Ten new public artworks coming to Latvia's cities

Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art (LLMC) program Together provides for the creation of 10 new public artworks in Rīga and regional cities, LLMC said September 28.

According to the jury's assessment, the following projects will be implemented in Rīga and regional city public spaces:

  • “Zilais miglas vāls” (Anna Līva Traumane, Harijs Vucens; Rīga, Imanta, Anniņmuiža)
  • “Tavs nogurums nav tava vaina” (Miķelis Mūrnieks, Henriks Eliass Zēgners; Rīga, various locations)
  • “Zvēri neaizmirst!” (Aija Baumane-Līce; Rīga, Āgenskalns, Jaunatnes dārzs)
  • “Metamorfozes” (Krista un Reinis Dzudzilo; Rīga, Operas skvērs)
  • “Neredzamie” (Ance Vilnīte; Rīgas centrs)
  • “Apaļā horizonta līnija” (Gints Gabrāns; Daugavpils)
  • “Pieturvieta: Rucka” (“Nomad Architects”; Cēsis, Ruckas parks)
  • “VA (Various Artists)” (Zahars ZE, Nameda Zemīte, Alvis Bergards; Valmiera)
  • “Robotkaķēns Indriķis XIII” (GolfClyderman; Madona)
  • “Vēja paviljons” (Ēriks Božis; Liepāja)

The projects were evaluated by a jury of seven experts.

"It is a delight that the program resulted in a total of 41 projects submitted for evaluation. Applications were very diverse and each had its own strengths. The jury's task of choosing 10 projects was very difficult. I hope that the authors of objects that are not supported in this program will look for other opportunities to execute their ideas through other projects and funding," said Līga Lindenbauma, program leader. 

The program was designed as a support mechanism for visual artists to overcome the crisis caused by COVID-19.

In the middle of November, the “Objects Parade” will take place – unveiling of the objects in which every resident of Latvia will be invited to participate.
