‘Restart’, the major exhibition of the Riga Photography Biennial 2016, will open to the public at Riga Art Space on 22 April, featuring work by eighteen internationally recognised artists searching for a connection between the past and the present.
The main idea behind this exhibition can be described as a desire to deepen our understanding of the world we currently live in by highlighting its dialectic relationship with the past and the future. We can all but fantasize whether the future influences today, whilst attempting to guess what will be the shape of our future memories?
Until 12 June Rigans and many guests to the capital will be able to appreciate the work of following artists at the Riga Art Space: Amalia Ulman (USA), Agniezska Polska (PL/NL) and Witek Orski (PL), Eva Stenram (SE/UK), Natasha Caruana (UK), Isabelle Wenzel (DE), Alexander Ugay (KZ), Camille Laurelli (FR/EE), Zane Mellupe (LV/CN), Meggy Rustamova (GE/BE), Danila Tkachenko (RU), Jana Romanova (RU), Laura Prikule (LV), Karoliina Paappa (FI), Katinka Goldberg (SE/NO), Paul Herbst (LT/DE), Arnas Anskaitis (LT) and Uldis Briedis (LV).
