I’m a Curator and Producer of Contemporary Art, and a Board Member at Rupert, a centre for Art & Education in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I worked as a Director for 6 years. 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 10-year career in the arts, I have helped many artists launch international careers and implement ambitious large-scale projects.
Alongside my professional career in the arts, I have pursued my lifelong passion for travels through my blog @OurTravelAffair, which launched in 2018. Having visited over 50 countries in 5 continents numerous times, I can help you pick the best spots for a relaxing brunch, lunchtime exhibition and romantic dinner in the city of your choice.
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!
