The 5th Moscow Biennale for Young Art Signals Millennials’ Deepest Anxieties
July 8, 2016
The Biennial’s two “strategic projects,” by contrast, were coherent and well paced. João Laia’s “H Y P E R C O N N E C T E D” used each of the multiple levels at the Moscow Museum of Modern art to explore an interlinked theme, notably showing multiple works by many of the artists. This allowed for something approaching meaningful insight into the artists’ investigation of particular ideas and themes (this change of pace was also essayed in Manifesta 11’s co-curated historical exhibition, albeit on an overwhelming scale-trendwatchers take note.)
