The exhibition “Jewellery by Artists: From Picasso to Koons. Diane Venet’s Collection”, organized by and held in the Cupola Hall of the main building of the Latvian National Museum of Art, is a first for Latvia. Never before have so many artworks (113 units) created by the most eminent artists of the 20th and 21st centuries been put on public display in this small Baltic nation. Almost every one of the 81 artists whose names accompany the works are well known to art aficionados, making the exhibition a kind of pocket guide to not only art history, but to today’s art scene as well.

One could rightfully call the show a journey into elusive sensations and explorations that materialize into concentrated inspiration – right here, right now. The Latvian artistic duo of MAREUNROL'S are the creative minds behind the exhibition’s conceptual layout; the exhibition is ongoing through December 3.

The exhibition is sponsored by SIA “Alfor”, Latvia's national airline “airBaltic”, Porsche Center Riga, Live Riga, the French Institute in Latvia, Gallery Park Hotel, and P.R.A.E. Public Relations. Advertising support: “Pastaiga” magazine and “Delfi” online news service. The exhibition's collaborative partner is the Latvian National Museum of Art.
