Curator Albinas Vološkevičius. Project X: PA / LIKIMAS
On 28th of November (Wednesday) at 6pm in gallery "Meno parkas" (Rotušės a. 27, Kaunas) will be opening of the project's X: PA / LIKIMAS exhibition. Inviting!
X: PA/LIKIMAS is a project inviting artists to take an artistic look at the history of the 100-year history of Lithuanian independence, its development, the key moments of this period, to identify and highlight the historical events, dates
and achievements of Lithuania which are our legacy and by its significance today determines our own destiny - to be free and independent.
X: PA / LIKIMAS is a continuous project inviting artists from different areas to work in pairs with a single piece of art, thus seeking new artistic expression and experience in the work. The first project X: CRITICAL LIMIT, which took place in 2016, was dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy. Ten out of the 15 invited to participate Panevėžys artists agreed to work in pairs, others worked individually. The result exceeded the expectations – the project attracted the attention of the public and the art community. The entire collection of the project works was donated to Panevėžys city.
Eighteen duo of famous artists from Panevėžys and other Lithuanian cities are participating in the project this year. This time all the creators: painters, graphic artists, photographers, ceramics, sculptors, metal plastics and glass artists, will work in pairs. By sharing a wide range of experiences, schools, techniques, and even combining completely different materials, finding compromise between themselves as creators and different means of expression, artists acquire new creative experiences that can then affect even personal creativity, expression and style at the same time extending the artistic horizons, both in terms of materialism and worldview.
Offering PA / LIKIMO topic, the organizers invite artists to get closer insight on the topical issues of today’s inheritance – the legacy of the Soviet system, emigration of young people from the country, the country’s cultural, artistic and creative heritage. Nevertheless, creators are given full freedom to interpret the topic.
The works are donated to the city of Panevėžys and will augment the already started art collection for the newly created Arts Centre.
