Two parallel expositions or two cases of looking at the transformation of the concept of “abroad”, the changing travel routes of Latvian artists, as well as separate culture-political strategies, that have directly influenced the creation of works of art. 

Abroad. Case 1” in the Main Gallery traces the most popular travel routes and sources of inspiration of Latvian artists from early 20th century to the 1980s.

“Abroad. Case 2” in the Upper Gallery presents works of Latvian art photographers, that have been created in the same geographical area as the artists of the earlier periods.

The works of classics of Latvian photography Egons Spuris and Jānis Kreicbergs will trace the specific role of reportage as source of visual information in the Soviet period. The photo series of new Latvian artists Ieva Epnere, Ivars Grāvlejs, Reinis Hofmanis and Alnis Stakle – socially critical and anthropological investigations of landscape and environment – will outline the various approaches of contemporary art.

“Abroad. Case 2” is a Riga Photo Month 2014 partner event.
