ARTVILNIUS’15
 
During the four days of ArtVilnius’15, Exhibition and Congress Centre LITEXPO was proud to meet 18.5 thousand visitors of the art fair; about 100 artworks were sold for 200 thousand euro. These figures once again evidence the stable anchoring of the contemporary art fair, which was held for the sixth time this year, both in the local and global art markets and on the list of the events to visit by art lovers. ArtVilnius’15 presented 55 galleries from 15 countries of the world, including Ukraine which was this year’s guest country.
