Open call for artists for exhibitions at the VAA textile gallery Artifex in 2021! 

Information for exhibitors 

We give priority to textile art (fiber art) and design exhibition contributions from the artists from Lithuania and from abroad! Also the guiding object at the core of the gallery’s focus lays materiality in all its reflexive and physical forms. It welcomes projects that engage in the topic in a variety of ways: from sound to cloth, from object to text, from thought to action. Thus, Artifex seeks the re-discovery of textile under new and creative terms and in unexpected and ever-changing circumstances.


Attention! Сovid-19 slightly adjusted the deadlines for accepting applications. As the exhibition schedule has slightly shifted to the year 2021, applications for 2021 (April-December) exhibitions will be accepted from the 1st of November to the 20th of November. We will answer to everybody until the 20th of December.
