In the summer of 2018, the gallery's represented artists Nedko Solakov and Valio Tchenkov will participate in the First Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art (RIBOCA1) titled ”Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More”, curated by Katerina Gregos.
2 June - 28 October 2018
A total of 99 artists including 10 collectives are participating in the biennial.
Almost a third of the participating artists are from the Baltic countries, while almost 70% of the total are from the Baltic region (including Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Germany). The rest of the artists come from countries as diverse as Korea, Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, South Africa, the United States and Canada, as well as Russia, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Greece, Bulgaria and the United Kingdom.
During the biennial 113 works - including 49 new commissions - will be shown in nine different venues across Riga. There will also be 10 public sculptures and site-specific interventions in various locations around the city. Many of the participating artists will present more than one work, appearing in several of the venues, thus providing an opportunity for visitors to gain a more in-depth insight into their practice.
