Ioana Leca is the Artistic Director of Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art.
Ioana Leca is a curator and cultural strategist, currently active as Artistic Director of Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art (GIBCA), where she is looking into testing possibilities for the biennial format to closely respond to its site and be a generous experimentation platform for artists and curators. Recent projects include the editions in 2017, 2019 and 2021 of the biennial, together with curators Nav Haq and Lisa Rosendahl, a series of public programmes on remembrance and memorialization in public space and in public discourse, as well as the contribution to the publication Biennials as Sites of Historical Narration (Mousse Publishing, 2022).
