Darius Mikšys. Už baltos užuolaidos / Behind the White Curtain

Catalogue of the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale

This book serves as a catalogue for a temporary art collection comprising works by artists who received stipends from the Lithuanian state between 1992 and 2010. Over 300 artists were recipients of these awards; 173 of which accepted the invitation to contribute to this collection. While the pages of this book are organised alphabetically by artist’s name, the content is also indexed chronologically in relation to the title and year of each work. Each artist was asked to suggest an artwork for inclusion that they made from around the time the stipend was received. To preserve their autonomy, each artist has been given a double page spread in the catalogue.
