The theme of the 2019 International graphics festival PRINTMAKING IN is OUTSKIRTS OF INTIMACY.
The festival’s theme is inspired by the verse ”Love has no outskirts” by the Latvian poet Jānis Rokpelnis. The aim of the festival is to find the centre of ourselves, our sensitivity and our intimacy, to remind us that the human being is the centre of the world. The festival will challenge the audience to encounter both spiritual and bodily experience.
In the last three years, the festival’s core has been in Riga’s city center. This year we are focusing on cultural centers in the Āgenskalns neighbourhood on the other side of the Daugava River.
During the festival Riga will become a centre of international graphic art. Exhibitions, performances and art events with the participation of artists from the United States and a number of Europe countries will be held at a range of venues.
