I have been invited to a truly great festival which title and list of topics was exactly in the thread of the research I’m doing for my project DIGITAL NOMADS.
It was very exciting to go to Riga and listen to all the key speakers, i must say that the format of conference/exhibition was exactly my thing. I hope to return to this amazing festival and definitely I will return to Riga (loved it!).
VIRTUALITIES AND REALITIES is the theme of this year’s RIXC Art Science festival in Riga, Latvia, that aims to establish a space for artistic interventions and conversations about the complex implications of immersive technologies.
RIXC Festival is internationally renowned gathering for artists and scholars working at the intersection of arts, digital humanities and science. This year’s festival programme features Public Keynotes, the 2nd Open Fields Conference, Exhibitions, Performances and AR/VR Showcases.
The main festival events will take place from October 19–21, 2017, in some of Riga’s most visible art venues – the Conference will take place in the Art Academy of Latvia, and the Latvian National Museum of Art, while the exhibitions – in kim? Contemporary Art Centre and RIXC Gallery spaces.
