ARTMOSSPHERE is the first and only street art biennale in the world, which introduces the most outstanding representatives of street art from around the world to the general public and creates a platform for development of the local street art community.
The main project of the Biennale took place in Winzavod in 2018 in the format of a collective exhibition of street artists who entered the field of contemporary art from the graffiti environment and other practices of working with urban space. Many of them went through the experience of unauthorized creative activity in the city, bringing characteristic themes, techniques and methods to the exhibition space, and inheriting the specific visual characters of the street.
The Biennale is held once every two years in the format of a large collective exhibition at the central venues of Moscow, as well as in the city spaces. All works are unique and created by the participants in the format of an art residence directly in Moscow.
In 2016, the main project of the 2nd ATMOSSPHERE Biennale "The Invisible Wall" was shortlisted for The Art Newspaper Russia award as the exhibition of the year, along with the exhibitions "Masterpieces of the Vatican Pinacotheca" in the State Tretyakov Gallery and "Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection " in the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris.
The project is implemented with a grant from the Presidential Grants Fund.
