Dorota Gawęda is an artist based in Basel. Since 2013, she has been working collaboratively with Eglė Kulbokaitė. The performative installation by Gaweda and Kulbokaite investigate the act of reading as an intimate experience, holding the potentiality to become public performance through the “outlouding” of words.

She graduated from Royal College of Art in London in 2012. Together with Kulbokaitė, they have exhibited at 6th Moscow Biennale, MMOMA; Cell Project Space, London; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Amanda Wilkinson Gallery, London; Kunstverein Freiburg; CAC, Vilnius; Kunsthalle Basel; ICA, London; SMK, Kopenhagen; Kunstverein Düsseldorf; MOMA, Warsaw; Berlin Biennale 9; CCS Bard; Kunsthalle Zürich; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris among others. Upcoming shows: 13th Baltic Triennial; Still I Rise, Nottingham Contemporary; and 6th Athens Biennale.

Dorota will be in residence at Art in General from August 1–October 15, 2018, through the support of FUTURA and the International Visegrad Fund.
