Under A Tinsel Sun is the title of the III Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, which has been opened in July 2012. The organizers are the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Department of Culture of the City of Moscow, the National Centre for Contemporary Art (NCCA), Moscow, and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMoMA), in collaboration with Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.). Its curator is Kathrin Becker, Berlin.
The III Moscow International Biennale for Young Art 2012, as its forerunners, focuses on a young generation of artists aged up to 35 years. Titled Under A Tinsel Sun and laid out as a multimedia project, it portrays the heterogeneity of subjects, languages and styles, which are so urgent in this generation, and at the same time looks into the content-related positioning of these artists born between the mid-1970s and the mid-1980s, as well as into the conditions for their development in terms of content. Under A Tinsel Sun assumes that, despite the cultural, economic and social differences that may exist between the participants from different countries, there is a common factor in the impossibility of locating oneself by belonging to certain peer groups(whether in the ideological or in the artistic sense).
