The exhibition Myth and Art is a result of collaboration of the Meno parkas gallery from Kaunas and Croatian Association of Artists, Zagreb. The first exhibition took place in Gallery Meno parkas from 5th of July until the 31st of July 2013. It is a joint exhibition of three young Lithuanian and three young Croatian artists, trying to explore the relation between myth and art with their own unique artistic approach, investigating and explaining the importance of the terms art and myth.
Julija Pociūtė is exploring and analyzing importance of the myth through the eyes of a child. Povilas Ramanauskas is trying to explain the origin of the myth of everything through a dream while Gabrielė Tamoliūnaitė is exploring the the history of the myth through stories about the devil.
Photo performance of the young designer and artist Tajči Čekada, Look into the inter world, is represented as an illustration of the archaic, sacred myth. The works of Ivan Fijolić illustrated the term of ideological myth and Ksenija Kordić’s works illustrated the term of the anarchic myth.

Myth and Art is the exhibition dedicated to the fascinating personality of Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis (1875-1911), a Lithuanian composer and painter, and his Croatian analogue, Natko Nodilo (1834-1912), historian, politician, publicist and mythologist. And while Čiurlionis tried to achieve interpenetration of painting and music within one artistic medium, in his scientific research Natko Nodilo achieved mutual complementarity of historiography and mythological researches.

The realization of the exhibitions is made possible thanks to support of Lithuanian Culture Support Foundation, Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania, Kaunas City Municipality, The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and City Office for Education, Culture and Sport Zagreb.
