28 August 2013 | The Moscow Biennale has just released the full list of artists selected for their upcoming fifth edition. This expands upon the Australian contingent announced by the Australia Council a fortnight ago.

Twin sister collaborative Gabriella and Silvana Mangano and Aboriginal-Irish artist Lorrainne Connelly-Northey join the list of Australian artists whose work will be at the biennale.

The Mangano sisters will exhibit their
Sculpture Sequence film, still pictured above, and Lorraine Connelly-Northey will exhibit her Three Rivers Country installation, shown below.

The Mangano sisters and Connelly-Northey will join Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan, Richard Bell, Jumaadi Jumaadi, Gosia Wlodarczak and Simryn Gill as confirmed Australian exhibitors at the biennale. This list means Australian artists will comprise a significant percentage of the total artists selected for the main project, where 72 individual and collaborative artists from over 40 countries will exhibit.

The fifth Moscow Biennale,
Bolshe Sveta/More Light is curated by by Catherine de Zegher, whose experience includes curating the Australian Pavilion at this year's Venice Biennale and guest curating the department of drawings at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The main project will be shown in the central exhibition hall of Manege, situated next to the Kremlin in the centre of Moscow, from 20 September until 20 October 2013.
