Riga This Week - FREE RIGA CITY GUIDE made by locals since 1992

3 Solo Exhibitions at Noass

Floating art center NOASS starts it's summer season on 17th of May with three solo exhibitions by well known Latvian artists Gvido Kajons ("Life"), Adelīna Darviņa ("American Dream") and solo exhibition of late painter Ramuss.

Photographers Gvido Kajons and Adelīna Darviņa, each representing their own generation grasps flashing moments of daily life,that can easily be lost in daily hurry. G. Kajons in his works captures the writings and signs of the city that are ingenious in theirs simplicity, word play or clarity, thus reviling an image of Riga, that opens up only for slow observers. A. Darviņa during her travel in USA has captured an American dream that already touches feeling of an outskirt of an "paradise" and mindless despair to reach something volatile and unreachable, while fighting time that is slowly erasing hopes, people and things.

Painter Ramuss is known as one of the first nonconformist artists of Latvia. His exhibition indicates, how, in a very short time, an opinion of freedom of artistic expression has changed in Latvia, leaving his paintings - forbidden in 80's, but a bit naïve and romantic from today's point of view.

Each Wednesday night at 21:00 NOASS bar and summer terrace with an picturesque view to panorama of Riga hosts a concert by a local musicians In May and June NOASS will have on its stage such names as "Ezeri", "Reinis Jaunais Trio", Edgars Šubrovskis, "Čipsis un Dullais", "Gatis Ziema un Karaliskā decadence" and "Tesa", thus making art center one of the favorite places for locals and travelers to enjoy music, art and beautiful light nights of the city.
