An exhibition project featuring Polish, Czech, and Slovak artists who have long been collaborating in various artistic endeavours. It is an international exhibition involving the Philharmonic in Szczecin, the University of Ostrava, the GDM Contemporary Art Gallery, and the Ján Koniarek Gallery in Trnava.
The main curator of the project is Tomáš Koudela, in collaboration with Tereza Čapandová, Vladek Beskid, and Andreas Guskos. The curatorial intention is to present a contemporary art scene in which traditional impressions and multimedia expressions are a natural part.
In addition to drawing, painting, and sculpture, sound installations, video productions, eco-artistic projects, and hybrid image constructions produced by artificial intelligence will be there to be seen.
The key thematic structure reflects on the emerging identity of post-industrial central points, which serve as the working and personal living spaces of artists involved in the project.
An extraordinary accent of creative implementation, their common denominator, is, in many cases, the artistic transformation of existential profiles as platforms for reinterpreting ethically heterogeneous meanings or aesthetically homogeneous concepts of the world's values.
The open spirit is realised in the world and together with the world. If the world is understood, its spirit will also be understood because we already know preliminarily what SPIRIT OPEN is.
In simpler terms, the essence of the exhibition's concept is the exploration of points of contact as focal points of a new language of coexistence, encompassing a wide range of artefact codes that operate in the contemporary visual arts scene as echoes of temporal horizons, under the influence of which our reciprocity can give meaning.
Wystawa SPIRIT OPEN dofinansowana jest ze środków Międzynarodowego Funduszu Wyszehradzkiego.
