The brooch is an ancient adornment that is also mentioned in folk songs. The Exhibition Value Brooch will adorn the city. Its jewels are values that enrich, bring joy and play an important role. We conducted a survey to find out the values important to children and youth. When asked to write down the values they found important, the students of our school (8-16 years old) gave various answers that show the broad view of children and the youth. This exhibition gives the new generation a chance to show how the world looks through their eyes: things, qualities, relationships, events that they care about and that make their life complete. In one circle, they will radiate colourful light that will bring joy, encourage and acknowledge. We urge you to look for (the valuable, the important), to adorn (make it beautiful, attractive), to share (to show it to others).
The Exhibition Value Brooch will display the best – roughly 200 large-scale prints selected by an international judging panel in the city centre, on Esplanade, by the Art Museum, and virtually – at vertibusakta.lv. Participants shall submit digitalised images (photos or scans). These images may be supplemented by text that complements the composition as a graphic element. Description of the value represented in the artwork may be submitted as well.
Due to the fact that the exhibition will be held in the city environment which is multi-coloured and dynamic it is advised to make artworks featuring larger coloured areas, and clear compositions that are easy to read. Please submit your works by 8 June 2020 at vertibusakta.lv. The Rules of Procedure of the exhibition are available on the website.
