City and Museum: Vilnius
An on-line lecture in the "City and Museum" series with Rasa Antanavičiūtė, director of the Vilnius Museum. The subject of the lecture was the history of the museum, its program and the situation of museums in Lithuania.

Dr. Rasa Antanavičiūtė is an art historian who is interested in the symbols and forms of presenting political power in public space and their influence on memory and identity. It was the subject of her doctoral dissertation, which she defended in 2015, and which a few years later became the basis of the monograph "Art and politics in the public space of Vilnius" (2019). This publication won the Vilnius Club Award.

Rasa Antanavičiūtė was a co-founder of the Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Art, where she was the director for nine years. She is also the main initiator of the establishment of the Vilnius Museum, opened in early 2021.
Lecture was held on November 11 at 7pm on the MCC Facebook profile in English.

With this lecture, we return to the very popular series presenting European city museums "The City and the Museum" .

The guests of next meetings talk about museum collections, exhibition strategies, management models, but also about building relationships with the environment - the public, other cultural institutions and the city space.
