In modern terminology, the word "academic" sometimes takes on a heavier tone, so the intended format of the exhibition will be a way of viewing it in the original sense defined by Plato - a free, creative process of thinking. Inspired by this example, the exhibition intends to convey the spirit, place and atmosphere of the Latvian Academy of Art by creating an exhibition that would serve as a "living history". Art Academy students and teaching staff will participate in the exhibition each with their own vision of the specific department they represent. The main aim of the project is to show the direct connection of the new generation's activities with global processes in the international art scene.
