On July 13, 2014, Biennial Foundation sent out a letter to Mrs. Oyungerel Tsedevdamba, Minister of Culture, Tourism and Sports of Mongolia, expressing support and sympathy for the biennial Land Art Mongolia, Mongolia’s first biennial of contemporary art, initiated by Marc Schmitz and Dolgor Ser-Od.
The letter was sent out right after the First General Assembly of the International Biennial Association (IBA) in Berlin, where Marieke van Hal, Director of Biennial Foundation, was appointed Vice-President of the International Biennial Association.
Land Art Mongolia in Ulaanbaatar is known as a valuable arts initiative in Mongolia and its editions in 2010 and 2012 regarded a success.
With its participants, the 3rd edition of Land Art Mongolia will contribute to a better understanding of genuinely Mongolian art and place its contemporaries on the global art map.
Biennial Foundation is happy to announce that the letter was positively received by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sports of Mongolia, as renewed funding by Mrs. Oyungerel Tsedevdamba has now been confirmed.
Biennial Foundation would like to thank Minister Oyungerel Tsedevdamba, who is also an author, a democracy activist and a human rights activist, for its renewed support and wishes Land Art Mongolia all the best with its upcoming edition.
