Justina Gražytė, the Head of the VAA gallery Artifex in Vilnius, LT invites to apply for the following call:
INFORMATION FOR EXHIBITORS
We give priority to textile art (fiber art) and design exhibition contributions from the artists from Lithuania and from abroad! Also the guiding object at the core of the gallery’s focus lays materiality in all its reflexive and physical forms. It welcomes projects that engage in the topic in a variety of ways: from sound to cloth, from object to text, from thought to action. Thus, Artifex seeks the re-discovery of textile under new and creative terms and in unexpected and ever-changing circumstances.
The applications for the exhibitions to be held in 2022 (April-December, 2022) are expected until the 14th of November, 2021 (we will announce our decision on November 30th, 2021).
Until November 30th, 2021 applications will be selected by the gallery selection committee and we will answer to everyone by email.
