Mongolian artists B.Nomin and Ts.Ariuntugs will participate in documenta 14, a contemporary art exhibition which takes place every five years in Kassel, Germany, by the invitation of curator Adam Szymczyk. .
The 14th documenta exhibition, also known as the “museum of 100 days”, will be organized from June 10 to September 17. Last October, documenta curators visited Mongolia for the first time and decided to invite two Mongolian artists to participate in the 2017 exhibition.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Sports are sponsoring the participation of B.Nomin and Ts.Ariuntugs. The Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association has been selected to act as documenta’s official Mongolian partner.
Documenta is considered as one of the world’s three major contemporary art events after the Venice Biennale and Art Basel. Mongolia first participated in the 2015 Venice Biennale, opening doors for more Mongolian artists to gain access to the international art world.
