The Sixth Moscow International Biennale of Contemporary Art has concluded just recently. The main project located in the central pavilion of VDNKh, was titled «How to gather? Acting in a center in a city in the heart of the island of Eurasia». Curators of the main project were — Bart De Baere, Defne Ayas and Nicolaus Schafhausen. More than seventy Russian and international artists, critics and researchers have met in Moscow to try to bring closer the contemporary art and understanding of it to the audience by creating a system where the art and visitors would interact directly.

Traditionally the budget of the Moscow Biennale is formed through finances provided by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Government of Moscow, as well as grants of art foundations of various countries, sponsors' and private donations. The largest part of financial support comes from the Ministry of Culture. The support of the Ministry allows Biennale to upkeep the high standard, as well as contributes to the further development of the Biennale project in Russia — in the country which can be proud of its artistic heritage.
