Collection: Modern Lithuanian Art from the ARS movement | EXHIBITION

In 1932, the Lithuanian artists' group ARS was founded in Kaunas, and its Manifesto was published.

The goal of the initiators (A. Gudaitis, J. Mikėnas, A. Samuolis, V. Vizgirda) was to bring together the strongest forces of Lithuanian modern art and to actively establish its position through their activities. The members of ARS aimed to create a distinctive Lithuanian art style based on the achievements of modern art in the early 20th century and creatively developed folk art traditions. The work of ARS members marked the beginning of the renewal of Lithuanian art in the 20th century and served as the basis for its further development.

At the Tumo Gallery, located at Užupio St. 19, the exhibition "Modern Lithuanian Art from the ARS" showcases the works of ARS founders Antanas Gudaitis and Viktoras Vizgirda, their colleagues A. Galdikas, V. K. Jonynas, as well as followers and students A. Martinaitytė, R. P. Vaitiekūnas, H. Natalevičius, V. Ignas, S. Džiaukštas, L. Surgailis, V. Petravičius, V. Dombrovskis.
