The curator and organisers would like to invite you to participate in the 6th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2012.

Exhibition theme: Love

'If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.' 1Cor 13,1-3.
