The First Moscow Biennale (January 28 –February 28, 2005) generated great response both in Russia and abroad, and made serious steps towards becoming a respectable international event. The main exhibition, “Dialectics of Hope”, presented projects by 41 artists from 22 countries, the idea behind the project was in defining the 21st century visual arts movement. There was also a number of special projects introducing trends in the Russian contemporary art. The Biennale’s special projects and parallel program included over 50 exhibitions opening an unprecedented showcase of Russian actual art as well as European, American and Asian visual artists. The Second Moscow Biennale (March 1 –April 1, 2007) proved the success of this large international show. The main project titled “FOOTNOTES on Geopolitics, Market and Amnesia” showed works of 115 artists from 20 countries. 5 exhibitions of the main project united by one theme were realized by different curators and curatorial teams.
