Arnis Balčus about the Scene exhibition

From 14 September until 16 November 2023, the ISSP Gallery is hosting Scene, an exhibition by Arnis Balčus focusing on today’s alternative youth subculture aka young punks. The “scene” is a music-rooted community in Riga that reached its peak after the pandemic, when concerts by alternative music bands at clubs and venues such as Depo, Republika, and Lastādija became an important platform for young people to socialise and express themselves creatively. Arnis Balčus is a photographer, journalist, cultural project manager, editor of FK Magazine and the director of Riga Photomonth.
