KAUNAS PHOTO festivalis kviečia į turą po parodas dviračiais

Sorry, this entry is only available in Lithuanian.

Rugsėjo 13 d., trečiadienį, 18 val., XIV-asis KAUNAS PHOTO festivalis, kuris savo programoje tyrinėja vandens temą, kauniečius ir miesto svečius kviečia į turą po festivalio lauko parodas dviračiais. Susitikimo ir turo pradžios vieta – skveras prie Kauno apskrities valstybinės mokesčių inspekcijos (Juozapavičiaus pr. 57), kuriame eksponuojama autorių Paolo Woods ir Gabriele Galimberti paroda „Rojai. Metinė ataskaita“. Turą po lauko parodas dviračiai ves Lietuvos dviratininkų bendrijos narys-gidas Linas Vainius ir parodų kuratorius Mindaugas Kavaliauskas. Renginys nemokamas ir atviras visiems.

Todd Johnson (Australija) “Fosilijos”, Žaliakalnio funikulieriaus papėdė

Turo po lauko parodas dviračiais koncepciją įkvėpė XIV-ojo KAUNAS PHOTO tema – „Vanduo“. Festivalio parodose vandens motyvas atskleidžiamas ne tik per humoro prizmę, bet taip pat akcentuojamos vis opesnėmis tampančios ekologijos, klimato kaitos problemos. Todėl festivalio organizatoriai kviečia nors kelioms valandoms automobilius iškeisti į dviračius ir tokiu būdu nors maža dalimi prisidėti prie gamtos puoselėjimo.

Linas Vainius ir Mindaugas Kavaliauskas miestiečius išsamiai supažindins su trejomis KAUNAS PHOTO festivalio lauko parodomis: Paolo Woods (Hiatis) ir Gabriele Galimberti (Italija) „Rojai. Metinė ataskaita“, skveras Juozapavičiaus pr. 57; australo Todd Johnson „Fosilijos“, Žaliakalnio funikulieriaus papėdė, V. Putvinskio g. ir Katerina Mistal (Švedija) „Europos žymėjimas“, aikštė prie Kauno pilies.

XIV-asis KAUNAS PHOTO festivalis taip pat kviečia aplankyti Bertos Tilmantaitės parodą „Iš vandens“ eksponuojamą Čečėnijos aikštėje. Nuo rugsėjo vidurio Kauno miesto centre, ant buvusio „Merkurijaus“ tvoros nuguls festivalio meninių rezidencijų autorių: Andreas Müller-Pohle (Vokietija), Dorota Dawidowicz (Lenkija), Jari Silomäki (Suomija) Kaune sukurti fotografijų darbai.

KAUNAS PHOTO festivalio lauko parodos veiks iki spalio pabaigos, o paroda ant „Merkurijaus“ tvoros – iki kitų metų kovo mėn.
