Summary of the Project:

The “8th International Artist’s Books Triennial Vilnius 2018” is a unique non-commercial cultural project, organised to promote artist’s books, creators of artist’s books from all over the world, and to connect galleries, publishers, editors and printers of fine art & limited editions, the greater general public, collectors and individual artists.

It is an educational art project involving world-renowned artists to familiarise art teachers, students and general public with the interdisciplinary arts with the stunning variety of artistic disciplines in an artist’s book – and especially to stimulate creativity and love for books.

With the world-wide support of fine artists we continue our Project of the Artist’s Books Triennial Vilnius on the very best artistic level:
Great Artists making a Great Exhibition!
Thank you.

The “International Artist’s Books Triennial Vilnius” is organised periodically since 1997. Over this period 1610 artists from 93 countries have submitted more than 3000 artist’s books. An international jury has chosen the best 838 submissions from 65 countries to be displayed during successive exhibitions. The Artist’s Books Triennials Vilnius is a travelling event showing in Vilnius (Lithuania), Leipzig, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Rheine (Germany), Lille (France), Silkeborg (Denmark), Venice and Vercelli (Italy), Seoul (South Korea), Halmstad (Sweden) and Salzburg (Austria).
