From August 20 to September 26 the Mūkusala Art Salon presents the collection exhibition “Me and Me”.

Without exaggeration the portrait can be called the most important sign of a person's identity, every person's essence can be found within. The self-portrait is even more engaging as it offers artists unlimited opportunities in representation of their self-image, not worrying about the sitter's taste or requirements.

The exhibition “Me and Me” will underscore the various functions of self-likenesses – the representative (me as an artist), the playful (me as Münchausen, me as a son of the sun, etc.), the escapist (me as a fugitive in time to another century or decade) and the social (me as a family member, etc.) thus characterising not only the person's chosen identity but also the era. Different media from Latvian art of the 20th – 21st centuries are represented – painting, prints, sculpture. Authors of the most memorable self-portraits are: Aleksandrs Apsītis, Leonīds Āriņš, Auseklis Baušķenieks, Ansis Butnors, Vladimirs Glušenkovs, Atis Jākobsons, Imants Lancmanis, Kārlis Padegs, Jānis Pauļuks, Miervaldis Polis, Līga Purmale, Roberts Stārosts, Maija Tabaka, Alberts Terpilovskis, Rita Valnere, Johans Valters, Hilda Vīka and others.
