Photo exhibition “The Sixties: Looking at the City

More than a half a century has passed since Sixties and this distance allows confidently talking about that the time as a unique period that reshaped lifestyles of millions of people around the globe. First and foremost it was the time of freedoms and hopes that came to light through student protests and sexual revolution in the West and warming of the political climate in the Soviet Union as a result of the de-Stalinisation. Changes also manifested themselves in a utopian view of the city reflected on both sides of the Iron Curtain. This exhibition offers an opportunity to see  the Sixties city through photographic lens. The exhibition shows works of Vladimirs Gailis (2017–2009), Gunārs Binde (b. 1933), Laimonis Stīpnieks (b. 1936) and Māra Brašmane (b. 1944). Curator of the exhibition – Jekaterina Vikuļina, designer – Egils Mednis.
