A word from the curators:

Mara Alves: ‘This will be not only a great opportunity for the artists to show their works but also to the viewers that will have the chance to see on site the potential that so well conveys the development of Lithuania culture to the present-day. I commend Valius Naureckas and Vida Naureckaite for this fantastic project. ‘

Barry Martin: ‘ It is always of great interest to see contemporary works of professional artists from abroad. However, we often see art works in London from the USA , South America and from countries in the European Union who are close to the British Isles. and this is where this exhibition is different, as it brings 10 contemporary artists from a country that is not often given a platform in London and showcases the wide variety of art it has to offer . I look forward with great expectation to this exhibition.’
