Splitting the Atom

Group show with works by Deimantas Narkevičius
CAC/SMC Centre for Contemporary Art
Energy & Technology Museum, Vilnius
Until December 2020

There are two nuclear power plants in the vicinity of Vilnius: the decommissioned plant at Ignalina in Lithuania, and Astravets in Belarus which is not yet operational. A third infamous plant is Chernobyl, eerily present following the effects of its catastrophic failure, and more recently via the popular television series that focuses on the disastrous consequences of lies and neglect. The exhibition Splitting the Atom offers insight into the different cultural contexts of these plants and their role in the global infrastructure of the nuclear cycle, from natural resource extraction to waste.

The exhibition Splitting the Atom takes place across two venues in Vilnius, the CAC/SMK and the ETM Energy and Technology Museum.
Curators: Ele Carpenter and Virginija Januškevičiūtė.
