“The greatest joy occurs when the seemingly impossible happens. Thismiracle appeared at a time when state financing for culture, includingart, is being reduced. While there is the fuss about the Museum ofContemporary Art, the “Lucky Art Museum” has been installed not at anabandoned factory or warehouse, as has commonly been the case in recentyears, but at the state-of-the-art and international-level exhibitionhall that has been built by SIA Pinakotēka.” Inese Matisāne, LV.LV, 19 November 2009“Animations distinctly bring the exhibition to life. Kaspars’ Zariņš’“Pedant,” which was once only on canvas and paper, has been animatedby Roze Stiebra. Ilmārs Blumbergs has offered fascinatingly refineddrawings about how God created humankind, with animation by Māra Liniņa.There are also animations by Ieva and Kristīne Jurjāne. A meditativeoasis is the ‘photography corner,’ with work by Anda Bankovska, GintsBērziņš and Leonīds Tugaļevs.” Elīna Hermansone, Latvijas Avīze, 21 November 2009
“For one more week, until November 28, a special offer is available onthe Rīga cultural landscape – large and expansive facilities of thetype that Latvian artists have been yearning for such a long time, nowfeaturing the annual ‘Autumn 2009’ art exhibition of the Latvian ArtistsUnion. The exhibition features work by artists and art students who workin different media. The exhibition has a polysemantic, provocative and,for our era, pleasantly optimistic title – ‘The Lucky Art Museum’.” Rīga City Council Cultural Department, 24 November 2009“The location of the ‘Lucky Art Museum’ is of key importance. At a timewhen state financing has been reduced for culture and art, the LatvianArtists Association has staged a contemporary exhibition at the newexhibition building that was constructed by SIA Pinakotēka, thus pointingto the need for the visual arts and their importance in the context ofthe development of the state and its society.” Diena.lv, 14 October 2009
