Labyrinth Gallery, 3rd floor

The Library will host the grand opening of the "Movement" exhibition and the next platform of the "Concept" 1st Triennial on November 25.

The exhibition features works by both young and well-known Belarusian artists from Minsk and other regions of Belarus, actively engaged in conceptual art, as well as avant-garde paintings of the 1980s and early 1990s from the collection of the Belarusian Union of Artists.

The main goal of the conceptual art triennial is to review and analyze the origins of the Belarusian avant-garde and a new stage in its existence. The exhibition will showcase experiments with colour, light and a play with meanings and contents that will surprise viewers in the paintings, graphics, photography and design projects of contemporary artists. The works of the classics of the Belarusian avant-garde will energetically demonstrate an individual, subjective view of artistic tasks, blurring the boundaries between portrait, landscape, still life and composition.

The "Movement" exhibition is a bright page of the "Concept" 1st Triennial, which takes place at a number of venues in the city. The "Movement" showcases the Belarusian visual arts movement and contributes to the revival, development and promotion of its best traditions and achievements.

The organizers of the exhibition are the National Library of Belarus and the Belarusian Union of Artists.

The opening will begin at 5 p.m. at the Labyrinth Gallery (3rd floor).

Admission is free on the opening day. On other days, admission is by the library card or by the Social and Cultural Centre ticket.

The exhibition will be on display in the Atrium and Labyrinth galleries until February 10, 2022.
The end date is subject to change.
