Liniya Vtechi Arts Day, Old Lviv Tram Depot (located at the intersection of Vitovskoho and Sakharova streets), May 16 Young conceptual artists are becoming one of the largest subgroups among Lviv youth, with the genre literally exploding as the city finds its feet among its European contemporaries and regains its creative courage after decades  of communist-enforced monotony and years in the post-Soviet doldrums. Yet more evidence of this burgeoning contemporary arts scene will be on display this May 16 as student collectives participate in a fun installation and video expo day in the inspirationally spooky surroundings of Lviv old tram depot. This monument to the city’s past  will provide the perfect contrast to the ultra-hip exhibits and offer the kind of moody backdrop in which old a city of   Lviv deeply contrasting and colourful past can boast. Highlights include the ‘pinhole’ urban landscapes exhibits by Lviv students, which will run from 15.00 until 18.00 with free entrance for all. From 18.00 guests will be asked to  pay a UAH 20 entrance fee but will be treated to a cacophony of video art and music from a range of regional talent   including Godo and DJ T-one.
