EU4ART Short Term Workshop of Sculpture “Architecture and Sculpture, the missing connection”

From March 28 to April 8, 2022, short-term workshops took place at Art Academy of Latvia as part of the EU4ART project. Students from the EU4ART university alliance, consisting of the art academies in Budapest, Dresden, Riga and Rome had the opportunity to participate in workshops on graphics, painting and sculpture.

Description of the topic: Architecture and Sculpture has always been closely connected fields, however lately the link is missing. The aim of the exercise is to find a way to reconnect both fields. Students will be asked to explore urban environment of the city of Riga and its’ architecture and propose solutions to enrich and improve existing space by creating sculpture or installation proposals for existing architectural infrastructure and buildings.
