ARTISSIMA 2020: THE THEME

Artissima 2020 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.

COMMITTEES

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
