ERIAC is proud of Polish-Roma artist Małgorzata Mirga-Tas ‘Re-enchanting the World’ in Venice

ERIAC is proud to partner with the Polish Pavilion’s exhibition project for Biennale Arte 2022, by the Polish-Roma artist and activist Małgorzata Mirga-Tas. The Re-enchanting the World project at the 59th International Art Exhibition is an attempt to expand the Polish and European iconosphere and art history with representations of Roma culture. Adhering to the title of this year’s edition of the Biennale Arte (The Milk of Dreams), the artist will create a magical world, constantly subjected to re-enchantment, proposing a kind of temporary and adventurous asylum to give viewers hope and respite.

It is of historical importance, that next to the fourth Roma Exhibition at Venice Biennale, Eugen Raportoru: The Abduction from the Seraglio & Roma Women: Performative Strategies of Resistance, collateral event commissioned by ERIAC, an artist of Roma origin is displaying her art at a National Pavilion.
