Contemporary art festival Survival Kit 6
Survival Kit is an international festival of contemporary art organized by the center of Contemporary Art since 2009. Its events bring artists to Latvia, who are urged to express themselves on publicly significant themes and to imagine and offer their scenarios of survival. The highlight of the festival is a show of contemporary art, in 2013 and 2014 also to feature a theoretical seminar and a wider program of festival events.
The exhibition will consist of three parts – the historic review of the city’s architectonic, social and political utopias, begining with the works of French architect Claude Nicolas Ledoux, the British group “Archigram”, as well as Latvian kinetic artists and other projects. The contemporary part of the expo will contain works of Latvian and foreign artists, who will discuss the modern changes in the city. The biggest part of the expo will be art pieces in the urban environment.
Participants: Exyzt (France), Cardbordia (Russia), Apolonija Šušteršič (Slovenia/the Netherlands) and others. The festival also foresees satellite programmes in the creative quarters of Riga.
