Elga Grinvalde. Solo exhibition "Verticals".

Elga Grinvalde | Dedication to Handel | 2020 | oil on canvas | 100 x 125 cm

22.12.2021. – 5.02.2022.

The sacred days of the year are approaching, when we want to maintain inner peace and light for the whole next year. Now more than ever we need this connection with one another and faith. Our search for happiness is very individual - for some it is a quiet moment in church, but for others it is a meditative state through immersion in colors, forms and light.

In the works of Elga Grinvalde, presented at the personal exhibition "Verticals" at the gallery MuseumLV, there are direct references to the Roman basilica, in which beauty of the Divine leads to a quiet, unchanging harmony. The artist’s painting is characterized by interaction of light and color, which creates special vibrations and draws the viewer into a meditative state. With its wide dimensions, simplified shapes and masterful nuances, the potential of color is unleashed, while the shimmering layers of paint bring a sense of depth. A similar meditative aura manifests itself in the cold beauty of winter.

Artist Elga Grinvalde explains the idea of the exhibition: ’Look from point to point, higher and higher until the boundary disappears. Verticals, cathedrals, mountains and sky, giant forests, trees, church, skyscrapers, stars and distance unknown. Barcode, blanket patterns, national skirts, lines and patterns, coatings with endless thoughts. Verticals - climbing a mountain, persistent work, falling and resurrection, delving into the essence of things, new revelations, walking into the depths of infinite vertical. We look for our own vertical. The exhibition is based on a game of color and light interaction independently from an artist. On a basis of gold. Gold as a background since the Byzantine Middle Ages. The play of divine beauty in the basilica with sun and candle lights and the sounds of vibrating coral transfers people's subconscious to the vertical lines. Looking at the paintings in the exhibition, each visitor will see their vision. Person is what he sees, hears, feels. Paintings with an approximate mood can bring each person individually into the harmony of silence that is their own vertical.’

Elga Grinvalde (1966), born in Valka. Since 1996, she has regularly organized solo exhibitions both in Latvia and abroad. She had participated in exhibitions at the Mark Rothko Art Center, the Arsenals Exhibition Hall ‘Arsenals’, the Gallery MuseumLV, the Baltic Biennale in St. Petersburg, L'Eternita nell Arte in Rome, and elsewhere.

The team of Gallery MuseumLV wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe, happy New Year 2022.

Music of the exhibition: Toms Auniņš.

Christmas exhibition - sale

Anna Kustikova | Christmas pudding | aquarelle | 2021 | 40,5 х 22 см

22.12.2021. – 29.01.2022

It's Christmas time. This year, we especially want to protect the light, the warmth of the heart and share it with others, so that together we can maintain spiritual strength and joy of life. Already last year, the gallery MuseumLV enriched the range of festive events with the exhibition sale “100 works - 100 authors”, which delighted many visitors and allowed artists to share their visual stories. That is why this year we want to help everyone interested to meet different artists by enjoying their works of art and maybe buy a unique gift for himself or some close person.

We intend our Christmas exhibition as a snowstorm of colors, which you can indulge and capture the feelings of different seasons through paintings, travel the world of fantasy and see the beauty of the most ordinary everyday things through the eyes of the artist.

People able to find the joy of holidays through hearing, seeing, feeling something reminiscent of the feast of childhood - as they were expected and finally brought many moments of happiness. The joy of the holiday comes with remembering experiences with dear people. The joy of the holiday is also a new impressions we get when we let the whirlwind of the holiday season go, when we go to look for ideas on how to surprise our loved ones or enjoy the beauty that surrounds us just like glittering holiday decorations. We hope that one of the shining sources of joy will be the Christmas exhibition of the gallery MuseumLV.

