BT14: A day & night of talks, performances and music
A week before the official closure of the Baltic Triennial's 14th edition, the 27th of August marks the final week with a day and night of gatherings at the CAC and Empty Brain Resort. Echoing the central queer stance of the exhibition, this event highlights the present and past of the Triennial in tandem with urgent questions regarding non-normative agencies and positions in Central and Eastern European region. The event is articulated around discourse, performance and celebration. The day kicks-off with a look back towards the first edition of the Triennial with the Artists’ Association members sharing personal experiences about that seminal meeting. The event continues with a lecture by Joanna Zielińska addressing the queer potential of institutions and a series of presentations and a collective conversation on queer practices by Agnė Jokšė, Edvinas Grinkevičius, Karol Radziszewski, and Laima Kreivytė. This first part of the event concludes by sunset with performances by Ania Nowak and Antanas Lučiūnas. The nocturnal festivities open with the cabaret performance by Edvinas Grinkevičius/Querelle and continue with a live act of Liudmila (Milda Januševičiūtė and Miša Skalskis). As the night becomes dusk the sounds of Caline with C and The Social Lover will draw our bodies together in a dancing celebration of The Endless Frontier.
