Artists from all over the world to participate in the exhibition “Fields”
The changing role of art in society is one where it does not just create new aesthetics but gets involved in patterns of social, scientific, and technological transformations. The exhibition “Fields” presents a lively landscape of art that challenges existing viewpoints, deconstructs social reality, and offers positive visions for the future. Artists who participate in the “Fields” exhibition use their imagination to make new combinations of the existing fields and create new interdisciplines, fusing and navigating between the social and the natural, the scientific and the emotional, the sensible and the realistic.
The exhibition will present almost forty very different artworks by artists from all over the world, but with a special focus on Central, Eastern and Northern Europe. The exhibition will be accompanied by the 16th International Festival for New Media Culture “Art+Communication 2014” programme with public lectures, an international conference, live performances and concerts.
Raitis Šmits, Rasa Šmite (Latvia) and Armin Medosch (Austria) are the curators of the exhibition, whereas the RIXC Centre for New Media Culture is the exhibition’s producer. Artists participating in the exhibition: Oliver Ressler, Shu Lea Cheang, Lisa Jevbratt, Superflex, Gints Gabrāns, Marko Peljhan, Cecile Babiole, HeHe, Voldemārs Johansons, Erich Berger, Mārtiņš Ratniks, Hayley Newman, Annemie Maes, YoHa, Martin Howse, Franz Xaver and many more.
