A Time for Dreams
Moscow Museum of Modern Art
17 Ermolaevsky Lane,
Curator David Elliot chose the theme for the IV Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, A Time for Dreams, by rephrasing the famous “I have a dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King. With this title, Elliot emphasises 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 strenght into the perfection of the world. A Time for Dreams features works by 83 artists hailing from 32 countries, all under the age of 35, including Tibetan artist Tenzing Rigdol whose work, My World is in Your Blind Spot, highlights the insecurity of Tibet’s future by drawing the recent increase in self-immolations by Tibetans to the viewers attention.
