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 Ganibu 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.
We invite you to the EXHIBITION 1.5 at MASA gallery, which is open from the 27th of July, finally gathering vivid ensemble of 5 artists and reviving our group exhibition cycle. Visitors will get caught up in the whirlwind of 5 diverse flamboyant energies and dive in each one to learn their immersive stories.
Participants: Eduards Tutins, Kseniya Orlovska, Jevgeniya Vakuh, Kseniya Labecka, Ilze Pavare.
Curators: Kseniya Afanasyeva, Nika Kutuzova.
