Project description:

The project "Show Windows towards Brīvības Street" looks back at the history of Brīvības iela from 1914 to the present day, reminding the passers-by of the different names the street has had and what political powers have played with the main street of Riga. Eight popular shop windows along the street will become enthralling reflections of history, going beyond the customary boundaries of artistic expression usually found in an exhibition hall, in order to bring art closer to the public.
