The Riga Photography Biennial – NEXT is an international contemporary art event focusing on the analysis of visual culture and artistic representation. NEXT will take place in Riga from 8 May to 11 August, focusing on young and promising artists from the Baltics, Nordic countries and Europe who are still in the early stages of their careers. This international contemporary art event invites art enthusiasts to visit exhibitions, a symposium and discussions as well as meet the artists and curators at event venues and online.

This year’s NEXT 2021 programme focuses not only on young artists but also on curators, highlighting the role of curator as a mediator between the viewer, the artist and the work of art. During this difficult time, when digital communication has become the main form of communication for many people around the world, several of the biennial’s exhibitions and events have gained even more relevance, focusing on the heritage of today’s digital age and its impact on our perception, cognition and image culture in general. The Biennial will present an education programme that will offer opportunities to meet the artists and curators and attend various events in situ and online.
