The Archstoyanie Land Art Festival, Russia’s largest land art and architecture festival, has released the dates and theme for its 2017 edition.

Taking place from 21 — 23 July, Archstoyanie takes “How to live?” as its theme next year — a question to which all participating artists and architects must respond in their work.

The festival’s curator will be Anton Kochurkin, head of the 8 Lines architecture agency and co-founder of the festival. Among the participants already selected are Recycle, the architecture bureau Wowhaus and Alycha art group.

Established in 2006, Archstoyanie sees art lovers flock to the Russian village of Nikola-Lenivets, approximately 200 kilometres southwest of Moscow on the banks of the river Ugra, to enjoy an expanding collection of land art. The festival has increased its scope in recent years to to include sculpture, lectures and sound installations.

More information can be found on the Archstoyanie website.
