Pairs

From 25 April to 1 June 2019, an exhibition from the Zuzāns Collection, Pairs, will be on view in the Main Gallery of the Mūkusala Art Salon.

Pairs play on the different meanings of the exhibition's Latvian title Pāri. It presents 10 pairs of artists, whose works form conceptual, narrative, formal or thematic parallels. The exposition also represents reaching across – the other meaning of the Latvian word – the familiar art-historical chronology, building bridges between artists from different periods and generations. It brings together different artists and puts them into a dialogue, revealing unexpected aspects in the interpretation of their works.

Art has the capacity to ask awkward questions, draw attention to problems swept under the carpet, engage in socio-critical irony. It may respond to currents in popular culture, deal with the artist's personal matters, represent a play of forms or simply the courage to be happy. These and, likely, other meanings can be found in the artist duos in the exhibition Pairs. Exhibiting the same works again will reveal something different.

The following artist pairs are presented in the exhibition: Kārlis Vītols and Andris Grinbergs, Jessen Factory and Frančeska Kirke, Rūdolfs Pērle and Barbara Gaile, Boriss Bērziņš and Paulis Liepa, Ģirts Muižnieks and Daiga Krūze, Jānis Kalmīte and Andris Breže, Niklāvs Strunke and Līga Purmale, Izabella Krolle and Rasa Jansone, Sigita Daugule and Egons Spuris, Imants Tillers and Kristaps Ģelzis.

The exhibition is curated by Līga Lindenbauma. Exhibition design by Asnate Bočkis, graphic design by Madara Krieviņa.

Free entry.
