Kaunas Picture Gallery pavilion Gallery without Walls, K. Donelaitis str. 16.

Darius Petrulis and Darius Batulevičius’ photography exhibition depicts the protest action Nemunas Way, organized by the Šančiai Community, and reveals still intact but fragile nature of Nemunas coastline near Šančiai district. The photos are accompanied by meaningful comments of experts and public figures.

On the 27th of April, 700 people joined their hands and formed the Nemunas Way on the shore of the River Nemunas, in the neighborhood of Šančiai. In this action, the community expressed its disagreement with the Nemunas embankment reconstruction project, which intends to build a 3.5 km street for cars between the Railway and the Panemunė bridges irreversibly replacing the most significant part of the district’s natural coastline.

The Nemunas Way has become the first, but not the last, action by which the community expressed its stand against the project that contradicts the principles of sustainable urban development.

We invite you to visit the exhibition at any time of the day in the Gallery without Walls – at the pavilion of Kaunas Picture Gallery. If you want to learn more about the Šančiai Community, listen to the cult opera of the Cabbage Field, you can find everything (and even more) on the third floor of the gallery, at the exhibition The Cut Down City – Transplanted Man.

Organizers of the exhibition: The Community of Lower Šančiai, The Community Platforms of M. K. Čiurlionis National Museum of Art – Backup Stories and Gallery Without Walls.
