The artist talk with Andrew Miksys accompanies the selling exhibition of photo books published in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
Miksys is a photographic artist born in Seattle, USA. In 1995, he first visited Vilnius, Lithuania, which now has been his home for 15 years. His book, DISKO, was self-published in 2013. It documents young Lithuanians partying in village discos. The book received wide international acclaim, but also sparked debates in the Lithuanian press on national identity.
Miksys will talk about his projects in Lithuania and Belarus and discuss the background behind his forays into publishing. After the talk, the artist will be happy to sign books bought at the fair.
This event takes place in English.
