    Last summer (August 2013) artist group Cooltūristės was on residency in Nida Art Colony curated residency programme "Critical Tourism". During their stay the artists were working on an artistic research project with a goal to document the invisible life in Neringa. 

    They were knocking on the doors of the locals in order to find out where do the locals go when they rent our their appartments and whole houses to the summer tourists; where do penny-less students and low-income families come for their vacation. Through a photo-camera lense the artists were seeking to understand how these unusual life conditions trigger creativity and what sort of daily rituals are forming in this unseen millieu. 

    The outcome of the project - a photo exhibition - will be presented in "Agila" culture and tourist information center (Taikos g.4) on the 11th of August, and will run up to the 1st of September. All are welcome to the opening at 19.00 on the 11th of August.

    Deadline for the artist fellowship program "Art in a Social Context" is Sept.17, 2014

    "Counterhegemony: Art in a Social Context" is a 7 week Artist Fellowship Program at NIDA Art Colony that looks at genealogy, or the epistemic context within which bodies of knowledge become intelligible and authoritative, as a point of departure in art production. It is aimed at any art or cultural production that exists within or in reference to social forms of resistance that coalesce in opposition to hegemonic structures.

    We often assume art and science to be far from each other, oftentimes - as rivals. But more often than not science- and pseudo-theories, which were thought to be valid, are denied and the way we perceive the world changes. During the "Migrating Art Academies" workshop young artists will immerse themselves into scientific and social facts approved as valid or denied, and will work on concepts of the real and the imaginable. 

    All interested are welcome to attend public lectures:

    Tuesday, the 2nd of September
    10:00 – 13:00 Ian Damerell. Lecture: Seeing Things Through Things

    Thursday, the 4th of September

    (non)Science at Nida Art Colony

    Science and art are usually considered as quite distant from each other, or even slightly contradicting each other. However often some scientific and other pseudo-theories get replaced by new ideas which make one perceive the world differently. During Migrating Art Academies' creative workshop emerging artists will be encouraged to creatively explore acknowledged as well as rejected scientific facts and to reconsider notions of reality and imagination. Public lectures in Nida are open to everyone interested.

    „In creative workshop „The Sun Had Exploded Before We Found Out It Would“ thinking direction is suggested but no limit to themes is set. And these are the issues of artistic motivation in the presence of fragility of being. The old truth that science is just one of the possible ways of constructing reality can inspire contemporary artists as it allows their imagination to play main role in the process of perception“ - says Vilnius Art Academy professor Artūras Raila on the creative laboratory. During this workshop various (non)scientific resources will be analysed, f.e. NASA archive which is open for public, also internet stories on aliens and mermaids.

    The laboratory starts on the 2nd of September with a lecture by the writer, philosopher and lecturer at University of Oslo Ian Damerell. His public lecture will discuss stereotypes of thinking and inertness of perception. Contemporary art practitioner Alan Smith from UK (Allenheads Contemporary Arts) who works with posibilities of telepathy and perception of thought as an electromagnetic impulse will talk on how contemporary artists present their practices with the help of various contexts. Artist and curator Mindaugas Gapševičius will tell about his projects balancing between science (like astronomy and neurosciences) and art. In his lecture Artūras Raila will raise questions on reliability of information and trust.

    Having introduced themselves to theoretical and practical insights emerging artists will develop their own projects which will later be presented to public at the end of this creative laboratory on the 13th of September at Nida Art Colony.

    The Migrating Art Academies (MigAA) platform is aimed at innovation and experience exchange in art teaching and research. It is a network of European universities and independent organisations. The laboratory „The Sun Had Exploded Before We Found Out It Would” is supported by the European Commission Culture Program, Lithuanian Council For Culture and the Nordic Culture Point. This laboratory is organised as a collaboration between Vilnius Academy of Arts and Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists’ Association.

    All interested are welcome to attend public lectures:

    Tuesday, the 2nd of September
    10:00 – 13:00 Ian Damerell. Lecture: Seeing Things Through Things

    Thursday, the 4th of September
    10:00 – 11:00 Arturas Raila. Lecture: Primitive Sky
    11:30 – 13:00 Mindaugas Gapševičius. Lecture: At the edge of arts and sciences

    It's been some time now that the boundaries of contemporary architecture and urbanism research and creative practice have been expanding if compared with the approaches and views of the twentieth century. Despite this, in the field of Lithuanian architectural and city research the current tendencies and practices are little known and narrowly applied.
    Thus, with the goal of broadening the field of research methods and approaches and experimental artistic practices, Architecture department of Vilnius Academy of Arts has initiated a yearly seminar & workshop "ArXYZoom". During a week long event scientists, artistic research specialists as well as practitioners of experimental - interdisciplinary artistic research methods will share their methods and practices with the MA and PhD students, young researchers and educators from the field of architecture.
    The lectures will be presented by lecturers Benjamin Cope and Miodrag Kuc. The event is curated by Tomas Grunskis. You can find the preliminary plan of the week here.
    The event is organized and supported by the Vilnius Academy of Arts and Research Council of Lithuania. Lectures and seminars will take place in Nida Art Colony of VAA from the 13th to 20ht of October 2014.

  • 10/14/14--23:29: Nida A-I-R in October
  • In the beginning of October a new guest has arrived to Nida Art Colony – French artist Alice Pamuk.

    AlicePamuk

    Alice Pamuk's work is of a delicate and imperceptible kind. It is often encountered through performance, sound installations and writing but mostly through a form of translation of language and it's experience. Finding within the realm of physical experiences the formal impossibility is often transmuted by a simple twist of imagination. The acute transformed experience albeit simple and uncanny often triggers a paradox between the humorous and the conceptual.
    During her residency at Nida, Alice Pamuk will be researching empirical ways to achieve high sound quality. She noticed that when you dig into what high sound quality is, concepts of wealth and poorness are strangely imbricated. By inventing new ways to realize a sophisticated and aseptic sound, she will question the listening standards through which our audio world is mediated.

    In 2013 a small resort town Sierre in the Swiss Alps turned into the place which artists Arūnas Gudaitis, Juozas Laivys, Konstantinas Bogdanas, Laura Stasiulytė, Petra Köhle together with Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin and Sarah Hendrickx visited, where they passed each other or desired to be in. They knew about one another and now they even could have some things or thoughts belonging to the ones they have not met. In different ways and through different experiences this space created circumstances for artists to act and to give effect to the meeting/exhibition as a traveller-giant-souvenir a year later in Vilnius.
