Graphic Art deparment participation  in ArtVilnius Art Fair 2014

2014 June 18-21 The Baltic largest contemporary art fair ARTVILNIUS’14 was for the fifth time hosted by the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre LITEXPO in Vilnius. This year the art fair was proud to present a considerably greater number of participants: 65 galleries from 18 countries of the world (as compared to 50 galleries from 11 countries participating last year). Throughout the five days of the fair, gallerists, artists and collectors were not only enthusiastically exchanging their contact information, establishing new contacts and planning joint projects for the future, but also actively engaged in sales.

In the art fair under the Vilnius Children and Youth Art galleries exposition stand name collegially curated project, preliminary called Relocation, works presented VAA Graphic department lecturer Marija Marcelionyte-Paliukė and students Milda Dainovskytė, Vytenis Tolutis, Jurgis Bernatonis, Sculpture dep. student Mykolas Sauka and Design dep. student Rapolas Gražys. During the fair VAA students conducted 14 workshops and educational activities for young fair visitors, and those who are interested in the arts and just for the very beginners. These activities have become especially relevant because, according to the organizers <...> The significant increase in the number of participating galleries and visitors is the evidence of the growing role of art fair in the Lithuanian cultural life, of Vilnius gradually, but insistently, anchoring on the international map of art fairs, and of the art fair assuming its unique face. More and more people are ready to let art in! And this is the basic aim of the art fair <...>

ArtVilnius Art Fair - a great opportunity to further young artists to check their ovne topics and issues from the inside, to play in a large contemporary art playground, which is no longer as simple and safe as in the classroom, because experience shows that as early as possible you ran in to the playground - the more professional player you can become. Or - you realize that this is not for you. And well, just it will save your life.
