The Moscow Biennale has revealed the artist list for its 2017 edition, which will be curated by Yuko Hasegawa. (The news had been first reported in Russian by Afisha Daily.) Titled “Clouds ⇄ Forests,” the biennial opens on September 19 and runs through January 18, 2018.

Some 52 artists are set to participate in the main sector of the biennial’s seventh edition, which will explore “a new eco-system formed through a circulation of ‘Cloud Tribes,’ who were born on the Internet cloud space, and ‘Forest Tribes’ who are born on cultural origins,” according to a statement. The works by these artists will be on view at Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery. An app will also be produced, allowing viewers to access information about pieces by Björk, Matthew Barney, Pierre Huyghe, Ryan Trecartin, and others.
