The 3 rd Vilnius Gallery Weekend invites you to turn up the contemporary art’s volume

2018/08/13

Vilnius Gallery Weekend launches a new contemporary art exhibition season in the
capital city this fall. The events – new exhibitions openings, meetings with artists,
concerts and discussions – will be happening around town as well as on its outskirts
from the 6 th to the 9 th of September in overall 27 different galleries and other artistic
venues.
Organized by Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists Association for the third time, the
gallery weekend will be drawing attention to the wide panorama of the contemporary
art scene in Lithuania’s capital. One of the main aims of the event is to form a route of
the most interesting artistic venues to visit, which would hopefully become an art-
seeker’s habit after the weekend has ended.
This year the weekend’s events will happen not only in the central galleries, but also
farther away to the East and the West of Vilnius. For the second time Lentvaris
railway station building complex will be hosting a young artists exhibition designed
particularly for the occasion. Meanwhile, EMPTY BRAIN RESORT (International music
cultural centre) in Naujoji Vilnia district will be inviting the visitors to meet the
organizers and see its spaces for the first time before the official opening later in fall.
Vilnius Gallery Weekend devotes a lot of attention to sound this year. Not only by
including new artistic spaces designated for musicians and their pieces or organizing
an exhibition in Composers’ House building, but also by inviting visitors into a
discussion about making art sound louder and heard better. By asking about the ways
of advertising contemporary art, its communication, the renowned and the less known
artists, the event seeks to contemplate its own goals of popularizing contemporary art,
its processes and its creators.

Project is partly funded by Lithuanian Council for Culture, Ministry of Culture of the
Republic of Lithuania and Vilnius City Municipality

All events are free
