The gallery's basic mission is based on the idea of finding its special place and meaning in the international art world by offering a powerful, creative and many-sided modern and contemporary art generation. Since 1999 the Māksla XO gallery has developed a well thought out programme of exhibitions that includes solo exhibitions by the artists represented by the gallery and annual gallery projects - group shows.
Galerija Istaba is an art gallery, a shop and a restaurant featuring relaxed and artistic atmosphere. The Bufete Restaurant upstairs opens up a view on the exhibition at the gallery and Kr.Barona Street. Each table is decorated differently to remind one of an actual room (istaba).
