Canadian exposition

Yvonne Feng. Hardship. Canada

For this reason, Canada is a diverse, multicultural country. This diversity is reflected in the artworks of fifty-two young Canadians from across eastern, central, and western Canada who have created contemporary art ranging from multimedia, digital photography, and pictorial soundscapes, to video and rotoscoping. For Eksperimenta!, these young artists have explored the theme of space in a variety of uniquely Canadian ways. Read more

Inga Raukas from Allianss Arhitektid shared the story of how the Eksperimenta! exhibition area is created and completed.

How were the concept and solution of the E! triennial area created?
The idea for the exhibition of the art triennial for school students was to create a backdrop for the artworks themselves that is as versatile as possible, easy to build and transform and at the same time neutral enough to make the art, rather than the design, stand out.
