The Art in Architectural Space in 1991-2001,
a two year project by the Lithuanian Artists Association featured an
exhibition and a conference. The October exhibition hosted by the Arka
Gallery featured photographic material of stained-glass, mosaic,
wall-paintings in different architectural settings, also small-scale
sculpture, ceramic, leather and textile pieces by 76 artists.
Adjacently displayed were recent works by the artists of different
generations. The conference focused on the new situation of the
so-called monumental art (large-scale art integrated into
architectural or public spaces) that depends on state or private
commissions. Alongside, the changing concept of the public space was
discussed and its implications for traditional and post-modern art.
Audrius Novickas was one of the presenters at the conference.
