Artūrs Bērziņš. Solo exhibition "Great loneliness"

02.02.2018 - 10.03.2018.

Arthur Berzinsh’s exhibition "Great Loneliness".


The exhibition "Great Loneliness" reflects on various types of populism, that manipulates with human ego through inborn or socially determined characteristics. These substitudes of values buys us up wholesale. And the price each of us have to pay is a great loneliness of a western human.

Artist’s works oscillates between seeking for seriousness in matter and game approach in form – ambivalence between idealism and irony, that is characteristic of metamodernism. As usual in Arthur Berzinsh’s works, evident message of images most probably is deceptive and contains double bottom with an opposite meaning - just like everything that surrounds us in the age of informative war, where a man is a tool for another man.

The exhibition will include paintings, graphics, installations and even eatable objects, that shows parallels with all the information we consume. High culture is being superseded by easy-weighted surrogates. Primitive information we choose changes our mind in the same way as fast food changes our body.

Riga Photography Biennial 2018 exhibition "Today I’m a Mermaid. Tomorrow I’ll Be a Unicorn"

07.04.2018 - 06.05.2018

Gallery MuseumLV, Andreja Pumpura iela 2


Kristians Brekte (LV), Ivars Grāvlejs (LV/CZ), Margrieta Griestiņa (LV), Reinis Hofmanis (LV), Alina Kleytman (UA), Natalia Ibáñez Lario (ES), Floris Schönfeld (US/NL), Mike Diva (US), Grimes (CA), Harmony Korine (US), Die Antwoord (ZA)

Riga Photography Biennial 2018 exhibition’s Today I’m a Mermaid. Tomorrow I’ll Be a Unicorn title is derived from a popular slogan mass printed on infant sleepsuits, t-shirts and other items of clothing to promote sales in stores and online. The ambiguous message can be interpreted either as a critical socio-political commentary on contemporary society, its shifting values and peculiar heroes, or as an invitation to let one’s imagination roam free, without defining or limiting oneself within set frameworks of identity and thinking.

The exhibition draws attention to the influence of fantasy, fiction and the absurd on various social groups within 21st century reality, where particular significance is given to social identities such as national, ethnic or cultural belonging. There is a particular focus on “magical identity”, which continues to exist as a form of mythological thinking within the consciousness and habits of rationally-based Western civilisation. In the child’s world, magical identity co-exists with other social identities depending on the desired projections, effortlessly transforming the child into a princess, an astronaut, an elf, a soldier, a mermaid, or a rainbow coloured pony/unicorn. As the individual grows up, this imagined identity may become a way to provoke society outside the group with which the individual identifies, or to express protest and criticism in the context of various youth subcultures. Often such magical identities are created with help from literature, cinema, art, history and pop culture, which in and of themselves are vivid mirrors of society’s values and fantasies. A significant role is also played by globalisation and the growth of information media, which has resulted in hybrids of Western and Eastern pop culture as well as ironically exotic exhibitions in postcolonial countries.

Expanding on the visual potential of the subject, representatives of pop culture are also present at the exhibition. Their projects are characterised by powefull cooperation between different artists, experimental formats, and the ability to transform contemporary mass culture products into both colourful visions and social activism.

Two events accompanying the exhibition within the framework of RPB 2018 educational programme: "RE-CREATING" - master class with Floris Schönfeld for young artists and photographers, taking place on April 7th at Gallery "MuseumLV" and Latvian Museum of Photography and "MAGICAL HEROES" - workshop with photographer Reinis Hofmanis for children, families and other interested parties taking place on April 29th, at Gallery "MuseumLV" and Latvian National Museum of Art. Participation with prior application.


Exhibition will be opened with performance – tamed fashion show Kebab by Ivars Grāvlejs and Margrieta Griestiņa.

