From the opening evening presentation 0

On the evening of 28 September, the team held a celebratory presentation for supporters, friends and guests at the welcoming Gallery Park Hotel. Established in May of this year, the internet platform has made the art processes in the Baltics, Russia and Scandinavia available for ready perusal through its international approach, rich content and love of originality and modernity. The opening event took place in the hotel's underground parking garage, where guests were entertained with a poetry performance by the group “Orbit”, video projections and music. An exclusive preview of the fashion short film, “Creak”, by the fashion designer, Keta Gūtmane, and film director, Mārtiņš Grauds, rounded out the evening; the film will officially premier at the Pompidou Center in Paris, 7 – 9 October.
