The Ural Industrial Biennial is the largest international project in the field of contemporary art in the Russian Federation. It works with the industrial specifics of the region and explores industriality as historical heritage and a current practice, which involves many people and spaces.
From 9th of September to 1st of December, using contemporary art as a vehicle, the Biennal will analyzes current changes around the world and integrates the region into the global artistic context.
It was first organized in 2010 at the initiative of the Ural branch of the National Center for Contemporary Art and is held every two years in Ekaterinburg and other Ural region cities. The Ural Biennial actively works with operational factories; the exhibition projects as well as an artist-in-residence program are held on factory sites, which offers artists a unique interaction with industrial manufacturing in the Ural region. Works created by artists during their stay at the Ural factories are shown at the final exhibition of the artist-in-residence program.
