Painting by a Lithuanian artist Birutė Bagdonavičiūtė
“Made by X” collection:
For the 3rd anniversary of ideas Block we launched an open call for international artists to take part in our fundraiser exhibition to raise money for the future development.
We gathered a collection of nearly 200 pieces from 15 countries, 38 artists from around the world.
The idea was to keep it anonymous, without letting the audience know the authors of each artwork – to create a guessing game for the audience and even things between the artists from all sorts of contexts. All the artworks were made on an A5 size format and priced equally – 20 eur per piece. In this way we were providing an access to affordable art and and opportunity to purchase art solely based on the work itself and not the name of whom may have made it.
Some of the pieces have been sold during the exhibition, and the rest go online for a flat price of 20 euros.
