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

Screening - Maria Thereza Alves and Jimmie Durham

26 SEPTEMBER
14:00 - 22:00hrs

Maria Theresa Alves and Jimmie Durham are both artists with their own distinguished artistic career, with very different topics of attention and modes of realization. They are an artist couple and their video work is more intimately intertwined than may seem, not only because of a couple of joint video’s, but also because of Alves being the camerawoman for all of Durham’s video works. For the Moscow biennial they present for the first time ever a joint program, with both some of their most well-known video’s – such as Durham’s spaghetti western ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ starring Anri Sala - and some that have rarely been presented.
