  13. 13. BOUNDARIES OF THE REALIn 1968, an exhibition in Vilnius of K. Zimblytė’s abstract paintings and collages was closeddown because of its Formalism. This symbolised the increasingly clear divide in Lithuanian art inthe post-Stalinist period. On one side, there were state commissions and official art exhibitions;and on the other there were shows of officially unacceptable works in obscure public and privatespaces. Most artists balanced between both modes of existence, and the development ofunofficial Lithuanian art from the 1960s to the 1980s was later called ‘Silent Modernism’.The most radical artists rejected the representation and the subjective interpretation of reality,and sought to question the very notion of reality, and explore the boundaries of its perception.Starting in the late 1950s, artists began working with abstraction, which evolved out of thevisual structures of landscapes and still lifes, since there was not a strong local tradition ofabstract art.

Galleries often showed political art by RenatoGuttuso and other Italian artists associated to Neorealism.The painter produced two versions of Demonstration. The first one wasachromatic, just black and white, therefore photographic or cinematographic incharacter. The second one, presented in this hall, by contrast, is almost an eyesorebecause of its blue, orange and yellow colour combinations. The image evokes mediareportage. …
