In The Expos, we present our talents' work in two online exhibitions. The shows will be hosted by Fotomat, available from the 5th to the 31st of October.

RESET

Hosted by  and curated by Salvatore Vitale, the expo RESET investigates our main theme with projects by seven artists from our platform: Julie Poly, Ela Polkowska, Eva O'Leary, Garry Loughlin, Sanne De Wilde, Dávid Biró, and Ana Zibelnik.

2020 will likely be remembered as one of the most tumultuous years in modernity. The process it started is still ongoing and may be a catalyst for general changes that were already underway. This takes the connotation of a reset which is leading human beings to re-think the basis of their positions in the world through a process able to place creativity and free-thinking as cornerstones to foster pragmatic processes. Taking these processes as a starting point, we ask ourselves how contemporary artists and thinkers have impacted and reacted to social tensions through their often personal visions, strategies of isolation, and forms of self-organisation, regrouping, and dispersion. ⁠

The exhibition RESET features the work of seven artists who, in- and within their differentiated and multi-layered practices, offer plural methods and visions to address some key issues and stories concerning modernity. In the next days, we will present some of their works that will be presented in the online exhibition in October.⁠

FUTURES TALENTS 2020

The programme of exhibitions also presents the showcase Futures Talents 2020, which introduces our 59 emerging artists of this year. The online show has been curated by trying to answer the question ‘What are emerging artists in Europe talking about today?’. Identities, territories, spirituality, physicality and memory are some of the topics that have arisen from the talents' works.

The links to both exhibitions will be available from the 5th of October here and on our social media channels. If you want to be updated about our programme, subscribe to our newsletter (form in the end of this page).
