Exhibition "Recent acquisitions of the Latvian National Museum of Art"

17 Nov - 28 Jan

How does it reflect the given era? What artworks in the museum's storeroom represent the 21st century? These are the questions that the exhibition and its program of sideline events will look to answer through a debate with participation of artists, museum experts and the general public.

Dainis Pundurs solo-exhibition - Porcelain and lucid dreaming

Artist Dainis Pundurs (1965) has chosen clay, stone clay and porcelain as the visualization materials for his thoughts and view of the world - basically, all ceramics materials.

Artūrs Bērziņš solo exhibition

02 Feb - 10 Mar
In this exhibition, called Great Loneliness, Artūrs Bērziņš' works fluctuate between looking for seriousness in the content and playing with cognitive features through form. As usual in the works of Artūrs Bērziņš, the obviously clear message in his images are most likely deceptive and hold a double bottom with an opposite meaning, as is everything we face in this period of information war.
