A public discussion at the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design on Saturday, the 8th of November, at 3 p.m. will feature one of the most extraordinary representatives of the French contemporary art – ORLAN. We offer you to follow the exhibition streamed online on our portal.

The theme for the discussion is the objectives of art: between voyeuristic exhibitionism and revolutionary utopia. The discussion is part of ORLAN’s exhibition in Riga “Le plan du film and Other Scenarios”.

Also participating in the discussion will be art scholar and the curator of the exhibition Inese Baranovska, artist Kristaps Ģelzis, film director Jānis Putniņš, poet, textual group “Orbīta” representative Artūrs Punte, and art critic Ieva Kalniņa. The discussion will be moderated by philosopher Arnis Rītups. You can read Rītups’ interview with ORLAN (in Latvian) in the November issue of the magazine “Rīgas laiks”.

The discussion will be in Latvian and French, with translation. In conclusion, the audience will have a chance to ask ORLAN their questions.
