Riga is a trade center between Western Europe and Northern Europe and Eastern Europe from the ancient medieval times."RIGA ART FAIR 2016 'basic exhibition takes place 21-30 November" Latvian Railway History Museum ".
World art system, in my opinion: 1- extreme left wing is the Art Biennale with multimedia performances. 2- Right-wing conservative big auction houses offer art market gathers the best selection of antiques. 3- Gallery carries a selection of the region's most prospective authors. Art Fair performs selections from the gallery. Viewers and collectors receive recommendations for optimal sound investment in the art market.
