GIBCA reception in Venice 2019
The list of participating artist to the 10th edition of the biennial has been released on May 9th during a reception in Venice!
It is the forth time for the biennial to organise a reception in the opening week of the large biennale project. The reception was organised in collaboration with Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF) and offered the guests information on the coming two Nordic projects, as well as music and performance acts by Swedish and Norwegian artists. During the reception, the curators Lisa Rosendahl (GIBCA) and Hilde Methi (LIAF) presented the programme of the two biennials and their themes. The evening continued with a performance by Nils Beck Silas Henriksen, a video dj set by Eric Magassa and club Addis Dakar and a DJ-set by Björn Torske.
The reception serves as a meeting place for national as well as international press and professionals and is an important part of the work of creating interest in the Swedish contemporary art scene, Gothenburg's cultural life and Västra Götaland region.
