Artissima 2021 will explore the concept of FRENETIC STANDSTIL, examining its repercussions on the world of contemporary art. The theme of acceleration as opposed to inertia, and therefore of a necessary change of our paradigms, ignites the most recent debates. The true response to the crisis of our complex times is a profound and thorough form of evolution which might be conveyed precisely by art,
which has always borne witness to histories and civilizations in the past, while acting as a catalyst of the most innovative visions.
The Selection Committee (Main Section, Dialogue/Monologue, New Entries, Art Spaces & Editions) and the Curatorial Committees (Back to the Future, Present Future, Disegni) are available here
