Really!” (Italian premiere), also in 2017 Eglė Budvytytė with her first solo exhibition in Italy “Tra ciglia e pensiero” and the traveling performance starting at MAXXI – Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo in Rome, “Choreography for the Running Male”. In 2019 Kristina Inčiūraitė with her first solo exhibition in Italy “Reflecting Women” and the performance realized at MAXXI, in collaboration with Latitudo Art Projects “The Fragment as a Proverb”. All these projects have been curated by Benedetta Carpi de Resmini. Lolita Jablonskienė – Chief curator, National Gallery of Art of Vilnius and the artist Laima Kreivytė participated in the debates realized on the occasion of the exhibitions. AlbumArte had very good relations with Lithuanian Council for Culture, Lithuanian Culture Institute, Lithuanian Embassy in Italy and its Cultural Department.
