Museum night in NOASS


Lights of NOASS will be brighter on the Museum night – 20th of May from 19:00 – 01:00.

Three personal exhibitions hosted by NOASS: Gvido Kajons’ Life, Adelīna Darviņa’s American Dream and painter Ramuss’ search for an ideal world will be open up to one o’clock in night, but the musical flow of the evening will be guided by DJ Martin Alex.

About exhibitions:

Although each of them represents their own generation of photographers, both Gvido Kajons and Adalīna Darviņa have immortalized fleeting moments of daily life, which those in a hurry would most likely fail to notice. Such is the paradoxical nature of the distinctive phrases and signs of the city captured by Kajons that his saliently witty images verge on the iconic; so much so that they leave one gasping for breath in the face of their worldliness.

In contrast, Adelīna Darviņa documents “the American Dream”, which explicitly and acerbically oscillates on the brink between the atmosphere on the approach to the “Gates of Paradise” and mindless desperation, wrought by the pursuit of distant and unattainable visions, while time implacably bleeds dreams, items and people of their colour.

In turn, painter Ramuss’ exhibition in Noass’ “old” gallery is a retrospective look at the artist’s oeuvre from the late 1980s through to its final works, which he painted in the mid-2000s. As a non-conformist artist, Ramus depicted his spiritual quests in his paintings, enabling us to trace his artistic path from his use of serene and characteristically Latvian tones through to an explosion of colour, and his self-expression via affirmative and energizing symbols in his late works. At the same time, Ramuss’ exhibition offers us a reminder of how quickly the views have changed that, once upon a time, even in a seemingly neutral medium like painting, set the boundaries for artistic expression.

Exhibitions are supported by State Cultural Capital foundation and Riga City Coucil.
