The selection of works hail from the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, and the capital of the art world, New York City. Works range in mediums and include paintings, video art, drawings multimedia, metals and glass.
Participating artists are either Vilnius based or New York based. Sharing a unique microcosm of Lithuanian heritage their existence in the contemporary art vernacular absolves either party from marginalization yet questions their place in it.

Sla307 is an artist run Art Space which provides local and international contemporary artists a forum to explore critical issues within art and culture in New York City. Sla307 Art Space was stablished in 2014 as the art program for the Lithuanian Alliance of America (LAA) after wanting to renew its activities as a non-profit institution. LAA is the oldest living Lithuanian organization, established in Pennsylvania in 1886. In 1910 LAA moved it’s headquarters to New York City, and remains in the Chelsea district since then.
