Raimundas Malašauskas (born in Vilnius, lives and works in Brussels) is a curator, writer and tutor at the Sandberg Institute. From 1995 to 2006, he worked at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, where he produced the first two seasons of the weekly television show CAC TV, an experimental merger of commercial television and contemporary art that ran under the slogan “Every program is a pilot, every program is the final episode.” He co-curated “Black Market Worlds,” the IX Baltic Triennial, at CAC Vilnius in 2005. From 2007 to 2008, he was a visiting curator at California College of the Arts, San Francisco, and, until recently, a curator-at-large of Artists Space, New York. In 2007, he co-wrote the libretto of Cellar Door, an opera by Loris Gréaud produced in Paris. Malašauskas curated the exhibitions “Sculpture of the Space Age,” David Roberts Art Foundation, London (2009); “Into the Belly of a Dove,” Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City (2010), and “Repetition Island,” Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2010). His other recent projects, Hypnotic Show and Clifford Irving Show, are ongoing. Malasauskas is an agent for dOCUMENTA 13 and on the advisory board of Kunstverein.
In collaboration with Kunstverein Publishing, Sternberg Press, Sandberg Institute and The Baltic Notebooks by Anthony Blunt, Malašauskas has published an anthology of his writings since 1998, which will be launched on the evening.
The already infamous Vilnius Sling cocktail will be served at cocktailbar Door 74, reguliersdwarsstraat 74, from 22.00 onwards.