Such artists as Ilze Muceniece Ademaite, Andris Biezbārdis, Andrejs Bovtovičs, Maija Brašmane, Dagnija Čerevičnika, Agnija Ģērmane, Matiass Jansons, Inga Jurova, Laine Kainaize, Ieva Kalēja, Līga Kalniņa, Linda Kozule, Anna Kustikova, Ilze Laizāne, Ieva Liepiņa, Dita Lūse, Irēna Lūse, Vadims Markevičs, Silvija Meškone, Eduards Mihelovičs, Jana Mikosa, Aleksejs Naumovs, Nukzars Paksadze, Karine Paronyanc, Aleksandrs Petrovs, Rita Pranča, Rakhmets Radžepovs, Olga Smirnova, Rita Uļjanova, Evija Veidemane, Nele Zirnīte, Dina Zoldnere, Jurijs Zujevs, Vivita Zuzule and many other artists will participate in the exhibition with their works of art.

Eduard Zentsik, Yury Khorev, Tauno Kangro. Exhibition "MŪZA/MUSE/МУЗА"

02.10. - 11.12.2021

Estonian artists will reveal the secrets of their muses - Tauno Kangro, Yury Khorev and Eduard Zentsik invite to the joint exhibition at the Art Gallery MuseumLV, Andreja Pumpura iela 2, LV – 1010, Riga


From October 2 there will be exhibition MŪZA/MUSE/МУЗА — a unique cooperation of three famous Estonian artists Zentsik, Khorev and Kangro.

The MuseumLV Gallery is an ideal place for the confessions of artists, in whose works great attention is paid to the sources of their inspiration. The joint art project is already familiar to fans in Estonia, but it will be seen for the first time in Latvia. As always, it will be updated, and the audience will see the most recent art works.

The exhibition MŪZA/MUSE/МУЗА will provide contemporary art lovers with a wide range of artistic pursuits. Eduard Zentsik, who is familiar with his ease of existence in different styles and art directions, will offer to plunge into a series of magical portraits. Zentsik does not hide the habitat of his muses - the magical land of Fairies and the dark nooks of mythical worlds. The works of different series evoke memories of classical modernity and the period of Pre-Raphaelites. Yury Khorev, in turn, will tell the audience about the impressions and emotions of communicating with his muses. Airy forms, pure colors, sometimes the schematic nature of a large author's gesture allows you to feel the full strength of the character of the heroines. The women of Khorev are not reduced to their physicality and beauty of lines - each of them has a personality, history and judgment about the world. The living legend Tauno Kangro, developing the theme of lightness and heavenly origin of muses, will add volume with his works. The skill of the sculptor, giving flexibility and weightlessness to metal, for all its physical weight, can be compared with divine inspiration. The muses caught in the artwork of Kangro seem to be frozen for the audience, so that they can see the most graceful details that give them inspiration.

At the same time, the current feminist agenda of our time can reproach the authors of the exhibition with its indignation at such attention to the female body. However, it is worth looking at the presented works, as any accusations will become untenable. In the works of artists there is no place for objectification of female physiology and predatory voluptuousness.

MŪZA/MUSE/МУЗА — it is an ode to admiration for their muses and recognition of their complicity in the art process.
MŪZA/MUSE/МУЗА — it is a trio of dissimilar, but balanced art soloists, whose "ensemble" was able to achieve absolute harmony.

The project of a unique cooperation of the sculptor Tauno Kangro and painters Yuri Khorev and Eduard Zentsik MŪZA/MUSE/МУЗА will be available to the viewer until December 11.

Art critic: Mikhail Komashko

Eduard Zentsik (born 1975) is a contemporary Estonian genre-busting artist. The main E.Zentsik’s art object is “playing the artist”. The fancied artist deconstructs the philistine notion of commitment to style: the selection of forms varies from the traditional pictorial art to the actionism. The Artist “zentsikizes” each style and trend. Eduard Zentsik presents to the viewer his own version of oscillation in the post-modernism era. With ease, he juggles with methods, habituates trends and adopts styles. Destruction, mixing and aligning of each guise – all this makes the Artist trans-universal.
The brand of “Unknown Artist Zentsik” is well known in his native region of the North-Eastern Estonia. The participant of a whole number of presentations, the facilitator of young artist exhibitions, populariser of the contemporary art process, a guest at any important event, a photographer, sculptor, an installation artist— all these make the Artist an easily recognizable figure in the local environment. Painter, photographer, graphic artist, designer, author of installations, performances and musical improvisations. Organizer of youth exhibitions and projects. For over years of creativity had more than a hundred personal exhibitions and took part in numerous joint projects. Participant and winner of international Photographic and Art competitions. Numerous works are in private collections around the world. Member of the Estonian Association of Artists.
 E.Zentsik


