Private view of the exhibition "Collecting Hits" for Tate REEAC

Chairman of the Board of the Lewben Art Foundation Vilius Kavaliauskas hosted the welcome evening for Committee members in Vilnius which included private view of the exhibition Collecting Hits and welcome dinner.

Vilius Kavaliauskas became a member of the Tate Russian and Eastern European Acquisitions Committee in 2014, a position which, as he says, is a great opportunity to popularize Lithuanian art around the world.

Painting from the collection of the Lewben Art Foundation is included in the permanent exhibition of the National Gallery of Art Exhibitions by Claire Tabouret at Festival d'Avignon
