About

LV / Galerija “MASA” ir nekomerciāls mākslas projekts, kas radīts, lai atbalstītu māksliniekus un dotu viņiem iespēju eksponēt mākslas darbus neatkārīgi no izglītības, pieredzes, vecuma vai statusa. Mūsu aicinājums ir palīdzēt māksliniekiem atrast savu auditoriju, kā arī auditorijai piedāvāt alternatīvo kontentu. Mēs radām kopienu, kur radošas personas var izpausties, iedvesmoties, apspriest dažādas tēmas un satikt jaunus domubiedrus.
 

Galerija ir dibināta 2020. gada jūnijā bijušajā tiltu rūpnīcā Ganību dambī ar nosaukumu “CON-NON-CON”. 2021. gadā tika atklāts projekta turpinājums - galerija “MASA”. Mēs esam daļa no biedrības “NVO PROGRESS” un darbojamies kā bezpeļņas organizācija. Mūsu mājas atrodas vēsturiskajā ēkā pašā Grīziņkalna sirdī, kur pašrocīgi veicām renovāciju, cienot tradīcijas un saglabājot industriālo stilu.
 

Pirmā galerijas “MASA” izstāde “EXHIBITION 1.1 SAMO” atvēra savas durvis apmeklētājiem 8.oktobrī. Tajā piedalās 8 mākslinieki, dažiem no tiem šī ir pirmā reize. Katram ir savs mākslas virziens, bet kopā tie veido lielisku sinerģiju. Izstādes dalībnieki: Jegors Buimisters, Inta Gloda, Black Skich, Anna Omni, Kat Rue, Reinis Baumanis, Milana Rudenko, Stephanie Zapolska. 
 

ENG / Gallery “MASA” is a non-commercial art project, which was created to support artists, allowing them to exhibit artworks regardless of education, experience, age or status. Our aspiration is to help artists find their audience, and what is more, offer alternative content to the audience. We have established a community, where creative people can express themselves, gain inspiration, discuss various topics and meet like-minded people.
 

The gallery was founded in June 2020 in the former bridge factory near Ganību dambis and was named “CON-NON-CON”. In 2021, the project was reopened under the name "MASA". We are a part of the “NVO PROGRESS” association and operate as a non-profit organization. Our home is located in the historical building in the very heart of Grizinkalns, where the renovation was made with our hands respecting traditions and preserving the industrial style.

 

The first exhibition of the "MASA" gallery "EXHIBITION 1.1 SAMO" welcomed visitors on 8th October, presenting 8 artists, for some of whom this was their debut. Each one has its own style of art, but together they create a great synergy. Exhibition participants: Egor Buimister, Inta Gloda, Black Skich, Anna Omni, Kat Rue, Reinis Baumanis, Milana Rudenko, Stephanie Zapolska.
