Take note – story published 7 years and 11 months ago

On Friday the joint Baltic Pavilion between Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania was unveiled at the Venice Biennale. It will be on show until November 27, the curators of the pavilion told the press.

The exhibition explores inter-regional infrastructural links, such as the Rail Baltic project, the shared connection to the Baltic Sea, and the landscapes created by energy networks connecting densely populated areas. 

The 1,600 square meter Baltic Pavilion at the Palasport Arsenale stadium features works by architects, photographers, writers, economists, and museums and organizations as well.

The Baltic Pavilion is a non-government initiative by nine curators from the Baltics. 

"I believe that the cooperation in creating the first Baltic Pavilion will make history both for Baltic relations and the Biennale.

The joint exhibition shows that socially conscious architecture is one of our priorities and we share not only infrastructure but common values," said Culture Minister Dace Melbārde (National Alliance) during the opening.