Yury Khorev (born 1956) is one of successfully working contemporary artists in Estonia, who has found his own place in the world of art in recent years. He has been residing in Estonia since 1957. Kohtla-Jarve School of Art and Moscow University of Arts (1985) have formed aesthetic views of Yury Khorev.
His works have been shown on annual exhibitions in Johvi branch of Estonian State Museum of Creative Arts since 1987 as well in group exhibitions in Norderhtadt (Germany), Moscow (Russia), Staffentorp (Sweden), Minsk (Belarus), New York (USA). Since 2014 - member of the board of the Association of Russian Artists of Estonia. In 2005 and 2019 Ida Virumaa Culture Prize Laureate. Many paintings are kept in private collections in Estonia, Finland, Germany, Italy, France, Russia, the USA.
 Y.Khorev


Tauno Kangro (born 1966) started his art studies in Kalju Reitel’s Sculpture Studio, has graduated Estonian Academy of Arts, sculpture department (1993) and is a member of the Estonian Artists’ Association since 1994. His creation may be found in many collections in Estonia, Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, USA, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Russia, etc. Tauno’s works have been exhibited in more than 70 individual exhibitions all over the world, additionally in many joint exhibitions.
To the question „What motivates you?“ replies Tauno Kangro „I am motivated if I can create something that has bigger value than my current presence in this world.”

Diskusija “Mitoloģijas metamorfozes šodien un rīt”

17.09.2021. - 16:00 - 18:00

Mākslas galerija MuseumLV un Kultūras centrs Grata JJ paziņo par diskusijas “Mitoloģijas metamorfozes šodien un rīt” norisi mākslinieka Artūra Bērziņa personālizstādes "Latvijai ausīs jauna diena" ietvaros 2021. gada 17. septembrī no plkst.16.00-18.00.

  Mākslas galerijā MuseumLV un Kultūras centrā Grata JJ līdz 23. septembrim var aplūkot savdabīgā multimediju mākslinieka Artūra Bērziņa jaunāko personālizstādi “Latvijai ausīs jauna diena". Izstādes ekspozīcijā iekļauta videospēle, lielformāta fotoinscenējumi, objekti un asamblāžas, kas apvienoti ciklā “Transpozīcijas”, turpinot pētīt kā individuālās, tā kolektīvās, īpaši nacionālās identitātes dažādus aspektus.

  Diskusijas aktualitāte un nosaukums “Mitoloģijas metamorfozes šodien un rīt” vistiešākā veidā saistīts ar mākslinieka daiļrades attīstību un viņa padziļinātu un noturīgu interesi par mitoloģiju. Artūrs Bērziņš atzīst, ka “nacionālās identitātes tēma manā mākslā aizsākās ar novērojumu, ka folkloras mantojums mūsu kultūrā tiek sakralizēts un glabāts nemainīgā stāvoklī kā iebalzamētais Ļeņins Kremļa pakājē. Manī šī atziņa izraisīja interesi. Kāda ģenēze ir šīm mitologēmām, kuras acīmredzami bremzē veiksmīgas identitātes attīstību? Vēstures doktora Kaspara Kļaviņa atziņas deva vēl vairāk vielas pārdomām – par mūsu vēsturi un kultūras mantojumu nevis kaut-ko savrupu, bet kā rezultātu mijiedarbībai ar visas Eiropas kultūru, kā arī par vēlāku nacionālā mīta radīšanu romantisma tradīcijā”.

