Private Screening + Art Talk: Intuitions & Doubts
Time & Location
About The Event
The owner of the Contour Art Gallery Vilma Mačianskaitė invites Rotary Club members to a private screening of the gallery‘s art exhibition documentary, for the interview with movie director Witold Leon Łowczyk and conversations about ART
The gallery, which will be celebrating its 5th anniversary this summer, organised a group exhibition "Intuitions and Doubts" showcasing the works by seven represented artists. The exhibition was installed in the restored premises of the former Svistapolė manor (1817), in Subačiaus str. 85, Vilnius during the quarantine and it will last till the 21st of March (or longer, depending on the quarantine restrictions). This is the first group exhibition which includes all the artists represented by this gallery. Some of them are winners of the Lithuanian National Prize for Culture and Arts, others were awarded by Lithuanian Government for their merits for Arts and Culture, two of them were selected as best artists of the Art Vilnius Fair (2013 and 2014) and two – emerging artists from young generation.
Taking this unique opportunity to bring together such strong and different artists in one exhibition, the gallery invited emerging movie director Witold Leon Łowczyk to create a documentary of this exhibition. Witold‘s idea was to involve the artists themselves to this movie by asking them what role intuitions and doubts play in their creation.
During our meeting on Wednesday, you will be the first to see the art movie (8 m.) created by Witold Leon Łowczyk and his colleague from Italy - camera men Francesco Rufini. We will talk with you about the artists, the exhibition and the challenges of such projects. Those who register for this meeting will be personally invited to visit the exhibition as soon as the quarantine conditions allow guided by the curator of the exhibition Viltė Visockaitė.
Intuitions and Doubts
With the help of both works of art and their descriptions, this exhibition seeks to make sense
of intuitions and doubts which function on the basis of perception. Doubts prompt us to constantly check not only the environment around us, but also our distinctive perception of the world. Intuition, meanwhile, manifests itself in a play of mind and imagination, where the worlds of human creation and values are revealed. By indirectly shaping human behavior and way of thinking, both of them allow us to feel all that is important and meaningful.
