6th KAZAN INTERNATIONAL PRINTMAKING BIENNALE "RIDER"

 

October - November 2021

 

Kazan International Printmaking Biennale has been held since 2011. In 2015, it received the name "Rider" in honor of the creative group of graphic artists "Rider", the activity of which in the 1920s turned Kazan into one of the centers for the development of graphic art in Russia.

Objectives of the Kazan Biennale are to stimulate interest in various types of printmaking; to promote the development of both traditional (etching, aquatint, dry point, incisor engraving, lithography, linocut, woodcut, mezzotinto, etc.), and the latest author's techniques of printmaking (excluding digital printing); to expand the creative possibilities for the graphic artists; to promote the exchange of art and practical experience of the artists from different cities, regions and countries, demonstrating the works of modern masters of printmaking from Russia and abroad, conducting master classes by the leading masters of printmaking.

The motto of the 6th Kazan International Biennale of Printed Graphics "Rider", held in the Year of Native Languages and National Unity in the Republic of Tatarstan: Это я! Бу – мин! That’s me! C’est moi! Das bin ich! Questo sono io! Soy yo! Se olen mina! Det är jag! Tas esmu es! Ку – эпӗ! Тиде – мый!..

The goal of the 2021 Biennale is to encourage artists to think about themselves and the fate of their country, their people, their native language; to stimulate various aspects of artists’ self-reflection- national, linguistic, age, gender, professional, etc.; to help them comprehend the language of graphic art as one of the forms of development of their personality and try to express their identity in various forms of printmaking.

The main exhibitions of the Biennale will be displayed in the halls of the “Khazine” National Art Gallery of the State Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan in the Kazan Kremlin.
