The 3rd Moscow Biennal of Contemporary Art provides a mixed bag from today's international art scene. With some 80 artists, including Kapoor, Anatsui, Delvoye, Sun Yuan and Peng Yu, the audience is offered both re-worked pieces that have appeared in many of the latest international shows and established Russian artists, featuring sculptural and object-based projects that highlight the national taste for collectable art objects.

En quatre ans et trois biennales, le paysage artistique moscovite s'est bien transformé. Les Russes ont trouvé une place sur la scène internationale : galeristes, collectionneurs et artistes qui manifestent invention et vitalité.

Two years ago the main show of the Moscow Biennale was on the umpteenth floor of an unfinished tower in the Moscow City skyscraper development. You accessed it very uncomfortably, in midwinter, by one of two external service lifts or up the unheated stairs. This year's biennale, organized by Josef Backstein, which runs Sept. 25-Oct. 25, 2009, has done better.

From mirror mazes in glittering shopping centres to the incongruous intimacy of nudes on Moscow's streets, via the bulldozing of "unofficial" Soviet-era art, the city's 3rd Biennale of Contemporary Art has scoured the globe to bring us the best, brightest and most challenging modern art from September 25 to October 25.

Russian art collective AES+F looks set to hit the headlines (again) in its home country with the launch of the "Defilé" series (2000-07) of lightbox works at the Garage Centre for Contemporary Culture (Moscow Biennale, 25 September-25 October). These images, seen at Miami's Bass Museum last year, show a selection of unidentified, wizened corpses digitally clad in haute couture clothing. "In granting these morbid forms a sense of dignity and beauty in death, in a sense an afterlife, we hope our audience will find something of value in this project," says AES+F. What kind of reaction will the macabre works get in the Russian capital, home of both the super rich and the impoverished?

Formerly director of the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Kunsthalle Bern, and the Paris Musée National des Arts d’Afrique et d’Océanie, Jean-Hubert Martin is perhaps still best known for his 1989 exhibition Magiciens de la terre, which featured fifty artists from the art world's "center" and fifty from its "margins", including many far removed from what is commonly thought of as "contemporary art". A member of the Kandinsky Prize jury, Martin has been deeply involved in Russian art for over thirty years.

Photographed in repeated crouching positions, the gender of the nude figures is rendered ambiguous; in some of Tunick's other images, he specifically groups subjects by gender and ethnicity. His process is a form of protest against the fundamental conventions of polite society, but also a reevaluation of the tradition of the nude as erotic symbol or exhibitionist performance.

The 3rd Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, Sept. 25-Oct. 25, 2009, takes place at Dasha Zhukova’s Garage Center for Contemporary Culture Moscow. Entitled "Against Exclusion," the show is organized by Jean-Hubert Martin, the celebrated curator of the ground-breaking "Magiciens de la terre" exhibition in 1989, who once again promises to bring works by artists from often marginalized sites in Africa and Oceania, this time juxtaposing them with contemporary Russian art. "Against Exclusion" is the first Moscow Biennale to be confined to a single exhibition space, and to be organized under the direction of a single curator.
