Art Future/Future Signs is an exhibition platform representing 17 Nordic/Baltic KUNO fine art academies. The aim of the platform is to propose, show, exchange and interact with the vision of the future. The participating artists are posing the question of what the future of art might be; what the position of the artist is in the community today; and how the rapid development of technologies are influencing the artistic processes in parallel with influencing and changing human behavior and reactions to the surroundings. The role of the artist in society is the main focus at the exhibition. The divisions of labor in the art field today are directly influencing the tendencies of art in future. The Future is never a secure place to step into!
Art Future/Future Signs is both presenting works in a traditional gallery space (installations, video, texts, objects) and live action and performance works, which are scheduled during the opening of the exhibition. The mini biennial Art Future/ Future Signs is part of the Centenary project of Art Academy of Latvia – Future Signs.
