The New Symbols is a project - the result of a dialogue of art curators Paris Kapralos & amp; Jason Kerofylas with the artists of ARC - Art Revisited Collective, which was culminated during the quarantine to deal with the covid-19 epidemic, and resulted in a framework and decision for a series of actions.
< br /> At the end of the 19th century the current of Symbolism spread in Europe and acted as an antidote to the futility of Realism of the time. Symbolism is inspired by the imaginary, shows ways in existential quests, and is immersed in philosophical themes. Aims to engage the viewer with a poetic and mysterious mood. It responds to the need of the artistic world of the time to oppose the vision to the deification of Logic imposed by the Enlightenment. Above and beyond formalistic depictions, Symbolism gave the historical impetus for the beginning of modern art movements. From now on, the visual arts generate allegories that are revealed with symbols and include conceptual content.

With our project we are looking for the new idiom of art that will allow it to effectively address the era, uniting forces from every art space and the human intellect. Today, as in the past, art is asked to make another leap: to promote reflection, to produce new allegories, giving the world the New Symbols of our time.
