The exhibition The Last Match travels to Poland to the amazing Ligatura Comics Festival, where it will be called something like “w ostatnim meczu”. The exhibition has already been displayed in Riga, Lisbon, Linz, Lucerne, Haarlem, Erlangen, Leipzig, Tbilisi and Prague and now after a short break travels further.
The opening of the exhibition will be on the third of June. At the festival the exhibition curator David Schilter will be present together with Latvian artist Ingrida Picukane, Martins Zutis and Oskars Pavlovskis. There will be 273 contributions from 51 different countries on display.
There will for example also be contributions from Polish artists Janek Koza (PL), Agata Nawrot (PL), Agnieszka Piksa (PL), Anna Maria Łuczak (PL) and Patryk Mogilnicki. As the exhibition keeps on growing, we hope to get more Polish artists for the upcoming shows. Especially excited we are, that at the Festival will also be present some other international exhibition contributors such as Jeroen Funke (NL), Aleksandar Zograf (SRB), Tom Gauld (UK), Léo Quiévreux (F), Lucie Lomová (CZ) and David Böhm (CZ).
the exhibition currently contains 226 artworks from artists of 44 countries. The exhibition is currently busy travelling around. To see where it is going and where it already was, you can go to our main page to: http://komikss.lv/?section=Events
On http://www.flickr.com/photos/thelastmatch you can now see all current 191 contributions from 41 different countries. (participant artists I -IV)
Did you send us your contribution a while ago and we never answered you? Well we did not forget you, we always send a mail immediately after receiving the paper. In this case your contribution probably was lost in the mail, like at least 5 other contributions we know of… If you did send us something and you are not on the list on the right, please send us a mail (komikss(at)gmail(.)com). If you want then we send you a new paper and you can take part once more and send it to us registered, as this might be safer….
The last match travels to nextComic festival in Linz. The festival takes place from 25.2 -05.03 all over the city, which was European Culture Capital 2009. The exhibition currently features artworks from 185 artists from 50 different countries, but once it arrives in Linz, there might be even more.
As Marcos from Chili Com Carne wrote us, the exhibition was succesfully opened in the Galery Artside in Lisbon. Together with the exhibition opening was also the release of the Portuguese “Massive” Anthology. Below you can see some picture of the exhibition. As you can see it was extended with some other match related artworks. The pictures are a little bit blurry, but this might be due to the fact that the Latvian embassy brought Rigas Balsams…
The last match exhibition travels further in an extended version to Lisabon, Portugal. Now there are 165 artists from 38 countries. The full list you can see on the right column. Under “participants II” you can see the new artists.
The exhibition will be opened at 16.30 on the 16th of January in the gallery Artside and will be opened until the 8th of February.
Lot of thanks to CHILI COM CARNE for hosting the exhibition and also big thanks to the Latvian Embassy in Portugal for their great support!
