Brief description of residency program

In 2017 BiteVilnius AiR was supported by Nordic Council of Ministers.

BITEVILNIUS Artist Residency provides an uninterrupted process of work and natural environment, simple studio facilities and 1,5 ha of open air facilities for exploring and developing the work.

Our central location allows collaboration with venues in the major cities in Lithuania : Vilnius, Kaunas, Panevzys (in the distance of 60-90 km), Ukmerge, Utena, Anyksciai (in the distance of 20-30 km) where artists can meet and share their experience with the colleagues and art critics.

BITEVILNIUS Artist Residency is a project which developed from 4 years of experience organizing BITEVILNIUS art festivals in different venues in Vilnius. It is artist-run initiative organized and curated by visual artist and curator Marija Griniuk and musician, visual artist and performance designer Tue Brisson Mosich.

BITEVILNIUS Artist Residency is situated in a late 19th/early 20th century former farm complex, where we have 2 preserved original buildings and a complex of later constructed buildings. All buildings are currently under ongoing renovation, which we, as owners of the place, are very ambitious about and dedicated to.

Own room / or house, shared bathroom, huge ecological fruit garden.
