On March 2, 2017 an open forum for doctoral students titled "Media transfiguration in research" took place from 16.30 until 20.00 in RISEBA Architecture and Media Centre H2O 6 Theatre Pavillion.
The forum investigates the analytical discourse on creating noted arworks through direct and inferred research by doctoral candidates from the leading Latvian art institutions as well as international keynote speakers to build up an informal network based platform where the exchange of ideas and latest trends in the international art scene augment the boundaries of media art at the current socio-geopolitical cultural setting.
The forum is led by our doctoral student Aigars Ceplītis
Introduction by Dr. Rasa Smite and Chris Hales.
Participants: Maija Demitere, Paula Vītola, Baiba Baikovska, Antra Cilinska, Aigars Ceplītis, Jānis Garančs.
Keynote presentations by Dr. Nigel Newbutt (UK) and Dr. Raivo Kelomees (EE).
The 2nd colloquium this year will take place in June – in SERDE, Aizpute, and finishing the year with the 3rd in November, in LiepU MPLab in Liepaja.
