Edvinas Grinkevičius

Edvinas Grinkevičius is a curator, cultural worker and drag/performance artist, based in Kaunas. The broad spectre of his practice consists of curatorial and artistic activities, all connected through an active interest in leftist and queer-feminist politics and practices, which aim to provide transformative potential, especially within institutionalised structures.

Grinkevičius has been a curator at the Kaunas Artists’ House since 2017. In 2019, he initiated the programme ‘Unlearning Eastern Europe’. In 2021, together with art historian and curator Rebeka Poldsam, he started the Baltic queer art and politics network Black Rose. Black Carnation.

In 2016 Grinkevičius was one of the initiators of the counter-culture queer movement WE ARE PROPAGANDA, which he continues to co-curate today. That same year marked the beginning of terrorist drag DJ performances under the artist’s alter ego – drag persona Querelle.
