Shared History

public spaceAsnate Bockis

“Exhibition Shared Histories is an unobtrusive invite for a conversation. (...) Works of this exhibition talk about different type of power relations- national and multicultural, individual and collective, our own and alien, as well as the identities that these relationships create." - Helmuts Caune, "Neuzbāzīgs piedāvājums sarunai",, 02.11.2018. 

The works of the exhibition are placed in the galleries of the permanent collection inconspicuously but purposefully. The design of the exhibition furniture is inspired by the historic interior of the building, its architectonic details and decorative surface finishings. The exhibition furniture both blends in the interior and stands on itself due to material color and texture combinations used in designs.