  Mākslinieks nekad nav meklējis vieglas atbildes uz šiem būtiskajiem jautājumiem, par ko liecina šajā izstādē eksponētais arī jaunāko darbu cikls. Viņš ir radījis šodienas situācijai atbilstošus, savdabīgus vizuālus kalamburus, kuros iekļauti sengrieķu mītu tēli, nozīmīgas Latvijas vēsturiskas personības, mūsdienu Rietumu populāras kulta figūras un pat informācija par visaktuālākajiem sasniegumiem Visuma iekarošanā. Autors uzskata, ka mūsu realitātes robežas nepārtraukti mainās ar aizvien pieaugošu intensitāti. Tālab ir tik svarīgi katram personīgi, gan sabiedrībai kopumā reflektēt par pagātnes notikumiem un joprojām populāriem mītiem, kas mūs ietekmē. Plaši izplatītu priekšstatu, situāciju un elementu drosmīgu pārvietošanu Artūrs Bērziņš veicis sev raksturīgajā provokatīvā kiča manierē.

  Zīmīgi, ka diskusijas nosaukumā izmantots vārds metamorfozes, kas ir Romas 1. gadsimta dzejnieka Publija Ovidija Nāsona (Publius Ovidius Naso) episkas poēmas 15 grāmatās nosaukums. Tajā caur vēstījumu par seno grieķu un romiešu mītu varoņiem senais autors atklāj valodas un izteikšanās spējas vērtību, kuru metamorfožu jeb pārvēršanās rezultātā tēli parasti spēju runāt zaudē. Ovīdija poēma īpaši populāra bija Eiropā Renesanses laikā. Tad teksts vairākus gadsimtus bija it kā aizmirsts. 20. gadsimta beigās kā literatūrā, tā tēlotājā mākslā interese par šo tekstu un tajā izteiktajām atziņām atkal atdzimusi. Šajā aspektā liekas būtiska un diskusijas vērta arī mākslinieka Artūra Bērziņa daiļrade un viņa pievēršanās antīkajai mitoloģijai.
  Diskusijas dalībnieki: mākslinieki Artūrs Bērziņš un Lilija Dinere, teorētiķis un mākslas kritiķis Andris Teikmanis, literatūras zinātnieks Toms Ķencis, rakstnieķi Ieva Melgalve un Andris Zeibots. Diskusiju vadīs izstādes kuratore, mākslas zinātniece Irēna Bužinska.

  Sakarā ar valstī ieviestajiem noteikumiem, kas nosaka epidemioloģiskās drošības pasākumus, kas veicami, lai ierobežotu Covid-19 infekcijas izplatību, nepieciešams iepriekšējs pieraksts diskusijas apmeklējumam klātienē. Vietu skaits ierobežots.
Diskusijas norisi varēs aplūkot galerijas mājas lapā.

Rita Pranca. Solo exhibition "Quattour Viris".

13.08.2021. – 23.09.2021.

Rita Pranča personal exhibition of paintings and objects is dedicated to fantastic (from the point of view of a female painter) creatures - to men. 4 rooms of the gallery MuseumLV will be given to 4 heroes - men who has played different roles in the artist’s life. These 4 special worlds are combined into one integral emotional narrative, sometimes detached, sometimes quite intimate.

These men have been important figures in the life of Rita Pranca for 50 years: father - mechanical engineer Robert-Eugene Prancs, childhood friend - poet Alexander Zapol, husband - artist Andrey Bovtovics and an iconic person through her lifetime - Raymond Pauls. Each of these characters epresents their own professional world - the world of mechanics, the world of poetry, the world of painting and the world of music.

Layering of meanings and comparison of the spheres of perception of the world of men creates a history of the formation of the author's creative path.

This exhibition is an attempt to find the path and to define identification in the mirror of the male world. The artist has more than once turned in her work to the study of the borderline between the male and female ways of perceiving reality and the way a creative person exists in the dual world. A series of paintings and drawings by Rita Pranca is dedicated to the male nude model, as opposed to the traditional way of portraying the female nude model as both male artists and female artists.

Rita Pranca was born in Riga. She has taken part in group exhibitions in Latvia and abroad since 1992. In 1994 she presented her works at her first solo exhibition at the House of Journalists and since then has regularly organized her personal exhibitions. Recently, she found a new hobby for herself - ceramics and continues her studies in this field at the master's degree at the Latvian Academy of Arts.

