Migrations (in) contemporary art</em> is an exhibition that seeks to look into the vital contemporary experience based on the concept of “migrating”. Along this line, the exhibition gather works by contemporary artists of different origins whose pieces deal with a diversity of problems strictly related to the topic of migration such as exile, identity, itinerancy and belonging. It also aims to reflect upon the conditions of contemporary art in terms of migration of ideas, means, formats, practices, socio-cultural representations, etc.
Accordingly, the show Migrations (in) contemporary art will attempt to present one of the problem topics of our world and to explore the conditions of contemporary art from the viewpoint of this dynamic and complex concept with the certainty that it will open new frontiers for a new space for reflection upon our vital experiences to be generated by the space of art.
We hope that this exhibition could be a great opportunity to re-think our time, to violate the common sense, to illuminate other way of thinking, to re-locate our artistic practices and to re-create other circuits for the contemporary art.
