EUTOPIA - Artistic visions of Europe
Quick overview? Click on the image
The artists in this exhibition and their works support the European Year 2010 For Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion. Art can be a lens to focus attention, express emotion, and construct ideas. The chosen works of this show can join the conversation on these critical issues. Artists can shed light on these complex problems and controversy using our tools, style, media, beauty, metaphor and truth.
Artists are invited to offer utopian visions not tied to ideology or accepted knowledge, thus disrupting the chain that limits our ability to envision and create a brighter future.
Art depicts dreams, visions, utopias that do not need to be justified. Creative thinking can make the familiar strange, the strange familiar, offer unique perspectives and landscapes. EUtopia can exist. CULTUREINSIDE wants to raise with your input greater awareness of the existing poverty in Europe. Our artistic visions of Europe can show solutions and encourage.
