Raqs Media Collective Appointed as Artistic Director for Yokohama Triennale 2020

1 week ago

The Organizing Committee for Yokohama Triennale has announced the appointment of Raqs Media Collective as the artistic director of Yokohama Triennale 2020.

Ahead of its 20th anniversary, the triennale seeks to reassess and shift its position by joining forces with Raqs Media Collective, a New Delhi-based collective consisting of Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula, and Shuddhabrata Sengupta.

Selected on the basis of its highly intellectual and polemical approach, the collective is notable for its originality and inquisitive attitude. Active as artists, curators, and producers, the group is versatile and collaborative, working frequently with architects, computer programmers, writers, curators, and theater directors. Among the major biennales and exhibitions they have curated are the Shanghai Biennale, Why Not Ask Again (2016) and most recently In the Open or in Stealth (2018) at Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA).
