Kim? Contemporary Art Centre
Solo Show by Kristīne Kursiša

The solo exhibition by Kristīne Kursiša already listed on the creative autobiography of the artist (see  below) will feature photographs – observations collected throughout several years, Google images found both intentionally and by accident, reconstructed anew in photographs. Stories in these images are not of global significance or particularly valuable for the society, but they are of special importance in the eyes of the author.
