‘Printmaking iN` / Riga
Opening 29 Juli 2016
ABOUT: Printmaking festival ‘Printmaking iN’ in Estonia that’s going on already for 17 years.
Roots come from this organisation – www.nongrata.ee.
Next year 2016 it will take a step onto Latvian soil and part of it will happen in Riga.
To put it simple, it’s a bunch of exhibitions in multiple spots opened in one day, like a big zigzag through the city.
WHEN: The question is, would you like to participate in this? openings on july 29th 2016 in Riga. Openings in Estonia day or two earlier.
WORKS: Your scenographic and object like works would work really good in the exhibition place – a floating gallery in Riga.
EXHIBITION SPACE: There are 3 small, compact rooms in the basement – concrete walls, little round windows, like a proper ship. And it would be a group exhibition with few other scandinavian artists. Each would have 1 room (9x3m approx). and it works like a little solo show in each of those little rooms.
Printmaking festival “Back into the Chaos” in Riga is an international art project with participants – printmakers representing the whole globe – Baltic states (Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania), Nordic countries (Finland, Denmark, Sweden) and USA, China. Project contains powerful imagery, mind blowing printmaking skills, sometimes strong language and steady relationship between so many artists from so different countries. Working in such techniques as linocut, woodcut, screen print and lithography, also experimental, mixed media, ‘Live Print’, performances and all kinds of collaborations between printmaking and other art media
