Summer school of Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art will start tomorrow

 

The Second LCCA Summer School This Is Tomorrow! will start tomorrow with the panel discussion This Is Tomorrow!  For six days, young and emerging artists, art critics, curators and cultural project managers from the Baltic States will have the opportunity to take part in a multi-faceted educational programme, consisting of discussions, lectures and creative workshops.

“But yesterday’s tomorrow is not today,” wrote British art critic and curator Lawrence Alloway in 1956, working on the exhibition This Is Tomorrow! in London, pointing to the necessity for closer symbiosis between art, architecture, design and the processes of everyday culture. Accordingly, the basis of the LCCA Summer School is formed by the desire to form closer inter-disciplinary collaboration between members of various fields of culture and the arts, to explore the today through the current experience and perspectives of culture theory, strategies of contemporary artists, conceptualisation of the perception of time through the ‘frames’ of memory and the archive, the intersections of postcolonial and postsocialist experience, interpretations of reality and science fiction, etc.

Lectures and discussions are public and free for all who are interested. The programme of the summer school can be found here
