Born in Vilnius, Lithuania, curator Raimundas Malašauskas works internationally and writes on a wide range of topics. With characteristic wit and unpredictability, he interrogates the production of culture, and expands what it means to curate. “If there’s one curator who knows how to give new meaning to the concept of the ‘exhibition,'” writes Jennifer Teets in Metropolis M, “it’s Raimundas Malašauskas.”

His notable projects include co-writing the libretto of an opera in Paris; curating the Lithuanian and Cyprus Pavilions at the 55th Venice Biennale, Italy; and working as an agent for dOCUMENTA (13). In 
2012, his anthology Paper Exhibition: Selected Writings by Raimundas Malašauskas was published, a collaboratively edited “book that belongs to no one and is not needed by anyone,” as the author put it.

From 1995 to 2006, Malašauskas worked at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, where he produced a weekly television show, and curated Black Market Worlds, the IX Baltic Triennial, in 2005. He has since organized exhibitions at David Roberts Art Foundation, London; Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Lisson Gallery, London; and the 9th Bienal do Mercosul, Porto Alegre, Brazil, among others.

Co-presented with REDCAT, this lecture is part of MOCA’s new series focusing on the work and perspectives of contemporary curators. Read more about Raimundas Malašauskas in Frieze: http://frieze.com/issue/article/questionnaire-raimundas-malashauskas/
