Since 1972 Sculpture Quadrennial Riga has been the biggest regular contemporary art exhibition in Latvia organised every four years in the city of Riga. The event fosters understanding and links between the centre and periphery in contemporary art.
The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia has recognised Sculpture Quadrennial Riga as the cultural event of national and international importance and approved the Centre for Art Management and Information (MMIC) as the management structure for the event.
