As part of European Capital of Culture events in Riga, the international contemporary art exhibition "Re:visited" will take place, where works of art by some of the world’s best known contemporary artists will be displayed.
The exhibition will take place from March 14 to April 27 at the Riga Art Space, and will feature art works by various international artists recently represented at the most significant art biennials and shows abroad, such as "Manifesta" , the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, the Venice Biennial, the "Documenta" exhibition in Kassel, the Istanbul Biennial and others.
The curator of the exhibition Solvita Krese explains the concept of show: "Re:visited" is not an attempt to create a puzzle or a mosaic, a kind of an anthology of biennials or an overview of the latest art events. The exhibition is a subjective view that tends to zoom in on otherness reflected in various forms of knowledge. Different experiences rooted in a multiplicity of cultures and social textures may create tension between affiliation and non-affiliation, between inclusion and exclusion or extrusion, she points out.
