THE MAIN DIRECTION OF THE GALLERY // Artifex is a Vilnius Academy of Arts - affiliated gallery in Vilnius, Lithuania, with a focus on contemporary textile (art and design), broadly-interpreted. It frequently features exhibitions by the Academy’s staff and students as well as prominent international artists, collective exhibitions and collaborations. Its intimate 36- square- meter space at the heart of the Vilnius Old Town often hosts cultural events and participates in the public life of the city’s artistic scene.
The guiding object at the core of the gallery’s focus lays materiality in all its reflexive and physical forms. It welcomes projects that engage in the topic in a variety of ways: from sound to cloth, from object to text, from thought to action. Thus, Artifex seeks the re-discovery of textile under new and creative terms and in unexpected and ever-changing circumstances.
