THE INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR ARTVILNIUS’23
The art fair ArtVilnius’23 took place between October 13–15. This year, the fourteenth edition inhabited the three main halls and outdoor areas of the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre Litexpo, covering 12,000 square meters in total and consisting of 70 art galleries/institutions and 300 artists from 18 countries.
In addition to the main programme of contemporary art galleries, ArtVilnius’23 also presented many other projects. Hall 4 hosted the ArtVilnius Project Zone curated by Valentinas Klimašauskas, showcasing exhibitions of institutions and artists. The sculptures, installations and performances of The Path, an exhibition curated by Vytenis Burokas, featured 16 artists and was on display throughout the entirety of the fair. Every year, ArtVilnius has a certain theme it wishes to highlight and this year’s theme is performativity. The context of the art fair provided an opportunity to look at the concept of performativity openly and creatively, discussing the broadest interpretations of this term. During ArtVilnius’23, an international jury of art professionals and visitors selected the best galleries, artists and works of art.
