Zuzeum Art Centre

Zuzeum Art Centre is a new space for art in Riga and the home of the Zuzāns Collection – the largest private collection of Latvian art in the world. Zuzeum is housed in a former cork factory designed and built in 1910 by architect and engineer Edmund von Trompowsky. It already functioned when the first modernists were active in Riga and art schools were founded. Zuzeum is a new addition to the arts infrastructure of the Baltic Sea region, providing a unique space for cultural exchange, and public access to the growing Zuzāns Collection. Located in between the historical centre of Riga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the upcoming Rail Baltica railway integrating Helsinki, Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius, and Warsaw into the European rail network, the yellow brick building aims to continue the story of Riga’s metropolitan past. With 1,100 square metres of dedicated exhibition space spread over two galleries, a sculpture garden, workshop area, cafe, roof terrace, and art shop, as well as programmes of guided tours, talks, meditation, films, and DJ nights, Zuzeum invites everyone to feel at home with art.
