Join us for the Opening Reception of Krista Svalbonas, Desiderium, at CFEVA on January 25, 2024 from 5-7pm.

Krista Svalbonas explores architecture’s relationship to cultural identity, ideas of home and migration. Her cultural background as an ethnically Latvian/Lithuanian artist informs this interest. Krista’s parents spent many years after the end of World War II in displaced-person camps in Germany before they were allowed to emigrate to the United States. Her connection to this history has made Krista acutely aware of the impact of politics on architecture, and in turn on a people’s daily lived experience. This exhibition highlights several of Krista’s recent bodies of work focusing on the history of the Baltic states surrounding WWII.
