Luжеe Rukane, curator of the art event, warns: “If you are told at the entrance to the Academy of Sciences that there is no such exhibition hall on the second floor – do not believe it! In such situations, find a python, wake it up and then slide.”
The exhibition will be open in November and December 2020 in the exhibition hall on the 2nd floor of the Latvian Academy of Sciences every working day from 08:30 to 17:00, while the opening ceremony of the conference will be held on November 10 from 17 : 00 – 19:30.
The group’s exhibition is organized by the “Art Needs Space” Foundation. Interpretation as a communication tool for the visual arts has always been the focus of the Space Arts Foundation. Through this interpretive approach, the curator aims to offer an art event that encourages its visitors to think about the authenticity or absurdity of the information offered, the scientific methods and their meanings, the existence of objective truth, false news and the difference between reliable or unreliable sources of information. For this reason, the Latvian Academy of Sciences has been conceptually selected as the venue for the exhibition.
