The first edition of the new initiative Riga Photography Biennial opened in the midst of April with a diverse program that varied from the large-scale international exhibition RESTART, to a symposium Image and Photography in the Post-digital Era, and many solo exhibitions organized in partnership with local art institutions. The questions that had already crossed my mind while only anticipating the biennial’s start were – why photography? and - why biennial? Fortunately many of the artists, writers, speakers and their works I encountered during the opening week directed me to manifold answers and more specific questions meandering between the chemical, botanical, socio-political, and historic roots of photography and image, as well as its possible futures.

Interview with Dr. Roxana Marcoci - Part II.

Author: Ruxanda Renita

I used to walk by the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C. and then think of our need for diversity. Female artists, European, American, non-Western artists, as well as digital media, photography… Do we really have to be part of a single cultural field? Last week, Dr. Roxana Marcoci –the Senior Curator of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, invited me to a forum on contemporary photography. She indicated that artists, curators, journalists, and theorists will be present. You might think that this was another traditional panel discussion on photography. What I witnessed instead was a lively, robust, and eloquent conversation on how photography can be interrelated to the other art mediums. No, this was not a remark made by the millennials in the audience, but rather a concept brought up the curators at MoMA. More
