Synergy: contemporary tendencies in metal art and design

This exhibition will highlight current artistic trends and creative directions in the experimental, innovative and classic forms of decorative art, objects and design items involving metal.

Metal art is an active phenomenon in Latvian history of culture with developed traditions – beginning from the goldsmiths’ guilds in Riga and the smiths in forges all the way to forging and casts in the Soviet ideological climate and contemporary authors, whose expressions vary from individual search for form in the context of art to the fulfilling of standard commercial orders merging into the field of contemporary design and entrepreneurship.
