It’s drawing ever closer, and still no news on the American Pavilion…


Daiga Grantina to represent Latvia at the Venice Biennale


In collaboration with the LatvianCentre4ContemporaryArt, the Kim? Contemporary Art Centre will take charge of the pavilion, of which the curation will be entrusted to Valentinas Klimašauskas and Inga Lace.


Born in Riga, 1985, and based in Paris, Daiga Grantina works primarily through sculpture and is represented by the Joseph Tang Gallery. Her work is currently being exhibited at the Palais de Tokyo. Her work has also been presented this year at the BALTIC Triennial 2018, and at the Panacée in Montpellier.

And… Tamás Waliczky to represent Bulgaria


Under the direction of Zsuzsanna Szegedy-Maszák, the Hong Kong-based artist (b.1959) will present a project titled “Cameras”.


Incorporating computers into his work since the early 1980s, the artist won the Golden Nica at the Prix Ars Electronica in 1989. His work features in the Centre Pompidou collections.
