On February 23, at 18:00 In the experimental art space of the Art Academy of Latvia, “Pilot” will open the exhibition “Propaganda effect: The poster in Latvia as a forgotten phenomenon”.
The poster's strength lies in its ability to quickly, laconically and directly give an easy-to-understand, rhetoric and uncontroversial message to the viewer. By identifying the collection of posters in the Latvian Academy of Art, the exhibition authors – LAA Art History and Theory Senior year students Zanda Kagaine, Monta Gintere, Laima Dūda and Inese Gātere – explore the poster as an instrument of propaganda of Soviet power in the territory of Latvia during the Soviet occupation. The exhibition reflects both the various issues related to politics, society and ideology, which are affected by propaganda, as well as attempts to identify the public's reaction to it, by studying the historical records of the museum archives.
From March 9 to April 6 the great hall of the Art Academy of Latvia (LMA) will be hosting "Blossoms and Blood" – an exhibition by Paweł Nowak, professor at Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. It will include work from the series “Sensation Morphology” and “Blossoms”– converging together they delve into questions of life and death. Everyone is welcome to the opening on March 8 at 17.00.
