Baltic Triennial (formerly known as Baltic Triennial of International Art) is one of the major contemporary festival exhibitions in Northern Europe. The exhibition was founded as The Baltic Triennial of Young Contemporary Art in Lithuania in 1979 while the country was under the occupation of the Soviet Union. Despite the totalitarian regime’s particular expectations invested in youth, the generation of young artists expressed a critical non-conformist spirit. After the restoration of independent Lithuania in 1990, the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC) became its organiser and host, and the Triennial’s international aspect gradually expanded.
