The Portfolio Review is part of the opening day events for the Riga Photography Biennial - NEXT 2019. Other opening events will include the opening of the (UN)NATURAL BODIES exhibition by young Polish artists on 4 April, the opening of RPB's 'Seeking the Latest in Photography' award winner Annija Muižule's solo exhibition 'Joyful Businessmen Having Fun in the Office' at the ISSP Gallery on 4 April, and the 'Manifestations of (In)Activism in the Latest Baltic Art' symposium at the ISSP Gallery on 6 April featuring emerging photographers, artists and curators from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Germany and Poland.

The Riga Photography Biennial (RPB) is an international contemporary art event focusing on the analysis of visual culture and artistic representation. Whilst spanning various fields and encompassing significant events, it creates an opportunity to meet several internationally renowned art industry professionals. The RPB Off-year Programme highlights young and promising artists from the Baltic, Nordic and other European countries who are still in the early stages of their careers, delivering opportunities to announce their presence to a wider context. The Riga Photography Biennial - NEXT embodies the idea of movement by asking 'Does whatever comes next in any way link to what was before? Can the new really be radically new?' The exhibition of the finalists for the 'Seeking the Latest in Photography' award, which is the main event of RPB - NEXT, excites viewers with a contemporary point of view and a conceptual and emotional depth revealing the power of image and presenting work that invites contemplation and reflection on our deepest-held preconceptions.

The Riga Photography Biennial - NEXT 2019 is organised in partnership with the State Culture Capital Foundation of Latvia, Riga City Council, ISSP Gallery, Goethe-Institut Riga, the Adam Mickiewicz Institute (PL), the Nordic Council of Ministers' Office in Latvia, Alma Gallery, Ziemeļblāzma Culture Palace, Pavlov's Dog Gallery (Berlin/DE), NoRoutine Books (LT), the Latvian Museum of Photography, the Estonian Embassy in Latvia, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland, the Embassy of Sweden, Lux Express, Rixwell Hotel and others.
