Exhibition - Unexpected Encounters

This exhibition organized by the Latvian Center of Contemporary will focus on the impact the sci-fi genre has on the art territory, combining historical research and works from contemporary artists. The exhibition will focus on the Baltic and Nordic region, as well as former socialist states.

Nowadays, just like in various points in history, there is a growing interest in science fiction that offers both progressive utopias and provokes frightening dystopias. Alongside science and technology, science fiction's utopias also address issues such as class, race, gender inequality, or impending ecological catastrophes.
