10th International Triennial of Small Graphic Forms VILNIUS 2020

The International Triennial of Small Graphic Forms in Vilnius has been held since 1994 and this year marks the contest’s 10th holding. The fact that the Triennial retains its relevance, attracts numerous authors from a variety of countries, enjoys a loyal circle of old-timers and simultaneously lures emerging young artists to try their hand at it clearly shows how significant, trusted, competent and admired this event is in the world of graphic art.

This year’s exhibition features works by 81 creators from 19 countries around the world, notably Sweden, Poland, Japan and Belgium. Of course, Lithuanian creators are also actively participating in the event. The exhibition is proud to present a variety of techniques, genres and styles, ranging from figurative to abstract, expressive to minimalist, illustrative to conceptual, fantastic to artistic classics and from dramatic to comical motifs. This great variety is neatly summed up by dominant variant motifs of the human image. The broad spectrum illustrates both the relevance of the traditional, as well as the novel arts and highlights the importance of experimentation and technical conceptualization.

The colorful landscape of the triennial promises not only an exceptional acquaintanceship with small graphic forms, but also provides enriching artistic content for a broad audience. Audiences will be pleased to uncover and / or to reconnect with favorite genres, styles and stories.
