The participation of seven Swedish artists in the Riga Biennial of International Contemporary Art is a result of an expert visit organised by the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists, Iaspis.

The seven artists participating in the art Riga biennial which runs from June to October 2018 are Johanna Gustafsson-Fürst, Johannes Heldén, Håkan Jonson, Kerstin Hamilton, Petra Bauer, Rebecka Katz-Thor and Saskia Holmkvist.
 
The Swedish participation is largely an effect of the expert visit organised by Iaspis for the curator of the biennial, Katerina Gregos, in the autumn of 2017. Invited to Sweden to meet Swedish artists, Gregos also held a lecture on the representation of the refugee crisis in contemporary art.
