Kaunas Biennial

Kaunas Biennial is the largest, longest lasting, most significant and most visited contemporary art festival in Lithuania and the Baltic states.

Kaunas Biennial stands out not only for the variety of art presented, but also for its institutional independence.

Our organization is open to opportunities of self-realisation and personal development.
