Re-enchanting the World. Małgorzata Mirga-Tas

ERIAC is honoured to be able to partner with the Polish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. For the first time in the over-120-year history of the International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, a Roma artist is representing a national pavilion. The project Re-enchanting the World by Małgorzata Mirga-Tas, prepared specifically for the Polish Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2022, is an attempt to find the place of the Roma community in European art history. The exhibition, which consists of twelve large-format textiles installation, alludes to the famous ‘Hall of the Months’ fresco series from the Renaissance Palazzo Schifanoia in Ferrara, Italy, one of the most mysterious buildings in European architecture. The project is curated by Wojciech Szymański and Joanna Warsza. 

Seeing the Romani artist in the Polish Pavilion is a historical milestone towards more just and equitable La Biennale di Venezia.
