Baltic Triennial Reveals Artist List for Its Thirteenth Edition

The Thirteenth Baltic Triennial has announced the complete list of artists participating in its upcoming exhibition, which for the first time will take place in three countries. The exhibition will kick off at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, Lithuania, on May 11; the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Estonia in Tallinn on June 29; and at the kim? Contemporary Art Centre in Riga, Latvia, on September 21.

Titled “Give Up the Ghost,” the exhibition will try to answer what it means “to belong at a time of fractured identities” and invites artists to “think beyond identity as something fixed, self-contained, and essentialized.” Each country will tackle a different issue. The presentation in Lithuania, which will form the largest portion of the triennial, will question concepts of territories and social bodies. The Estonia section will focus on how sensuality and intimacy factor into one’s sense of belonging, and Latvia’s chapter will present a series of performances and events that explore measures of generosity and humility. Following his appointment as the exhibition’s artistic director, Vincent Honoré declared that this year’s triennial would be “one of the most experimental events of its kind.”
