The Meeting That Never Was, MO Museum

Vilnius, Lithuania

An exceptional opportunity to experience the works of world-renowned artists, such as Guerrilla Girls, Andy Warhol, Yves Klein and the others. Here, in Lithuania, at MO Museum!

About the exhibition

For many decades of the Cold War, an iron curtain separated the artists of the US, Western Europe and Lithuania. Have you ever wondered what would happen if worlds separated by decades of coercion were one day to meet?

This exhibition is a unique opportunity to see the work of so many different and intriguing artists – Andy Warhol, Guerrilla Girls, Yves Klein, Marlene Dumas, Maria Teresa Rožanskaitė, Deimantas Narkevičius and others – in Lithuania, at MO Museum.

The Meeting that Never Was” stages an imaginary encounter by interlacing artworks from two European collections, MO Museum and Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. There are also some important loans from other Lithuanian collections. The artists and artworks brought together here were forcibly kept apart during the Cold War. A conversation between them has become possible only now, in Lithuania. This gives us a chance to look back at an important period of art and history that continues to shape the world today.
