An Exhibition of Contemporary Media Art

This most remarkable art in the summer is yet to be noticed – since the beginning of July, the Latvian National Museum of Art is hosting an international exhibition of contemporary art "Green / without masks".

Twenty Latvian and foreign artists are developing new relationships with nature, studying physical phenomena, calculating how green the forest is over the years, and so on.

The exhibition also asks if and what our control over the Greens is and fetishes its game. Green / Unveiled was unveiled at the RIXC Arts and Sciences Festival; The exhibition is curated by Jens Haughters (France / Germany), Rasa Schmidt and Wright Schmidt (RIXC).

Ellen Leon

A multi-layered, richly written novel

The poet Leon Bridis has created a mystery novel called The Werewolf and the Widow, which, though mostly in the summer and out of the ordinary, will be a great fit for the last month of summer.

Smoothly written, read from different angles and browse and rethink –

it is read both sacred and obscene, as a cosmopolitan story of twentieth-century history and as an individual story of what constitutes a person's life. Throughout the novel, there is a depth and years of knowledge of the author, which in no way makes The Werewolf and the Widow difficult to read.

The JUUK Group

Juuk Group Indulgence Traders Album

One of my most anticipated music events this summer is the dark folk / alternative country band Juuk's Indulgence Merchants, released in early July. The band brings together renowned musicians in Latvia – Edgars Schubrovskis, Oscar Jansons, Snezh Prowlitsa, Dina Skreitule, Raitis Vilumovs and Rinald Maximovs.

According to the musicians themselves, the first album is dedicated to playing music together in the kitchen and living room.

And why not during the quiet moments of loneliness in August, playing games like "I think it would be better to live in Eden or eat out of reality." The album is available on Bandcamp.
