The International Exhibition of Contemporary Painting of the 16th Vilnius Painting Triennial ‘Nomadic Images’
25.11.2016 – 31.12.2016
Museum of Applied Art and Design in Vilnius, Lithuania
The curated international exhibition of the 16th Vilnius Painting Triennial ‘Nomadic Images’, organised by the Lithuanian Artists’ Association, where invited artists from Lithuania and other European countries are presented, will show from 24 November to 31 December in the Museum of Applied Art and Design in Vilnius (Arsenalo St 3A).
The triennial’s organisers adapt the wandering world vision articulated by the contemporary thinkers Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, in which reality is constantly changing, and is described using notions of the rhizome and the labyrinth, to the field of contemporary painting. In this way, we can understand forms of expression as a potential infinity that can take various configurations, grow freely, and develop in any direction. A conceptual approach towards the triennial’s content allows us to avoid a horizontal view of the field of painting, like an overview, and gives it an intellectual dynamic. Innovation in painting, and changes in forms of representation, format and materials, are emphasised, together with connections with other media and other fields of art.
The works will be shown in a structure like a labyrinth, proposing infinite possible associative combinations and ways of seeing the European painting scene. The show is curated by Linas Liandzbergis.
