Communications festival as part of Riga Culture Capital 2014. There will be
lots of performative code there- for instance by YoHa (Yokokoji and
Harwood) but also work that literally goes beyond media as we know it, such
as Guerrilla Beehives by Annemie Maes / okno and sacred Andean textiles

logistics chains., by Ines Doujak in collaboration with John Barker. You

Fields - patterns of social, scientific, and technological transformations.
The changing role of art in society is one where it does not just create a
new aesthetics but gets involved in patterns of social, scientific, and
technological transformations. The exhibition Fields presents a lively
landscape of art that challenges existing viewpoints, deconstructs social
issues, and proposes positive visions for the future. Artists in the Fields
exhibition make new combinations of existing fields-as-in-disciplines -
fusing and navigating between the social and the natural, the scientific
and the emotional, the sensible and the actual in imaginative ways.
The exhibition will show approximately 40 artworks by artists from all over
the world, but with a special focus on Central, Eastern and Northern
Europe. The exhibition will be accompanied by a festival Art+Communication
program with public lectures and Renewable Futures conference, as well as a
concert and live performances
