The exhibition is dedicated to the Art Academy of Latvia, its faculty and students, highlighting the significance of creative freedom and art education both in a historical perspective and in our times of anxiety.
The exhibition features the graduation work of the distinguished masters Ilmārs Blumbergs (1943 – 2016), Imants Vecozols (1933) and Boriss Bērziņš (1930 – 2002), created between 1959 and 1972, providing insights into the art tendencies of the time. The current generation of LMA faculty is represented by three women in art – Amanda Ziemele (1990), Līga Spunde (1990) and Maija Kurševa (1981), veritable forces in the contemporary art scene and fundamental contributors to the skill and knowledge development of young artists in their educational work, advancing the inheritance of experiences within the art field.
