Urban Stories

The X Baltic Triennial of International Art, Vilnius 2009


The Baltic Triennial of International Art being the largest exhibition staged at the Contemporary Art Centre, is launching the tenth edition this December in a series of introductory events featuring stories by the Triennial curators and artists.

'Urban Stories' invites international artists and researchers to leave the habitual and established representations of Vilnius behind. They are invited to live in spaces outside the city centre and to observe the life of Vilnius at the periphery – everyday routes, individual truths, new fictions, the little discrepancies at the fringe, and more. The outcomes of these urban expeditions, encountered ambiences and stories of the residents will be mediated via the circuits of contemporary art through installation, film and video, as well as artistic actions and new media interventions – producing a new complex narrative for Vilnius European Capital of Culture 2009.

The X Baltic Triennial of International Art 'Urban Stories' will open on the 4 September 2009 at the Contemporary Art Centre. Up to its conclusion on 8 November, the main exhibition at the CAC will be accompanied by special events and temporary expositions installed in diverse locations throughout the city.

The intention of this Prologue is to introduce the concept of 'Urban Stories' to the public and to present some of the future Triennial projects.
