Faena Art presents highlights from the Biennale of Moving Images, a co-production with the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève. Under the artistic direction of Andrea Bellini in collaboration with Cecilia AlemaniCaroline Bourgeois and Elvira Dyangani Ose, the Biennale of Moving Images is a one-of-a-kind hybrid event bringing together visual artists, film directors and performers. This marks the 15th edition of the Biennale of Moving Images and the first time that it will be presented in the United States. 

Unlike most biennials, the BIM is unique in its exclusive presentation of new works that have been commissioned and produced for the occasion with no specific curatorial theme to respond to. 

This "un-curated" exhibition centers on the artists and their interpretations of the current socio-political moment as a means of addressing the shifting territories of the moving image in the contemporary art. Ultimately, the works included seem to reveal several common themes that might be considered representative of this cultural moment and atmosphere. Figuring prominently in the exhibition are works that address: the transmutation of gender, the female figure and politics of gender; the general sense of foreboding, anxiety and apprehension in our current cultural climate worldwide; and questions of displacement, labor and the exploitation of resources.

Comprising a wide array of multimedia installations, films and documentaries usually shown in cinemas, the Biennale of Moving Images is situated somewhere between a cinema festival, a constellation of solo video installations and a site for research and experimentation. 

Of the 28 original commissions for the biennial’s first presentation in Geneva, Faena Art will present seven video installations throughout the Faena Bazaar and Faena Park by Sophia Al MariaKarimah AshaduPauline Boudry & Renate LorenzBrian BressSalomé LamasJillian MayerWu Tsang and Emily Wardill which will be complemented by an open air screening program in the patio of the Faena Bazaar and in the Faena Hotel screening room featuring Yuri AncaraniBertille BakMassimo D’Anolfi & Martina ParentiAlessio Di ZioBodil FuruJenna HasseEmilie JouvetParis KainEvangelia KraniotiJillian MayerBoris Mitić, and Kerry Tribe.
