Akureyri Art Museum: TALK TO ME!

21. July 2019 kl. 10:00 - 21. July 2019 kl. 17:00

Latvian contemporary art from the Latvian National Museum of Art
Talk to Me!
Galleries 01 - 05
June 1 - September 22 2019

On August 23ʳᵈ 1989, Latvians joined their neighboring citizens in protest against the imperial rule of the Soviet Union, by forming a human chain connecting the three Baltic capitals: Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn. This symbolic assembly of silent bodies became known as The Chain of Freedom. Two years later, Iceland became the first country in the world to recognize the independence of Latvia.

Insisting on the fact that freedom is essentially based on relations, Latvian artists are questioning their identity and searching for a livable future. The exhibition Talaðu við mig! / Runā ar mani! / Talk to Me! implies that the contemporary art museum can act as a stage where dialectics of intimacy and political memory can be reinforced in order to elucidate the enigmas of our futures.

Participants: Andris Breže, Arturs Bērziņš, Dace Džeriņa, Ģirts Muižnieks, Ieva Epnere, Inga Meldere, Katrīna Neiburga, Kaspars Podnieks, Krišs Salmanis, Kristaps Epners, Kristaps Ģelzis, Leonards Laganovskis, Maija Kurševa, Mārtiņš Ratniks, Raitis Šmits, Rasa Šmite, Vija Celmiņš, Vilnis Zābers and Zenta Dzividzinska.

Curators: Astrida Rogule and Æsa Sigurjónsdóttir.

The exhibition is a part of Latvia´s Centenary celebration.
