Opening of exhibition ‘Words aren’t the thing’
Exhibition ‘Words aren’t the thing’ opens at the Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius on Friday 13 November 2015 at 6 pm. The artist collective D.O.R. is commissioned to inaugurate the exhibition and give an in-depth analysis on the conceptual gravitation points of the de-lingualised situation that inhabits the space between the word and the thing, and how this brutally dis-communicates thought.

Artists: Øyvind Aspen, Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys, Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel, D.O.R., Kipras Dubauskas, Lili Dujourie, Laurent Dupont, Mai Hofstad Gunnes, Hannah Heilmann, Anders Holen, E.B. Itso, Kalin Lindena, Maria Loboda, Valérie Mannaerts, NUG, Michael Van den Abeele
