project description

The exhibit Through the Painting brings together an international group of artists with different artistic interests and languages. Such a temporary alliance is made possible by the exhibits theme: one of the key professional issues of contemporary art is the question of the status of the painting in present-day artistic work. Have the fine arts of the modern world maintained their characteristic- to represent the ornamental and plastic unity of the world, even of a world that was torn asunder by internal contradictions and that has already passed through the painting in its artistic evolution , through conceptualist textual art and the art of the object and the installation? Showing, in their own different ways, how paintings functions are redistributed in new artistic techniques and styles, the project Through the Painting presents a survey of the problem of the contemporary artistic image and analyzes the international artistic trends affecting the present-day state of culture as well as the entire artistic heritage. For fundamental changes are taking place not only in cutting-edge art but also in the viewers optics and in his ways of visually perceiving and understanding reality.
