apieceM. K. Čiurlionio g., Vilnius, Lithuania
apiece is a window gallery in the center of Vilnius (M.K. Čiurlionio st.) exhibiting a single work of contemporary visual art or a design object at a time. The gallery does not adhere to the common exposition space standards – it does not open exhibitions, has no working hours or days (24/7), and presents the works / objects in space that is visible to the viewer through the showcase window.
The format of apiece exhibitions has been dictated by the size of the space (320cm x 175cm) along with our wish to encourage the audience to take closer interest in the author of the work/object or in contemporary art on the whole.
apiece is a phenomenon for which the cramped physical space is not the limit – rather the end result of the long matured concept that has gained a physical body; at the same time, it is a provocation for artists – to express (the whole of) oneself in a single work format.
