David Elliott chose the title of the IV Moscow International Biennale for Young Art A Time for Dreams by rephrasing the famous “I have a dream” speech by Martin Luther King. With this title, the curator emphasizes the chronic instability of our time and the acute need for the young generation to have dreams, hopes and opportunities, to not blindly go with the flow but to invest their strength into the perfection of the world. A Time for Dreams will include the work of over a hundred artists under the age of 35 chosen from across the world. Focusing on both present and future, moving between concern with microcosms and universes, this exhibition will resound as a polyphony of individual perspectives interwoven by different aesthetic and cultural traditions. Just as in Martin Luther King’s still unfulfilled dream, the dream of good art, however it is made and wherever it comes from, has to be rooted in truth, ethics and belief in life.

Works submitted to the Biennale may be those of Russian or foreign artists of the new generation, working in the field of contemporary art with the latest strategies, concepts, and techniques (individual, collective, or as part of curatorial projects). Artists of the new generation are defined as those whose age at the time of the opening of the Biennale does not exceed 35 years. The right to apply for participation in the Biennale is limited to the authors of projects (artists and curators in the case of a curatorial project). Applications for the strategic projects of the Biennale for curators (curator groups) are received regardless of financial means. The application process is free. Authors and curators will not receive payment. The artistic director of the biennale will consider all applications and compile a selection of participants in the Biennale.

Institutions are invited to collaborate and young artists and curators to participate.
