» Contemporary Latvian Art in Europe «


The European Central Bank offers the exhibition series "Contemporary Art of EU Member Countries", which now includes the exposition "Contemporary Art from Latvia. Spotlight: The Collection of the Latvian Contemporary Art Museum". The exhibition in the European Central Bank in Frankfurt am Main will be open June 20 and will bring together the spectators until the end of summer- September 14.

Int eh description of the expected exhibition the European Central Bank writes: "History, cultural heritage and the state of the society still are important accents in Latvian art, enriched by such topicalities as consummation philosophy and mass media seductions as well as the use of new technologies. Nowadays Latvian art is original and very diverse, thus enriching the European cultural space and uncovering the soul and the culture of Latvia.

The works on show are by young Latvian artists as well as by those artists, who, in the years around 1990, were instrumental in redirecting the Latvian art scene, moving away from the doctrine of Socialist Realism and developing new artistic strategies and forms of expression. In many of the artworks, references to Latvia's more recent history, transformations within its society and, in turn, questions of personal and social identity, play an important role. The artistic approaches therefore draw on many different styles, ranging from a contemplative, poetic-metaphorical to an explicit-expressive - and even scathing-ironic - language.

The exhibition consists of works by Imants Lancmanis, Inta Ruka, Egons Spuris, Juris Boiko, Aija Zariņa, Barbara Gaile, Ieva Iltnere and other authors. The exhibition is organized in close cooperation with the Bank of Latvia and "Aizkraukles banka",  the main sponsor of the Contemporary Museum of Arts, that has donated 1 million lats for the purchase of artworks.

The exhibition "Contemporary Art from Latvia. Spotlight : The Collection of the Latvian Contemporary Art Museum" will be opened by Jean Claude Trichet, the president of the European Central Bank and Ilmārs Rimšēvičs, the president of the Bank  of Latvia.
