On March 29 at 18:00 Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art invites you for the next reading workshop of LCCA Evening School 'Art Criticism and the Baltics' with semiotician and art critic Indrek Grigor.
Drawing inspiration from the Art Magazine Reading Group operating in New York and London, the participants of the Evening School reading workshop are invited to read the spring issue of Estonian art and visual culture quaterly KUNST.EE. In addition to questions on the relevance, contents and role of such periodicals, we will turn to the strategies of art criticism and their relationship to the local context.
Although the Baltic States are often considered as a single region consisting of small counties, the distances between its main art centres are considerable. Furthermore, the convenient flight connections to Western Europe mean that a special interest and will is necessary, in order to choose to follow the art processes in Tallinn, Tartu, Vilnius or Kaunas. Additional difficulties arise from the limited mutual exchange of exhibitions, information and cultural references.
