Photos: October Member Social with Photographer Andrew Miksys

October Member Social took place at the Vilnius Contemporary Art Centre where IWAV members had a rare opportunity to enjoy a photo exhibition by Andrew Miksys and to meet and talk with the artist himself. Here are a couple words about Andrew:
Andrew Miksys' photography has been shown internationally including exhibitions at the New Orleans Museum of Art, Vilnius Contemporary Art Centre, and De Appel Contemporary Arts Centre in Amsterdam. In 2002 he was selected by Photo District News (PDN) as one of the "top 30 emerging photographers to watch" and in 2006 he was featured in Slate magazine as Slate's "Artist of the Month". Miksys has also been the recipient of grants from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (2000), the J. William Fulbright Program (1998 and 2002) and the Aaron Siskind Foundation (2009). He currently divides his time between Seattle and Vilnius, Lithuania. Baxt, a book of his photographs of gypsies in Lithuania, was published in 2007.
