From September 5 to October 5, 2013 the Mūkusala Art Salon will simultaneously present 4 exhibitions. The works of the classics of Latvian painting interplay with representatives of contemporary art, whose works have been created as topical parallels or direct references to the art of the previous centuries.


Landscape, an exhibition of works by the classic of Latvian painting, Konrāds Ubāns (1893-1981), will be on display in the Main Gallery. It follows the artistic handwriting of the master, starting from his early study years, modernist experiments, and, finally, with the formation of his mature style. The paintings of K.Ubāns will be reinterpreted in Passage of Time, video projections on the facade of the Mūkusala Art Salon by Ineta Sipunova (1970). The cityscapes of Pārdaugava come to life through video recordings of these places, reflecting on the passing of time, changes in the city, its inhabitants, and building a bridge between Riga of the 20th and 21st centuries.


Animal Painting, the latest works by contemporary artist Kristians Brekte (1981), created tracing hunter collectives and recording their game, will be on show in the Upper Gallery. That same subject was beloved by late 18th - early 19th century painter and hunter, popular in the Baltics, Johann Heinrich Baumann (1753-1832). His animals, birds and hounds in landscapes are presented in Game, a three-work exposition in the Balcony of the Salon.
