VILNIUS HERMITAGE MUSEUM - VILNIUS, LITHUANIA

In 2009 GCAM completed a Feasibility Study for an agency of the Municipal Government of Vilnius for a museum of Modern and contemporary art, with the State Hermitage Museum of St. Petersburg as a possible partner.  This was initially a project of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, begun when Thomas Krens was its Director, and was completed by GCAM as a consultant to the Guggenheim.

This 12,890 square meter museum was designed by Zaha Hadid, the winner of the competition, designed and implemented by GCAM, that included Daniel Libeskind and Massimiliano Fuksas. 

The exhibition program centers on a core collection that the government had acquired on the recommendation of Thomas Krens  – approximately 2,500 works of Fluxus art, a seminal avant-garde international network of artists, composers, and designers noted for blending different artistic media and disciplines in the 1960s.  The collection had been assembled by Fluxus founder George Maciunas.  In addition the museum would feature works and programming from the State Hermitage Museum, a Film and New Media Center, and a Litvak Center - the first of its kind which would highlight the work of prominent Litvak /Jewish artists of Lithuanian descent such as Marc Chagall, Jacques Lipchitz, and Chaim Soutine.


维尔纽斯赫米特基博物馆——立陶宛 维尔纽斯

2009年,GCAM与圣彼得堡国家赫米特基博物馆合作,为维尔纽斯市政府的一个机构完成了一项关于当代和现代艺术博物馆的可行性研究。这最初是所罗门·R·古根海姆基金会的一个项目,托马斯·克伦斯任基金会主管的时候就开始了,而最终由作为古根海姆顾问的GCAM完成。

这座占地12,890平方米的博物馆由建筑竞赛赢家萨哈·哈迪德设计,由包括丹尼尔·里伯斯金和马希米亚诺·福克萨斯在内的GCAM团队设计实施。

展览安排以政府根据托马斯·克伦斯的建议所获得的核心收藏品为中心。这些收藏品大概有2500件作品,风格类型广泛,有激浪派艺术作品,也有先锋派国际画家、作家、设计师的作品。这些艺术家因在20世纪60年代混合不同艺术手段和方法而闻名,对后来的先锋派有重大影响。藏品已经由激浪派创始人乔治·马丘纳斯整理完成。另外,博物馆还从国家赫米特基博物馆、电影和新媒体中心以及利特瓦克中心引进作品和节目展出。利特瓦克中心是同行中第一个聚焦著名立陶宛/犹太人艺术家作品的博物馆,著名的立陶宛裔犹太艺术家有马克·夏卡尔、雅克·里普希茨和柴姆·苏丁。
