LIEPĀJA ART FORUM 2020

From September 25 till September 27 The Liepāja Art Forum invites you to ten different events – dance performances, an art exhibition, a poetry disco, a creative workshop for young people, a discussion, a concert of avant-garde chamber music, film nights, a theater performance for children and parents, and an unusual multimedia concert. We will meet artists from Latvia, the US, Belgium, France, and Palestine. 


In these unusual times, words of the famous American professor and mathematician John Allen Paulos come to mind: “Uncertainty is the only certainty there is”. These foretelling words sound especially true during the pandemic, and uncertainty becomes the base layer of the adjusted program for the contemporary art festival Liepāja Art Forum. They remind us and make us once again contemplate how uncertain, unpredictable and fickle the life is that has been granted to humans. How unpredictably events turn and how relative their lastingness is. However, in accepting these conditions of certain uncertainty, perhaps we can view it as a field of great opportunities – to assess, transform or redefine things and phenomena that have to do with all of us, to think about what meaningful life is and how to achieve it.
