Exhibition of the Panevėžys International Photography Biennial „Man and the City“ at the Photography Gallery and the Laisvės Square

The first photography biennial in Panevėžys was organised in 2005, the second – in 2011. We would like to continue this event and kindly invite the Lithuanian and foreign professional photography artists to take part in the Photography Biennial in Panevėžys. We are looking forward to making this event a traditional one.

This year the theme of Panevėžys International Photography Biennial (05-06-2013 to 26-06-2013) is „Man and the City“. The event will comprise not only exhibitions, but also the photography art creative workshop, lectures, discussions and practical activities.

Twelve professional photography artists from Panevėžys, other cities of Lithuania, and foreign countries will be invited to take part in the event: Algimantas Aleksandravičius (Lithuania), Milda Butkevičiūtė (Lithuania), Andrejs Grants (Latvia), Krzysztof Hejke (Poland), Evaldas Ivanauskas (Lithuania), Witold Jurkiewicz (Poland), Stasys Povilaitis (Lithuania), Romualdas Požerskis (Lithuania), Saulius Saladūnas (Lithuania), Alexandra Soldatova (Belarus), Marija Šileikaitė-Čičirkienė (Lithuania), and Stanislovas Žvirgždas (Lithuania), the Guest of honour.

The photography artists will be upgrading their artistic skills during the workshop (05-06-2013 to 09-06-2013) organised in the course the Biennial. Morning-to-lunch the members of the creative workshop will be taking pictures of the city and its people, and after lunch there will be lectures, discussions and practical activities at the Panevėžys Civic Art Gallery. Reports on the theme „Man and the City“ will be delivered by the well-known photography lecturers and photography art writers, such as Algimantas Aleksandravičius (Lithuania), Andrejs Grants (Latvia), Krzysztof Hejke (Poland), Witold Jurkiewicz (Poland), dr. Zita Pikelytė (Lithuania), Romualdas Požerskis (Lithuania), and Stanislovas Žvirgždas (Lithuania). All participants of the workshop will be provided a possibility to present their creation and discussions are expected to take place afterwards. Photography art problems will be discussed, and sharing of experience and information materials between local and foreign photographers will take place. Lectures, presentations of creation and discussions will be open to photographers from all over Lithuania and especially young artists would be welcome.

The photography workshop of the Panevėžys International Photography Biennial will conclude with the photography exhibition to be opened at the Photography Gallery (4 photographs by every artist) and in the Laisvės Square (1-2 photographs by every artist displayed in the windows facing the square). The participants of the biennial will give the photos of the exhibition to the Panevėžys Civic Art Gallery, a municipality supported institution, as a gift. Those photographs will enlarge the photography art collection of the Panevėžys Civic Art Gallery.
