Mosaic – Exhibition Identity Signs

On the occasion of the International Festival of Cultural Diversity, this exhibition presents 29 mosaics created by young artists and their professors from art academies in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, and France during a workshop in Riga, Latvia in November 2009.
The goal of this project was to favour dialogue and cooperation between artists from France, the Baltic countries, and the Caucasus in an effort to analyze and express their experiences through artistic messages on their different cultural roots, aspects of identity, and connections in cultural diversity. The project was organized by the Academy of Art of Latvia in partnership with the Latvian National Commission for UNESCO in the framework of the UNESCO project “Caucasus.”