Arthur Berzinsh. Solo exhibition "A New Day Will Arise For Latvia"

02.07.2021 - 23.09.2021

Multimedia artist Arthur Berzinsh is pleased to present his solo show A New Day Will Arise For Latvia as the next in a row of Transpositions cycle at MuseumLV art gallery.

The word "transposition" has a lot of meanings and explanations. It is used in biology, music, philosophy, linguistics, law, telecommunications and many other realms of social life. The medical meaning of the term is deeply personally for the author - back in childhood, he underwent a unique heart operation, where the transposition of blood vessels has become one of the central development. In order to further study various aspects of both individual and collective, and especially national identity in the conditions of accelerated transformation of modern reality, the artist uses the term of transposition as the main key for his concept. Therefore, a video game, a set of staged figurative compositions, realised as a large format photography, objects and assemblages has been created by Arthur in his beloved provocative kitsch manner for the show. Thus the capacity of this term allowed him to produce bold moves of well-known and widespread ideas, situations and elements. According to his vision, Arthur has created peculiar visual quirks corresponding to nowadays situation, combining heroes of ancient Greek myths, important Latvian historical personalities, modern Western popular cult figures and even information about the most current achievements in conquering the Universe with Latvian ornaments and self-created computer game elements. The artist believes that the boundaries of our reality are constantly changing with increasing intensity. Isn't it significant that the atypical combination of well-known ideas and concepts created by Arthur Berzinsh no longer seems so strange? Perhaps we can say that such a new semiotic rag of ideas, ornaments and elements, however, aptly captures some significant tendencies as in the words of K. Jung, "in the unconscious of society" and how the formation of the concept of individual and national identity takes place in it? The artist invites the viewer to make his own interpretation or transposition of this term with the assistance of a virtual game created especially for this exhibition,as he is convinced that in many cases game plays a very important role in both life and art.

“According to the epos about Lacplesis, who represents the manifestation of the heroic power of Latvia, the foreign invader takes away the source of strength - the ear. In my interpretation, the severed ear as a lost part of a whole, to some extent symbolizes the insurmountable trauma of the Latvian people. The exhibition was based on the idea to show the problem of the modern Western world, which is trying to turn against the concept of the individual as an indivisible, integral subject, replacing him with a dividual, a subject-constructor who can easily understand its components - or, recalling the events of the poem, this is an extra ear thrown into opening. To create my works, I used the method of transposition. ", - Arthur says.

About the artist. The artist was born on April 20, 1983 in Riga. He earned a MA degree in the Visual Communication at Department of the Latvian Academy of Arts. Artūrs Bērziņš has six solo exhibitions, including the exhibition “Barotava” (2017) at the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Center in his art history. The artist's previous solo exhibition “Great Loneliness” was held at the MuseumLV Art Gallery in 2018. Artist has participated in more than 50 group exhibitions and projects in Latvia and abroad. Simultaneously he carries out activities in a genre of performance. During 2017, 2018 and 2019, three performances of the artist took place at MuseumLV art gallery. In addition, Artūrs Bērziņš has created scenography for several plays directed by Dž.Dž. Džilindžer plays at Great Hall of the Daile Theater (2018-2019), as well as many videos, animations and short films, including videos for world music stars such as "Seven Lions" and "Cradle Of Filth". In 2010, the influential American Internet site Weirdworm.com ranked Artūrs Bērziņš sixth in the Top 10 of the world's most original artists. The artist's works are also used as prints on clothing, attracting the attention of the representatives of world's music and alternative fashion industry. Worth to mention the fact that in 2020, pop music diva Billie Eilish arrived at the London NME Awards ceremony wearing T-Shirt with Artūrs Bērziņš artwork print on it. In 2017, printing house Zvaigzne ABC published the artist's debut novel Twists of the Universe, which is the first example of the weird fiction genre in Latvian contemporary literature.

Gallery MuseumLV will open its doors to visitors from June 1.

31.05.2021.

