The aim of the exhibition is to demonstrate the overall environment of objects in the 1960ies. In the history of design, it was a very innovative period.

Iveta Vecenāne's works are based on the ancient archetypal thinking of the Balts, and the perfectly fit in today's reality through the creation of harmony with contemporary textiles. The artist persistently fights against the grey daily routine, creates a colourful, mythical world and invites to a conversation about the softness that is hidden deep inside colours, blossoms and woman's power.

The exhibition consists of several jewellery collections and series.

The most dominant character in Armand Rassenfosse's works is a woman, and the collection of his works at the Latvian National Museum of Art reflects two sides of author's creations — his women can be gracefully beautiful idols and demons that bring disaster at the same time. This exhibition also reveals the dual nature of a woman.

At the end of 1920ies, Latvian art was becoming influenced by Belgian artists, which developed further in the 1930ies to the "Belgian trend" in the local painting. Even though Latvian artists also got inspired by contemporary French artists, classical poetry masters from Europe and other patterns, contemporary critics and Latvian art historians always highlight the critical influence from Belgian art, which overwhelmed other inspiration sources.
