Riga International Biennial Of Contemporary Art (RIBOCA)
2 June 2018 - 28 October 2018
Curated by Katherina Gregos
The title of first edition of RIBOCA, Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More, is borrowed from the book written by the Russian author Alexei Yurchak of the same name. The book references the paradox of sudden but expected social and political change as it occurred in the Soviet Union. Taking the title of Yurchak’s book as a metaphor for the present moment of accelerated transitions, the exhibition will reflect on the process of change and how this is registered, anticipated, experienced, grasped, assimilated and dealt with at a time of rapid transformations.
