"Blouin Artinfo" calls Latvian expo at Venice Biennale "must see"

RIGA, Aug 15 - Latvia's exposition at the 55th Venice Biennale - "North by Northeast", is among five national expositions that the arts news portal "Blouin Artinfo" is calling "must see" and "highly recommended".

The exposition features the creative genius of two artists - Kaspars Podnieks and Kriss Salmanis.

Minster of Culture Zaneta Jaunzeme-Grende expressed her pride and pleasure for the recognition the exposition has received. "We can be proud that the modern, very Latvian, cultural traditions-based exposition has been noticed by the world and internationally praised," the minister emphasized in a statement released to the press.

"Latvia's achievement, and the interest shown by art critics and the average visitor alike, once again give proof that culture is the best method we have to tell the world about our country," said Jaunzeme-Grende.
