Art in Architectural Space  

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.
