Press View: Title Doesn’t Matter. Contemporary art exhibition
On 6 October 2017 at 13.00 Latvian National Museum of Art invites media to Press View in the contemporary art exhibition “Title Doesn’t Matter”, which will be on view at the main building of the Latvian National Museum of Art in Riga (Jaņa Rozentāla laukums 1) from 7 October to 19 November 2017, presenting new works of 32 Latvian artists.
The exhibition supported by Boris and Ināra Teterev Foundation is a meaningful stopping point on the way to forthcoming Latvian Museum of Contemporary Art which aims to display contemporary art and visual culture interaction processes in the Baltic Sea region, particularly highlighting the role of Latvian artists in the creation of museum’s content. Latvian Museum of Contemporary Art will be open to visitors in 2021.
The exhibition Title Doesn’t Matter displays accomplishment of 32 Latvian artists, fixed points of their current work process. All authors are interested in what other colleagues are trying to say with art as well as what is happening in such exhibition places as LOW, kim? or 427. As well as what is currently relevant in the global art world. Several artists have notable experience in participating in international art exhibitions, for some of them it is certainly ahead.
