Said by Natasha Kurchanova, for Studio International, of the photographs included in A Time for Dreams "the best focus on exploring their subjects’ identities: Natalie Maximova’s intimate and touching portraits of Russian transgender people; Svetlana Yerkovich’s series of images of women wearing panther-patterned clothing; and Kate Elliott’s observant installation The Study of Peter Pan, which does just that – minutely and patiently studying a teenager’s face in a series of close-up photographs and a single-channel video, as if trying to discover a mark of transition from boyhood to manhood."

The Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, one of the largest and most ambitious projects in the field of contemporary art, combines the creative initiatives of artists of the new generation from Russia and abroad.
For this fourth edition of the Biennale artistic director David Elliott has chosen the title A Time for Dreams in acknowledgement of the chronic precariousness of our own times and the urgent need for the dreams and visions of younger and future generations to break the barrier of ‘things as they are’ to make things better.
The main project of the Biennale in 2014 will be presented in the Museum of Moscow. The educational programs of the Biennale will also be organized in collaboration with the museum.
