What are the typical traits of the Latvian art in the 21st century? What are the current trends? What questions does it ask? What values does it affirm, question or reject? 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.
The Latvian National Museum of Art is the largest depository of professional art in Latvia. Its collection lists more than 100,000 works of art and keeps growing, providing an ever broadening and more detailed picture of the history of the Latvian art - its development, accomplishments and deflections, highlighting the role of certain personalities.
