VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE EXHIBITION "A DIFFICULT AGE: SZAPOCZNIKOW – WAJDA – WROBLEWSKI"

This exhibition is the largest and most ambitious MO Museum project to date, involving 25 foreign museums, galleries and private collections. About 120 works will be on display from 5 different countries.

“A Difficult Age. Szapocznikow – Wajda – Wróblewski” presents the work of Poland’s most prominent and widely acclaimed post-war artists: film director Andrzej Wajda (1926–2016), conceptual sculptor Alina Szapocznikow (1926–1973), and painter Andrzej Wróblewski (1927–1957). The exhibit’s main theme is an exploration of the adolescent experiences endured by these three artists – all born in the same period and all having lost a parent early in life – and the impact of these events on their work.

The curator of the exhibition, the legendary Polish art historian and curator Anda Rottenberg, reveals how the same symbols and metaphors repeat themselves in different areas of art: painting, cinema, and sculpture.

VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE EXHIBITION "A DIFFICULT AGE: VILNIUS, 1939–1949"

The exhibition „A Difficult Age: Vilnius, 1939–1949” presents an important narrative, recreates a broken connection and presents the context of the Vilnius era allowing us to take a deeper look at this dramatic decade of Vilnius.

This exploration of the city’s dramatic history begins with a brief look at a peaceful, prewar Vilnius with its optimistic visions of a multiethnic modern city and a nostalgic picture of its past glory. Our main focus is nevertheless devoted to the wounds of war and their enduring scars, to all that has been lost and to the deep longing felt by Vilnius’ older inhabitants – those who have remained and those who were forced to leave.

VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE EXHIBITION "WHY IS IT HARD TO LOVE?"

We invite you to a virtual tour of the exhibition “Why is It Hard to Love?” curated by Dutch multimedia artist Saskia Boddeke and one of the most distinctly original and important film directors of our time, Peter Greenaway. The exhibition becomes a work of art itself as Greenaway and Boddeke presents site-specific immersive installations in relation to the highlights of Lithuanian contemporary art from the MO Museum and other collections.

Why Is It Hard to Love? is a story of how we, as humans, strive for equilibrium in life by arranging the good and the bad, eliminating differences between the poor and the rich as well as the unsatisfactory inequalities between men and women, the antagonism between the young and the old, the friction between the races. The works by some of the most prominent Lithuanian artists are also exhibited and thus a local narrative of violent historical circumstances, occupations and liberations and drastic social changes emerges.

The exhibition is like a movie

Exhibition “Why Is It Hard to Love?” very cinematic. All the elements are important: light, sound, image, even a rain installation. Of course, we cannot convey all the elements of light and sound in this tour, but the works in the exhibition are purposefully captured in the original exhibition lighting. So, don’t be surprised that the lighting may change and some of the creations may be reflected.

Also, don’t miss the main video installation, the story of Susa Bubble that was inspired by the artist’s daughter Pip. You will find the video story in a virtual tour in the room in front of the spiral staircase of the MO Museum.

In the blue markers of the exhibition tour, you will find descriptions of the works in Lithuanian, in the red ones – In English, and in the green ones – visual material.
