2021 Art After Hour festival will take place on , Friday
Art After Hours is a gallery festival for night owls taking place on Friday, October 15, during which selected Vilnius city galleries, art institutions, and art spaces will open their doors to visitors until late in the evening and will organize additional events: meetings with artists and gallerists, tours of exhibitions, and performances. Admission to the participating galleries and events is free.
The date and concept of the event were coordinated with the date of the contemporary art fair ArtVilnius’21 (October 15-17), when Vilnius will be full of representatives of galleries, collectors, art critics, and journalists from foreign countries, who publicize cultural content in foreign media and promote Lithuania to the world.
The organizers of Art After Hours follow the example of foreign art fairs in Vienna, Paris, Berlin, and others, where large-scale parallel events are organized in addition to fairs, and local art galleries open their doors until later so that visitors could take part not only in art fairs but also in events taking place in the city.
