The HAPPY ART MUSEUM production group announces an international contemporary art fair exhibition Art Riga that will take place on November 24-30 2015 in Riga. The new tradition set up this year with Riga being the 2014 European Capital opens opportunities for a longterm future development.
The Art Riga international art fair is meant to be an annual meeting place for art professionals - art galleries, institutions, printing houses, experts, cultural media representatives, collectors as well as art lovers from all over the world. Professional Latvian art galleries are invited to take part in the fair. International art galleries and institutions will participate on a competitive base. This year galleries from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, Indonesia, Georgia, Estonia, Mexico and Latvia have confirmed their participation.
The Fair's main purposes are:
- Receive international visibility and become an important annual meeting place for art professionals from Northern, Eastern and Western Europe.
−Enhance the prestige of Latvia's artists and art galleries;
−Receive a deeper understanding of the Baltic region's current events, find out more about the world's art trends and have a look at oneself in the European and world art market context.
−Practice an exhibition exchange with international art galleries, get to know colleagues who organize art events all around the world.
It is a collective exhibition of art galleries and art institutions where each participant makes his exposition on a separate stand. This format popular in the rest of the world will be applied to the Latvian context for the first time. The Art Riga festival welcomes everyone to have an art experience as well as have a look at the exhibition's favorite pieces from a commercial viewpoint.
Every year the best world art galleries come together, and fight for the love of the audience.
Gallery owners, artists and art experts exchange ideas, make friends and discuss exchange exhibitions and activities.
The fair's meeting place is the Latvian Railroad History Museum. It was chosen for its cultural and historical background, its capacity and easy-to-find location. Each participant will have a separate block with a stand, all blocks are planned to be of an equal size, but that can be changed if needed.
Besides the traditional and interdisciplinary art expositions broad analytical discussions will take place during the fair. The conference program includes talks by SIMON HEWITT (Oxford) ”Investigation in originals”. ALEXEY ROMANOV ALEXANDER RAPPAPORT, IGOR VATOLIN “ART&ENIGMA”, etc.
The whole week of the fair foreign authors, gallery owners and art experts will be presenting the works. The first day is traditionally scheduled for art professionals and VIP guests.
