Theme of the exhibition - conceptual framework
Visual artists exhibit their work hoping for an honest commentary that will allow them to improve, but above all to launch a productive dialogue touching on key social issues, ethical, philosophical and other issues. Their efforts often fall short, as the public rarely responds: rudeness, formality, conservatism inhibit the expression of opinion in public. On the other hand, gossip, negative comments, but also many truths are expressed more easily on Social Media, and with the expectation of a potential impact on thousands of people.
In this report we will do an experiment: we will offer the general public the opportunity to comment through our page at Facebook each of the artists that will be included in our exhibition, his works, but also the key issues that will be raised, the exhibition itself and even its organizers, with the comments of the public being displayed on the internet, where they will remain, and after its end.
At the same time, we ask artists to contribute works that touch on all that many are whispering about, while they should speak loudly.
Who can take part in the exhibition
Visual artists, artist groups and collectives.
