Exhibition "Blind Date"

Exhibition "Blind Date" is mainly dedicated to people with visual impairment seeking to enhance their knowledge of Lithuanian national art heritage and at the same time develop personal artistic proficiency to experience visual art differently through the sense of touch.

"Blind date" presents original paintings and their tactile reproductions handmade by sculptors Jonas Aničas and Matas Janušonis with assistance from the Lithuanian Association of the Blind and Visually Handicapped as well as professionals of tactile art from Italy. The displays of embossed artworks are specifically designed for touching which helps visitors to understand and feel the content of a painting.

Exposition was carefully selected to represent the important changes, art movements and manifestos with significant impact on Lithuaniain painting in the XX century. Traditional genres such as landscape and portrait will be followed by deconstructions, surrealistitic visions and conceptual art. Visitors will be introduced to the social themes of paintings, avant-garde experiments and new ideas or comments on the subject of classical art.
