Born in Riga in 1986. Lives and works in Basel.

Egija Inzule embodies the nomadic life of a curator working internationally, a life more typically associated with an artist. Last year’s projects took place in Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Kunsthalle Zürich, Istituto Svizzero di Roma, kim? Contemporary Art Centre in Riga, Palais de Tokyo and castillo/corrales in Paris. Her curatorial focus is thematic and centers around cases in which artistic production tries to negotiate the process of social commitment. Since 2015 she has been organizing a touring exhibition on the archive of Fred Lonidier, an artist and photographer from San Diego whose work from the 1970s is characterized by a strong sense of social commitment.
