About the event

"Conceptual Matters" - Thematic group exhibition Location: CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium - Lavagna, Italy Accepted artworks: bidimensional, wall installed, including video art; tridimensional with limitations Period: three weeks, 2024 Submission deadline: ongoing, t.b.a. Theme: The exhibition aims to offer a panorama on the actual developments and the evolution of Conceptual Art, how it is being interpreted by contemporary artists, analysing how the concept is crucial for an artwork in a society dominated by information. Somebody may comment that all art has always been conceptual, since an artwork is born in any case from the artist's will of creating it and how; but this consideration can be easily objected if we consider Surrealist Automatism, abstraction, Pittura Analitica, asemic writing and other genres of unconscious art that involve the estrangement from conceptualism and reasoning. Therefore, the artworks of this exhibition focus on the primacy of human conscience: the idea, expressed in a direct way or conveyed by the form.
