G-Lab aka Bumstein & Garbstein are interdisciplinary art group founded by two artists Arturas Bumsteinas and Laura Garbstiene during the exhibition Parallel Progressions 3 in the fall of 2002 in Contemporary Art Center, Vilnius.
The group seeks for interdisciplinary approach in their visual and aural media activities no matter what kind of creative work they do – live performances, different media installations, video films, clips, vj settings – or what place they are in – gallery, open air festival, nightclub, etc.
Bumstein & Garbstein
Participated in the number of important events in Lithuania Bumstein & Garbstein are also presented their works in Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom.
