Portable Landscapes is an international art project with exhibitions in Riga, Paris, New York, Gotland and Berlin, which traces the manifestations of Latvian art in exile and emigration from the beginning of the 20th century until today. The project examines the stories of exiled and émigré Latvian artists, locating them within the broader context of 20th-century art history, and wider processes of migration and globalization.
As part of the Portable Landscapes project BAC will host artists, curators and writers that will trace the stories of émigré Latvian artists in Sweden. The collaboration is part of BAC’s AIR_BALTIC residency 2017, with support from Culture Point North. The resulting projects will be presented at the National Museum of Art in Riga in April 2018.
