Kyiv Biennial 2021 co-curated by Matter of Art opens on October 16th
The fourth edition of the Kyiv Biennial, an international forum for art, knowledge and politics that integrates exhibitions and discussion platforms, will take place from October 16th to November 14th, 2021. The upcoming edition – Allied – emphasizes cross-border collaboration and is jointly curated by members of the East Europe Biennial Alliance (EEBA): Biennale Matter of Art Prague, Biennale Warszawa, Kyiv Biennial, OFF-Biennale Budapest, and the Survival Kit Festival Riga.
The diverse biennial program will address various historical forms and contemporary examples of cultural and political alliances in Eastern Europe and beyond and their ability to create new social formats. Allied – Kyiv Biennial 2021 will present a series of art projects and educational events particularly focusing on the current conditions, political factors, and institutional actors that foster new alliances in the 21st century. Once again, the Kyiv Biennial will explore the architectural context of the city and the residuals of Soviet modernism – the main location of this year’s edition will be the House of Cinema.
