During the biennial - which is titled ”Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More” and is curated by Katerina Gregos - 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.
