European best destinations 2024 - Riga

Exhibition "Straight, No Chaser"

Artworks, featured in the exhibition, come from the Zuzāns Collection, international galleries and Latvian museums, and range from 16th century icons to contemporary art. Among these are old Latvian masters such as Vilhelms Purvītis, Janis Rozentāls, and Johann Walter-Kurau. The exhibition "Straight, No Chaser" is named after a 1967 piece by the famous American Jazz musician Thelonious Monk.

Following an invitation from the Zuzeum Art Centre, the Parisian research group "La Méditerranée" has composed an exhibition and created two architectures, "Tower" and "Zeppelin", that are rooted in the history of Riga and echo the singular nature of the Zuzāns collection.

In addition, the exhibition "Grotto Far From the Sea" brings together several works from different periods by the text-group Orbita – or, more precisely, new versions of previously realised ideas and objects created specially for this exhibition. The impulse behind the creation of these works was the artists’ interest in the nature of text and forms of its existence.
