Having crossed the threshold of the 21st century, we still have many problems and urgent issues unsolved. Though at the competition of the Open Society Fund we received support for the theme of this issue “The Law of Sponsorship and its Effect in Lithuania”, we found it necessary to expand the range of themes including laws regulating the dispersion of contemporary art and the status of its creators and artworks. It is becoming more and more obvious that the lack of legal basis hinders a normal process of contemporary art. The heading “Theme” was edited by the art critic, program coordinator of the UNESCO Chair of Culture Management and Culture Policy of the Vilnius Art Academy Ieva Kuizinienė.
In this issue we review the exhibitions of the end of 2000 and the first half of 2001, present new works of monumental art and the winners of the national award of culture and art in 2000. Under the heading “One World” we introduce several world exhibitions with the successful participation of Lithuanian artists (the Great Düsseldorf Exhibition, the Tallinn Triennial of Applied Art, the 2nd Berlin Biennial). In 2001 we celebrate the anniversaries of birth of several remarkable Lithuanian artists: the 60th anniversary of Algimantas Švėgžda and the 80th anniversary of Antanas Mončys. Traditionally we present the most beautiful books of 2000 and publish photographs reflecting the rich life of the Lithuanian Artists’ Union.
