I’m a Curator, Art Historian and Art Advisor based in Vilnius. I currently serve as a Board Member at Rupert, a centre for Art & Education in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I worked as a Director for 6 years. I am also a Board Member at the Lithuanian Culture Institute and ArtVilnius. I hold an M.A. in History of Art from the University of St Andrews, Scotland and have previously worked in curatorial departments at Tate Modern (London) and Jonas Mekas Foundation (New York), as well as curated independent projects in Iceland, Latvia, Belgium, Norway and elsewhere.
During my 15-year career in the arts, I have helped many artists and gallerists launch international careers and implement ambitious large-scale projects. I have also helped many start personal and business art collections. Get in touch if you want to talk, and I’ll try to help!
Talks between beginners and experts can be tricky - there's always the 'how to cram years of knowledge into 30 minutes?' situation :) But Justė gracefully introduced me to the do's and don't of starting my personal art collection and was just so encouraging. Thank you, Juste, for this conversation!
