the National Centre of Contemporary Arts (Ekaterinburg) with support from the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, was to reveal the artistic potential of the Ekaterinburg and Ural regions, which have traditionally been famous as centers of metallurgical and technical production. The biennial looked at the industrial nature of these regions not only as a context for the production of modern art, which could revive these depressed industrial zones, but as a living manifestation of modernity, both intriguing and provocative.
Curators of the main project: Ekaterina Degot (Moscow), David Riff (Moscow/Berlin), Cosmin Costinas (Amsterdam – Utrecht).
ArtManagement was the official press agent for the Ural Biennale in Moscow.
