RESIDENCY IN VILNIUS – LITHUANIA

November 2019 from 24 to 27, at the invitation of the Lithuanian Culture Institute

The Study Visits Programme has been operating since 2014. Throughout 2017, the Lithuanian Culture Institute financed and curated over 200 visits from experts in various artistic fields. The fruits of those efforts have been various Lithuanian artists’ exhibitions, performances, concerts and other projects inspired or curated by experts from their respective countries.

‘It is essential for Lithuanian artists to have the opportunity to present their works to foreign experts, curators, and critics. This is why, alongside the “export” of their works, we also organize the “import” of experts, who come for an intensive and concentrated presentation of Lithuanian culture during their visit. They leave with much more than just pleasant memories of their stay: they become broadly acquainted with Lithuanian artists and the panorama of their work’, according to Aušrinė Žilinskienė, Director of the Lithuanian Culture Institute.

Claire Migraine, artistic director of thankyouforcoming, has been part of the program in November 2019.
Thank you Austė Zdančiūtė and Giedrė Malūkaitė for the invitation and the perfect organisation !
