Cultural Center Grata Award for Visual Arts. Exhibition "The Mystery. Ritual art "

Cultural Center Grata Award for Visual Arts. Exhibition "The Mystery. Ritual art "

With this project, the cultural center Grata JJ begins the tradition of creating its prize in visual arts, encouraging artists to participate in the annual summer exhibition, in which a wide spectrum of art is represented, a surprise for viewers, the opportunity to see the works of beloved artists in one go. Translated from Latin, "grata" means "desirable", "grateful".


Sometimes the process of creating an artwork overlaps with the nature of the ritual.

At other times, ritual and art are one and the same.

There may not be anything to do with the creation of artwork with ritual activities, because it is a laborious, impetuous work, but the result is that the artist opens his portal to an inaccessible world to date.

The time of the opening of the exhibition - before the Ligo festival, which we can consider our Latvian mystery - how do we look at this ancient heritage, based on the artist's experience?
