Małgorzata Mirga-Tas will represent Poland at the Biennale Arte 2022
We know the winners of the competition for the curatorial project of the exhibition in the Polish Pavilion at the 59th International Art Exhibition — La Biennale di Venezia. The jury has chosen project by artist Małgorzata Mirga-Tas Re-enchanting the World proposed by curators Wojciech Szymański and Joanna Warsza. This exceptionally appealing visually project by the Polish-Roma artist is an attempt to broaden the Polish and European iconosphere and art history with representations of Roma culture. Referring to the title of the 59th edition of the Biennale (Milk of Dreams), the artist will create a magical world, subjected to constant “re-enchanting”, which will become a kind of refuge for the audience — an asylum offering hope and respite. The Biennale Arte 2022 is scheduled to open on 23 April 2022.
Małgorzata Mirga-Tas is a Polish-Romani artist and activist.
