Venice Biennale Arte Success

Cass postgraduate alumna is Assistant Curator on Golden Lion winning Lithuanian Pavilion.

Date: 4 June 2019

Caterina Avataneo, a postgraduate alumna in Curating from the Cass (with Whitechapel Gallery), is the assistant curator of Sun & Sea (Marina) the award-winning Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th Biennale Arte in Venice.

Curated by Lucia Pietroiusti and featuring work by Lina Lapelyte, Vaiva Grainyte and Rugile Barzdziukaite. Sun & Sea (Marina) was awarded the Golden Lion for the best national participation at the Venice Biennale 2019. The stunning installation uses the presentation of a day at the beach - including an opera -to provide a chilling commentary on climate change. Although it has triumphed critically and with audiences, Sun & Sea (Marina) requires ongoing investment to run its opera event and the organisers are continuing to fundraise with the public via Indiegogo.
