The series of events created by the team of curators – Kaspars Groševs, Virgīnija Januškevičiūtė and Sīma Preimans – aims to unite communities and provide an alternative platform for activating creative representatives in times of isolation and uncertainty. Representatives of visual arts, musicians, performance artists and writers from the Baltics, based in the region or otherwise associated with the Baltic States, are invited to propose ideas in a variety of formats, both physical and virtual. The selected proposals will be compiled on a single web platform. It’s an opportunity to publish a text or visual essay, premiere a movie or soundtrack, organize an online streaming session, or otherwise share your work online or in person.
According to Kaspars Groševs, the aim of this project is to reveal kaleidoscopic dreaminess in parallel thought flows, expression and understanding, inviting various cultural agents to share their creative expressions and gestures in any form – both physical and online. The newly created platform is intended as a sequential space for the exchange of fun research, footprints, undercurrents and breaking. Resonating with the ephemeral, often unexplored intimate act that delights oneself and others, the fragmentary history, the project invites creative representatives to engage in the dissemination of personal discoveries and artistic pursuits.
The title of the exhibition refers to the many turning points in the history of exhibition design, emphasizing the importance of this time and the different ways we can participate. The aim of the curatorial team is to emphasize that a physical public exhibition has not always and not always been the main format of artistic experience.
The implementation of each selected artist’s project will be supported by one of the three partner institutions. In addition to the remuneration and production budget, this support may also include facilities and technical equipment.
Applications must be submitted in English and sent in a single, e-mail, Word or pdf document to [email protected] (topic: History of Joy) and should include the project application (visual sketches, budget estimate, location ideas (if applicable) and contact information), CV (maximum two pages) and a summary of previous projects – portfolio (three-page request, including images and links).
The deadline for project submission is March 15. Applications will be evaluated by the project curators, who will make a decision based on the suitability of the application for the conceptual setting of the project and the ability of the organizers to ensure its implementation.
It is planned to contact the authors of the selected projects in April. The series of online presentations is scheduled to open in May this year.
The project is supported by the Baltic Culture Foundation.
