It is the fourth time this June when the International Contemporary Art Fair ARTVILNIUSí13 is inviting all art lovers, collectors, artists, and visitors. This is the biggest visual arts event ever held in Baltic countries over the past 20 years: every year the art fair is visited by more than 18,000 people from all over the world. The art fair will present 50 most prominent art galleries from Lithuania and foreign countries (Portugal, Latvia, France, Poland, the Ukraine, Byelorussia, Denmark, Italy, etc.) in the area of 12,000 m≤ hosted at the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre LITEXPO. The visitors will have an opportunity to see works of more than 500 artists and more than 2,000 latest art works displayed by their representative galleries.
ARTVILNIUSí13 is a multidimensional event. In addition to paintings, graphics and sculptures presented by the authors from all over the world, restless visitors and those willing to know more about art will also find satisfaction. The spaces of the art fair will shelter a large-sized exhibition of sculptures, exhibitions of objects and installations TAKAS (THE PATH); children, young and adult visitors will be invited to attend educational programmes, relevant podium discussions, lectures, to enjoy films and video art programmes, performances and various campaigns, to meet artists and enjoy guided exhibition tours, etc.
ARTVILNIUS is a very important and great event for the whole professional art community in Lithuania: for galleries, authors, and collectors. The visitors will have an opportunity to feel the pulse of art without getting on a plane or car. In a certain sense, it is the art bridge between East and West, between the artist and the buyer.
