ArtVilnius’21 Art Fair Photostory

The 12th edition of ArtVilnius art fair took place between October 15 and October 17, 2021 at the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Center LITEXPO in Vilnius, once again giving the opportunity to immerse in the world of art. Both the artists and the organizers managed to create an amazing experience that not only let the viewer discover the unknown but also established the position of eastern contemporary art. ArtVilnius art fair, being one of the fairs that came back to a live format, also gave participants a chance of virtual participation in the event. 

Each year, the ArtVilnius fair focuses on a single highlight; this year, the event deepens the paper factor. 

One of the most important highlights of ArtVilnius’21 are the works of contemporary art on paper, including drawings, collages, graphics, objects, etc. For years, drawings and works of art on paper have occupied an important place in the global art market, and there have even been separate fairs organised for them. This is not a specific or exclusive theme. Paper is a medium used by almost every artist. Of course, as every year, there will be all media presented at the fair: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installations, and more. ”, says Diana Stomienė, ArtVilnius Director.
