Exhibition opening. Celebrate Porcelain with Kuznetsov. 

📆 February 10, 2023 at 18.00

Zuzeum Art Centre invites you to the opening event of the exhibition ‘Celebrate Porcelain with Kuznetsov’ on Friday, 10 February at 18.00. 

In the course of the evening, visitors will have the opportunity to be the first to visit the exhibition ‘Celebrate Porcelain with Kuznetsov’ at the exhibition halls of Zuzeum as well as to learn more about the exhibition by attending guided tours with the curators and members of exhibition team. 

DJs Jazzy Marky and Nick Ustinov will take care of the musical mood throughout the evening playing a wide selection of the best vinyl. Zuzeum Cafe will provide a special menu of cocktails and snacks for the exhibition opening night.

The exhibition ‘Celebrate Porcelain with Kuznetsov’ with more than 1000 porcelain, faience and clay objects from the Zuzāns Collection as well as archival materials, will tell the story of the manufacturing of Kuznetsov porcelain. The exhibition is a continuation of Zuzeum’s ‘Kuznetsov Project’, whose main aim is to celebrate the beginnings of porcelain manufacturing in Latvia and also trace its succession, hence the central place in the exhibition is given to the factory in Latvia, which also constitutes the broadest part of the collection. To better understand the origins of the Kuznetsovs’ porcelain manufacturing, the exhibition is accompanied by a structured presentation of examples of production from almost all Kuznetsov factories, making it possible to grasp the place and significance of the Riga factory in the Kuznetsov porcelain empire and discover cross-influences among the different cultures.
