From 21 September to 18 November 2018, the 13th Baltic Triennial exhibition was held in the Kim? Contemporary Art Centre in Rīga, Latvia. Since its launch in 1979, the 13th Baltic Triennial was organised (for the first time!) by all three Baltic States: Lithuania (from 11 May to 12 August), Estonia (from 29 June to 2 September) and Latvia (from 21 September to 18 November).

Three different expositions with more than 60 artists from around the world took part at it. All expositions of the 13th Baltic Triennial were aimed to attract attention on the meaning of belonging in the era of dissecting identities. The exhibition, cinema sessions and performances at Kim? examined issues relating to social norms, relations and structures. The title of the Triennial TO GET RID OF GHOSTS invited people to stop identify themselves with something – social gender, race, territory, or a group of society. It is a place of chaos – a place where objects can co-exist together with each other and not to be in contradiction or in opposition. 

The project was implemented by the Kim? Contemporary Art Centre, the Vilnius Contemporary Art Centre and the Estonian Contemporary Art Centre.
