Until 30 November, an exhibition „Nudity” is held at The Mūkusala Art Salon. It's a chronological view on the best works from nude as an art genre representing more than 70 Latvian artists including Janis Rozentāls, Konrāds Ubāns, Boriss Bērziņš, Vilnis Zābers, Otto Zitmanis and many others.

A naked person is a person without clothes. Nude is a genre of art that has been a constant presence in Western culture with its own traditions and iconography. Basing its imagery on Ancient mythology and Biblical motifs, the image of the naked woman in visual art for a long time was predominantly a source of ocular pleasure for the male viewer. During the 20th century the nude has become both an established form of kitsch, and undergone a deconstruction by Feminism and other critical theories. The exhibition traces the transformations of the nude, starting from classical examples of the early 20th century and concluding with postmodern games with art-historical examples, references to visual culture and nudity as a conscious artistic means for expression of ideas outside the traditional rhetoric of the genre.
