The exhibition offers an observation of the way in which art can capture something of the current, contemporary Zeitgeist. It centers on six large-scale murals created in the gallery, alongside works in diverse media by artists of various generations as well as archive photographs. The exhibition is accompanied by discussions with artists about the way in which their art faces current affairs.

The National Gallery of Art presents an exceptional 2016 summer event, the exhibition Positive Images for Field and Forest by the contemporary Israeli artist Sharon Ya'ari. It is one of his biggest personal exhibitions in Europe, and his first in Lithuania.
