Black Market is a collaborative (together with Riga based gallery 427 and gallery Low) sales event – presentation installed and hosted by Kim? in Riga. Borrowing its name from the 1990s post-Soviet reality with clandestine markets all around the Baltics, this improvised art fair booth embraces the underdog status of the Riga art market scene with an attempt to overcome the curse of never being legal or financially viable. Black Market will open on December 1 and will run for two months (until January 31, 2021). It will include the recent works and series from Riga affiliated or Riga bound artists selected by the three galleries and curatorially arranged by the host. All sales will be split equally and shared among the gallery and participating artists.
Artists: Indriķis Ģelzis, Kaspars Groševs, Inga Meldere, Daria Melnikova, Elza Sīle, Viktor Timofeev, Amanda Ziemele, Ieva Kraule-Kūna and Elīna Vītola.
In parallel with the group exhibition Black Market, participation in Nada Miami 2020 is taking place in cooperation with 427 and Low, December 1 – 5, both in-person and online.
