The Museum of Decorative Art and Design, Riga, is organizing this 5th Triennial to the theme of “Diversity & Unity”. The exhibition will take place from 23 April to 10 June, 2015 at the Exhibition Hall Arsenãls where also the very first Triennial in 2001 had been shown in conjunction with the 11th ETN Conference in Riga, Latvia 1). The theme was selected due to the fact that Latvia will become the country of presidency for the EU in 2015, therefore the emphasis lies on national identity in the context of the EU and the global world.
International artists are asked to submit one work, not displayed in major international exhibitions before, with a maximum size of 3 x 3 x 3 metres.

  1. I have had two opportunity to participate in the Riga textile triennials. One as a artist where I won The special Prize with the Wonderbra, 2010. And then in this one I was invited for the triennial comitee to take a exposition about The wonderwoman art bra with the participation of 40 art bras from Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Dominican Rep, Canada, Spain and Uruguay, and it was a succesful art exhibition that it was taken to Vilna, Lithuania to ARKA Gallery.
    The art bras still in Vilna, and we are looking for a new space to send them and exhibit in Europe.
    Please write if you have interest.
    Thank you Riga.
