JCDecaux prize: Not at Someone's Request
Curators: Monika Kalinauskaitė and Adomas Narkevičius
September 20 — November 30, 2019
Opening: September 20, 6pm

There was a certain point when something that was neither vitally nor economically necessary arose; and today, we still carry on fostering this impulse that can liberate us from destiny and external will, letting us expose our own naivety and weakness in the pursuit of the incalculable. This story is written by disobedient and shaky hands – not at someone's request, but for the sake of what might be important.

''JCDecaux Prize'' is a cycle of yearly exhibitions established in 2016 by the Contemporary Art Centre and ''JCDecaux'', aiming to encourage young Lithuanian artists to create new works, facilitate their presentation in Lithuania and abroad as well as bring contemporary art to a wider audience and the general public. The five artists participating in the JCDecaux Prize exhibition have been selected through an open call. The winner will be awarded a prize of 4000 Euros, courtesy of ''JCDecaux''.
