The aim of the exhibition is to present and systematically record the current trends and proposals in the artistic field of Performance, artistically and theoretically, in order to create a meaningful and fruitful dialogue between the participants, as a continuation of the previous events for which it is estimated that they have contributed to the emergence of a large number of artists and curators.
25 years since the beginning of a small attempt that aimed to detect and present to the general public new trends and proposals and theoretical thought in the visual field. Twenty-five years of research of contemporary creative and intellectual creation, where the landscape of Contemporary Art, mainly in Greece but also internationally, has evolved and expanded, having the great luck to be present, witnesses and participants of this great and important change. We left behind the negatives of the past and contributed to the advancement and building of a new reality in the Visual Arts in our country. In this course we were fortunate to collaborate with more than 160 curators and 480 artists and gave us the great and warm support of a large audience of thousands of art lovers. We thank them all and envision the continuation of this unique event of the creators of Contemporary Art, those whose involvement with the phenomena and needs of our time and everyday life, with the abundance of expressive means and tools, open new paths in our thinking and consciousness.
