GIANTS. SOUVENIRS : exhibition in the gallery "Akademija"

In 2013 a small resort town Sierre in the Swiss Alps turned into the place which artists Arūnas Gudaitis, Juozas Laivys, Konstantinas Bogdanas, Laura Stasiulytė, Petra Köhle together with Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin and Sarah Hendrickx visited, where they passed each other or desired to be in. They knew about one another and now they even could have some things or thoughts belonging to the ones they have not met. In different ways and through different experiences this space created circumstances for artists to act and to give effect to the meeting/exhibition as a traveller-giant-souvenir a year later in Vilnius.

arXYZoom: contemporary architecture and urbanism research workshop

It's been some time now that the boundaries of contemporary architecture and urbanism research and creative practice have been expanding if compared with the approaches and views of the twentieth century. Despite this, in the field of Lithuanian architectural and city research the current tendencies and practices are little known and narrowly applied.
Thus, with the goal of broadening the field of research methods and approaches and experimental artistic practices, Architecture department of Vilnius Academy of Arts has initiated a yearly seminar & workshop "ArXYZoom". During a week long event scientists, artistic research specialists as well as practitioners of experimental - interdisciplinary artistic research methods will share their methods and practices with the MA and PhD students, young researchers and educators from the field of architecture.
The lectures will be presented by lecturers Benjamin Cope and Miodrag Kuc. The event is curated by Tomas Grunskis. You can find the preliminary plan of the week here.
The event is organized and supported by the Vilnius Academy of Arts and Research Council of Lithuania. Lectures and seminars will take place in Nida Art Colony of VAA from the 13th to 20ht of October 2014.
