Residencies and presentations of Aristarkh Chernyshev and Sergey Teterin are
organised by Residencies and Information Centre (RIC) for Artists in Riga
(http://www.arthome.lv) in collaboration with RIXC - Centre for New Media
Culture (http://www.rixc.lv).

The development of Artists-in-Residence (AIR) program is based on
collaboration between the inovative local and international art
organizations and artists. AIR aims to contribute to creative development in
many fields of art through providing social and cultural platform for work.
The AIR program enables artists and arts scholars to work on individual and
collaboration projects. Artists are welcome to apply and are encouraged to
develop cooperative projects with local artists and arts institutions as
part of their residency project.

RIXC is the joint effort of a number of independent local cultural groups
working in the fields of new media, art, film, music, youth culture and the
social projects. The aim of the centre is to bridge the traditional gap
between 'high' and popular culture and the divisions between various youth,
sub- and minority cultures. The RIXC intends to become a meeting place for
different types of culture on local and international scale.

RIXC is the member of NICE network (Nordic-Baltic-North-East European
network for small scale innovative initiatives in the field of new media
culture (http://nice.x-i.net), and takes part in other international and
cross disciplinary networks, co-projects and mailing-lists in the field of
new media culture in Europe, Canada and other parts of the world.
