ARTVILNIUS'16

ARTVILNIUS’16 – Seventh Contemporary Art Fair

Date: 9-12 June, 2016
Place: Litexpo, Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre (Laisvės av. 5, Vilnius)

Poland – Special Guest

International contemporary art fair ArtVilnius’16 attracted the participation of 60 galleries from 12 countries (Belgium, Germany, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus, the Netherlands, Russia, Italy, and France). The guest country was Poland. During the four days of ArtVilnius’16, Exhibition and Congress Centre Litexpo was proud to meet 21 thousand visitors; about 200 works of art were sold for more than 260 thousand euro.  Attention to ArtVilnius’16 was paid by foreign ambassadors who visited the events of the art fair. Presentation of the latest collection of the Lewben Art Foundation organised by the exclusive partner of ArtVilnius’16, Lewben Group, was proud to meet many representatives of business and art elite.

About 200 works of art were sold for more than 260 thousand euro. According to Mrs. Diana Stomienė, director of ArtVilnius’16, the statistical figures for artworks sold at the art fair are not precise.

“Not necessarily all art sales should be completed during the art fair; many transactions are finalised after the fair. Art lovers and collectors often contact authors during the art fair, apply to experts for advice, look around, make bookings and purchase the works they liked later. Such transactions fall beyond our records, but we know they have to do with the art fair”, says Mrs. Stomienė.