Cultural Center Grata JJ and gallery MuseumLV are pleased to announce the resumption of their activities. The gallery will open its doors to visitors from June 1, according to the previous appointment. Visitors are asked to book their visit in a timely manner.
This can be done by calling 670 16 602, writing an email to info@museumlv.com or sending a message to WhatsApp (254 09 000).
Tickets can be purchased at “Biļešu Serviss” or by paying on the spot in the gallery. We offer two exhibitions - D. Luse's solo exhibition "Amalgams of time" and an exhibition - sale "100 works - 100 authors".


The gallery plans to resume its activities with the artist Dita Luse's solo exhibition "Amalgams of time", which was opened in the gallery last October. Shortly after its opening, a state of emergency was declared in the country and the gallery had to suspend its operations. Currently, the MuseumLV team gives visitors the opportunity to see the artist's works in person, which will be on display for several weeks.

About D. Luse’s exhibition “Amalgams of time”:

Like the olfactory memory that lets one perceive the smells based on the memories of things experienced and sensed in the past, the visible image sometimes gives a similar impulse – while you look at some visual evidence you are carried away in your thoughts to some different place and time, and you may see a whole different scene or event in your mind and become lost in the labyrinths of thought.

Writing and receiving letters is a form of relationship that is almost entirely lost nowadays, yet it is a long-lasting testimony to relationships, something that contemporary relations can not substantiate in a tangible form. The letters are also an evidence of the time one person devotes to another. It is something we do not do nowadays, we allocate much less time to the other person. Our day-to-day communication is short, fractured, careless, time-saving, which can become a hindrance to the well-being and enjoyment of our relationship.
The central image of the exhibition is the relationships, the evidence that they have left and that still influence the descendants. Perhaps it is essential and beautiful to stop at times and look at the love of two young people, the winding path of life through the evidence they have left – letters, with signs of foxing, photos, that still have an impact on us and show us who we are and where we come from.

For the inspiration of the exhibition there have been used authentic letters and photographs from the family archives.

Welcome to the gallery! MuseumLV is open from Tuesday to Saturday.

Kristīne Rubene. Solo exhibition "White, Red, Gray"

14.05.2021 -

Cultural center Grata JJ gallery Museum LV Ausekla street - 5
Exhibition is available from May 14, 2021

Safe consumption of art - Kristīne Rubene's solo exhibition “White, Red, Gray” will be opened in windows

The 14 th of May is a first day for the new MuseumLV gallery and Cultural Center Grata JJ exhibition season that starts with the solo show of Kristīne Rubene in show-windows at affiliate on Ausekla Street 5 and will be available 24/7 from the outside for anyone who is interested. It is a way to make art more accessible to the public in the current situation and to enrich the experience of Riga residents and city guests during their stay in the Quiet Center.

This exhibition is a contribution of the gallery’s team for maintaining a positive atmosphere and a gift to all residents in their daily lives and to those who walk in search of beauty, hoping to get a brighter view of the future. The affiliate of the Gallery is located on the first floor of the building and has eight 3m high windows facing Ausekla Street. This street is an active line in the historic Quiet Center, where it connects parks and cultural and historical sites.

The exhibition “White, Red, Gray” is an encouragement to passers-by, the contribution of MuseumLV and Grata JJ to the decoration of the urban environment, as well as another opportunity for the public to get acquainted with the works of contemporary Latvian artists. Special night lighting will provide opportunity to see works of art even in the dark.
The artist herself describes the idea of her exhibition as following:
“WHITE. It all starts with milk. The beginning of life. Without milk, we cannot enter and remain in this world. Milky rivers and jelly coasts.
RED. Eternal strawberry fields. Innocent joy and happiness. Sultry summer and sweet scent.
GRAY. Table. I would like to believe that it is the table that makes us better and smarter people. The table separates us from everything that is wild, fast and hasty. The table takes time. We sit next to it, have a meal, talk, we think and write. The table connects and lifts."

As it is unknown when the restrictions will be reduced and cultural institutions will be opened for their visitors, the MuseumLV and Grata JJ team believes that the exhibition is a great, epidemiologically safe alternative to indoor exhibitions or virtual content. A society that is tired of restrictions deserves art and artists also deserve for the world to see their works.

The exhibition can be viewed from the outside for free
