Artistic Exchange: Several Thoughts about Residence Programmes
by Ieva Dilytė
projects are carried out by several artistic institutions in Lithuania:
the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC), the Lithuanian Artists Union (LAU),
the Contemporary Art Information Centre (CAIC) and cultural centres
of foreign countries in Lithuania.
The routes of artists residencies most often stretch towards the Nordic
countries. The Nordic Institute for Contemporary Art (NIFCA) collaborates
with the Lithuanian Artists Union, which has been included in the network
of programmes of artists residencies. Many artists, not necessarily
members of the Lithuanian Artists Union, have participated in residencies
organized in the NIFCA-administrated studies. This residence programme
supports professional artists from the Nordic and Baltic countries.
Artists from the Nordic countries regularly visit the studio of this
network curated by the Lithuanian Artists Union in Vilnius.
The International Fund of Cultural Support UNESCOASCHBERG provides
the geographically widest programme of grants for artists. The largest
Lithuanian artistic institutions participate in the process of international
artistic exchange by organizing and supporting international projects,
spreading information about residence programmes and funds (CICA, CAC,
LAU) and curating artists residencies (LAU).
