One of the most important events in the art world, the La Biennale di Venezia 2017 (Venice Biennale 2017), will hold its 57th international art exhibition from May 13 to November 26, with the inclusion of five Mongolian artists. Mongolian artists are taking part in the Venice Biennale for the second time, after first taking part in 2015. A Mongolian pavilion has been commissioned by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia Ts.Munkh-Orgil, and will be organized by the Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association. The Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Center have announced the names of the artists who will be representing Mongolia at the Venice Biennale this year: State Honored Artist Ch.Chimeddorj, O.Enkhtaivan, G.Munkhbolor, J.Bolortuvshin, and Ts.Davaajargal. The Mongolian pavilion will host “Lost in Tengri” (Lost in Heaven), an exhibition about the frailty of human nature and its effect upon society and the environment. While the context of the exhibition is uniquely Mongolian, the curators believe its impact will be global and universal. O.Enkhtaivan and J.Bolortuvshin will present video works, while Ch.Chimeddorj and G.Munkhbolor will bring sculptural installations. Ts.Davaajargal will present a series of haunting sound installations that bring together sounds from nature and traditional and electronic music. MIAT Mongolian Airlines, Erel Group, Max Group, Eco Construction, Monnis Group, MCS Group, Bats Urgoo Co.,Ltd, Monre Impex, Deloitte Onch LLC, and individual patrons of the arts are sponsoring the Mongolian pavilion in 2017.
