ATMINTIS IR PĖDSAKAI / TRACES AND REMEMBRANCE
ARKA Gallery (Vilnius, Lithuania). Curator and artist participant
Kvadrenale Q14 (Vilnius , Lithuania )
In November-December, a selection of original art created by members of the Lithuanian Artists’ Association and other professional artists, as well as from the funds of the Lithuanian Expatriate Art Foundation and the Lewben Art Foundation, will be exhibited at the Artillery Bastion of Vilnius Defensive Wall (Bokšto St. 20/18), which is part of the National Museum of Lithuania.
After a five-year-long renovation the Bastion of Vilnius is becoming a new art venue – the latest works by contemporary artists will be exhibited within the historic walls of the Bastion for the first time after the reconstruction. The first event to take place in the renewed bastion is connected to primary purpose of a bastion – to store weapons. Only this time the weapons are those of spiritual creation, and they are aimed at political inertia and conformism, cultural routine, social indifference, and boredom! (Q14)
