TUR_telpa is a space in Riga dedicated to contemporary art. In its large hall that opens on the vibrant Tallinas ielas Kvartāls, TUR_telpa aims to create high quality, curated art exhibitions. Collaborating with the distinctive characteristic of the space – which refers to both the traditional white cube and the building’s industrial past – artists are invited to create new work and encouraged to experiment beyond what might be their conventional practice. Interdisciplinary exchange is also a primary goal of TUR_telpa and events are programmed that bring new perspectives on the ideas behind the exhibitions, seeking crossovers into different disciplines. Finally, TUR_telpa seeks to also engage an audience beyond the traditional “art bubble” and is uniquely situated in Tallinas ielas Kvartāls to do so, creating a low threshold for passersby without relinquishing quality, and integrating a meeting place within the presentation space ideal for conversations, workshops and other forms of exchange.