The Riga Photography Biennial is an international contemporary art event, focusing on the analysis of visual culture and artistic representation. The term ‘photography’ in the title of the biennial is used as an all-embracing concept encompassing a mixed range of artistic image-making practices that have continued to transform the lexicon of contemporary art in the 21 st century. The biennial covers issues ranging from cultural theory to current socio-political processes in the Baltics and the wider European region. Riga Photography Biennial attempts to record changes taking place all over the world and invites us to collectively interpret them whilst translating the complicated and oversaturated contemporary visual language into meaningful relationships between our daily reality, the camera lens, historic material, contemporary art, technologies and the future.

Andrejs Nadeždinskis. Solo exhibition "Golden spider web". 30.01.2018 - 10.03.2018.

30.01.2018 - 10.03.2018.

Andrejs Nadeždinskis "Golden Spider Web"
From 01.02. in Grata JJ cultural center in the second floor of art gallery MuseumLV the exhibition of Andrejs Nadeždinskis “Golden Spider Web” can be seen.
Andrejs Nadeždinskis’ works combine the art of jewellery, sculpture and graphics. The material of artworks is worth of admiration - spider webs and gold.
Ten years ago, the spider webs arouse artistic interest for Andrejs Nadeždinskis. Science still fails to explain how and why the spider builds the web. Each web is unique, its design depends on the weather, the season, the age of the spider and the mood. If we compare the proportion of dew drop mass to the thickness of the spider web, the network would be able to stop the plane on another scale.
For several years, Nadeždinskis went on expeditions in Latvian nature, explored spider webs, revealing the way how they can be moved and conserved, preserving the natural drawing of the web. This process is very complicated and expensive.
Finally, spider webs are gilded, and the artist creates decorative compositions from them, becoming a co-author of the natural phenomenon. Gold helps to highlight the graphics of spider’s web in natural light.
Andrejs Nadeždinskis’ compositions are unique - the applied technology is original, discovered by him. The golden spider web in Nadeždinskis’ performance could become an extraordinary and valuable gift to a human who sees the world without prejudice.

Group exhibition "The Inscribed Art". 28.12.2017 - 27.01.2018.

28.12.2017 - 27.01.2018.

The Inscribed Art
A group exhibition


The last chance to visit the exhibition and purchase New year’s gifts only on December 29th, 2017.

From December 29 to January 1, exhibition “The Inscribed Art” will be available for viewing in the gallery MuseumLV.
MuseumLV celebrates its first anniversary with this project and has invited every artist, both that have collaborated with the gallery during this year by having exhibitions, participating in online painting sessions as well as those who are set to work with the gallery in the future.

The artworks have been created in various different techniques, yet they are all related in their use of orthographic symbols, that is, letters. This exhibition is a collective message from the culture centre team and the artists to the world on the New Years Eve.
Some older artworks that pertain to this theme will be showcased, however most of the works have been created specifically for this project. Some artists are loyal to themselves and keep working in a style and format they are identified with, for example: Dita Lūse, Ilze Jaunberga, Agate Apkalne, Ilze Smildziņa, Rihards Delvers, Roberts Diners, Lilija Dinere, Līga Ķempe, Artūrs Bērziņš, Dmitrijs Lavrentjevs, Līga Jukša, Kalvis Zālītis…Others, such as Matiass Jansons, Jūlija Jeresjko, Inga Jurova, Anda Poikāne, Laura Feldberga, Laime Bikše … have dared to experiment and their works will be a surprise. Modris Brasliņš in his drawing cycle tackles the problems that are upsetting to society. Edgars Ameriks and Miķelis Baštiks have created a font, drawing their inspiration from the historical posters of Ansis Cīrulis, and materialized it via peat. Artists from Estonia, Lithuania and Belarus are also participating in the exhibition.

The exhibition on the second floor of the gallery by the students of Art Academy of Latvia is an alternative interpretation of the theme of “The Inscribed Art”. Painter Kristīne Kutepova has assumed the role of the curator and has organized the student exhibition.
