13th Baltic Triennial

At the heart of the 13th Baltic Triennial's (BT13) final chapter taking place at the Kim? contemporary art center in Riga are live components which continue on BT13’s eagerness to foster audience engagement and blur the lines in between the exhibition format and other types of spectacles – whether private or public – such as the club, the reading salon and the cabaret.
 

The series of programmed performances, screenings, music and readings will play on that thin line of ambiguous sentimentalism, to eventually question the way we belong to our own feelings and how we say goodbye.
 

Venue: Kim? contemporary art cdenter (Sporta iela 2)

September 21 - November 18
