You are kindly invited to the opening of Sandra Strēle - Exhibitions That Did Not Happen on the 9th of July at 6pm in Meno Parkas Gallery (Rotušės a. 27, Kaunas).
Painting series presented at Meno Parkas Gallery is dedicated on the exhibition or project ideas that did not happen or won’t happen.
"Every artist during his or her lifetime has millions of ideas he or she would like to realize. Because of the lack of time, political situations such as Covid 19 crisis, economic crisis etc., personal reasons, lack of exhibition spaces, success and funding, and different other circumstances, artists during their lifetime make only a limited amount of solo exhibitions. In this series I will paint the ideas and concepts of my own I would like to realize, playing with different known and unknown exhibition spaces, galleries and museums and painting my solo exhibition views"-Sandra Strēle.
