About us

Kim? is an art centre devoted to ideas, gestures, textures and interventions that shifts from “a well trained chameleon face” (Zane Onckule) to a cadavre exquis, from “a polygon, a laboratory, a lighthouse” (Jānis Borgs) to a hybrid organism. Founded in 2009, Kim? has actively contributed to the art discourse both in Latvia and on a global scale with extensive exhibition programming, as well as international collaborations, discussions, publications, talks and performances. Over the years Kim? has worked with both emerging and renowned artists, theoreticians, curators, philosophers, translators and thinkers of other spheres aiming to provide a responsive context to their work and to make critical practices accessible to a wider audience.

Kim? with its name being a question itself (“kas ir māksla?” – what is art?) inhabits an ongoing series of questions – what it means to be a cultural agent today and to contribute to the vast landscape of contemporary art, how to show and talk about art, thinking about how art functions in differing contexts of local and global economies, traditions, cultures and subcultures, between the disappearance and reappearance of identities.

With over 200 exhibitions under its belt, Kim? continues to probe, to question, and to show.
