Eight artists from different fields, participants of the international project "Making of..!", transformed the Aartists‘ Association Gallery in Vilnius (Vokiečių str. 2) into a creative laboratory/studio from 29 September to 7 October. During this time, the artists and thre VAA Graphic Art 4th year students have been creating new works by sharing a common space with each other and processes with the audience. It was a wonderful coincidence that during the „Art After Hours“ event the opening of the exhibition took place with the participation of all artists.

Project is supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike), Vilnius Academy of Atrs, Lithuanian Artists‘ Association


Making of..! is an international multidisciplinary and participatory art event. What happens when artists work in the same space, for six days without any prior planning, interacting with each other and with the audience? Making of..! is an immersion into an open collective creative process, which poses the question: What kind of world do we want to create together? Making of..! is the new normal: an artistic collaboration that is fully improvised, spontaneous and community-oriented. Making of..! rediscovers contemporary art in the sense that art is never ready, never final, it is constantly evolving and changing, just like life itself.
