Art and Heritage in Central Europe

“Wilno, Vilnius, Vilne 1918-1948: One City – Many Stories” Exhibition at the National Museum in Cracow

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

The exhibition shows Vilnius in an exceptionally complicated historical period. We become acquainted with the city thanks to paintings, graphics, photographs and other works of contemporary artists. In the years 1918–1948 Vilnius passed from hand to hand – it became part of Poland and Lithuania and was occupied by both the Nazis and the Soviet army. Occupations and wars radically changed the social structure and population of the city, and also influenced its architecture and urban planning.
The seven-part narrative of the exhibition shows how the artists of the then multi-ethnic and multi-cultural Vilnius perceived their city. Apart from representatives of Polish culture, an important role in creating this image was also played by Lithuanian, Jewish and Belarusian artists.

Curators: Giedrė Jankevičiūtė, Andrzej Szczerski
Coordinators: Ieva Mazūraitė-Novickienė, Katarzyna Pawłowska
Exhibition arrangement design: Magdalena Bujak

The exhibition is open from 24.05 to 03.09.2023.
