Vilnius, Vilnius, Vilnius 1918–1948. One city – many stories

Until September 3, 2023, the National Museum invites you to an exhibition showing Vilnius in an extremely complicated historical period. We get to know the city thanks to paintings, graphics, photos and other works of contemporary artists. In the years 1918–1948, Vilnius passed from hand to hand – it became part of Poland and Lithuania, was occupied by the Nazis and by the Soviet army. Occupations and wars radically changed the social structure and population of the city, and also influenced its architecture and urban planning. The seven-part narrative of the exhibition shows how the artists of the then multi-ethnic and multi-cultural Vilnius perceived their city. Apart from representatives of Polish culture, an important role in creating this image was also played by Lithuanian, Jewish and Belarusian artists. https://mnk.pl/wystawy/wilno-vilnius-vilne-1918-1948-one-miasto-wiele-opowiesci
