New art album "What Took You So Long"
What started as a small project in Lithuanian media "A Room of One's Own" dedicated to female artists is now a book! The art album "What Took You So Long" presents artworks by Lithuanian and international women artists and 42 interpretations of their works that were written by art critics: compiler Monika Krikštopaitytė, text authors Francesca Ferrarini, Aistė Kisarauskaitė, Laima Kreivytė, Agnė Narušytė, Birutė Pankūnaitė, Aistė Paulina Virbickaitė, Kristina Stančienė ir Rasa Žukienė. The texts (both in Lithuanian and English) presented next to the artworks is meant to introduce the readers to the artists and to demonstrate a peculiar (but not the only possible) approach to a particular piece of art. The second part of the publication includes an exhaustive catalogue of the entire collection (with some exceptions) of female artwork owned by the Lewben Art Foundation.
