Valley of the Strange :: Parallel exhibition

Ana Zibelnik

From 15 August – 28 September the ISSP Gallery is hosting "Valley of the Strange", a Parallel Photo Platform exhibition in Riga highlighting six emerging European artists - José Alves, Cihad Caner, Federico Ciamei, Ela Polkowska, Rocco Venezia, Ana Zibelnik. The exhibition considers the role of the image in navigating past and present, while questioning how photography and film can defamiliarize our everyday encounters with the world. Opening - August 14 at 6PM.

No 15. augusta līdz 28. septembrim ISSP Galerijā notiks izstāde "Savādā ieleja". Parallel fotogrāfijas platformas izstāde Rīgā apvieno sešus jaunus Eiropas māksliniekus, kuri caur fotogrāfiju pēta laika robežas un to, kā ikdienišķais kļūst īpatnējs. Izstāde aplūko attēlu lomu pagātnes un tagadnes izpratnē, vienlaikus izceļot to, kā fotogrāfija un video ļauj ikdienu saredzēt citā, nepazīstamā gaismā. Atklāšana - 14. augustā plkst. 18.00.
