22 March – 28 April: Spring Exhibition 2019
- 19 March 2019
The Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania would like to invite you to Spring Exhibition 2019, which will present works of students from the Department of Sculpture at the Vilnius Academy of Arts (VAA). The reference point for this exhibition is the annual open critique and review sessions of the Department of Sculpture, which allow audiences to see student works from all years in one space. Based on the model of those review sessions, the artworks on display at this exhibition are not limited by selection criteria such as year, theme or artistic direction. Curated with the students of the VAA Department of Sculpture, the Spring Exhibition 2019 provides an opportunity to see the works of fifteen authors that are distinctive for the consistent creative approach, ideas and aesthetic execution. In addition to this, the exhibition also shines a light on the collaboration between two educational institutions, revealing not only their ways of operating, but also what is fated to be unseen. In a certain sense, the situation of this exhibition is akin to a geological map, a diagram of a cross-section of the earth’s crust showing the uncovered geological layers and indicating what maybe lies beneath the surface.
