Philosophy Of Contemporary Art (Rome, Italy) – Call For Artists

Philosophy Of Contemporary Art (Rome, Italy) – Call For Artists

ArtSpaceDream announces a call for artists for the Make Way project, the Philosophy of Contemporary Art exhibit to be held in Rome, Italy. Located in one of the most popular areas, Trastevere, in the cozy Spacio40 gallery. The exhibition will last nine days over two weekends.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 15 Dec 2019

Philosophy Of Contemporary Art exhibiting artists should include art philosophers, artists who gracefully embody their deep ideas on canvas. No matter how this idea is expressed – in form, colors, style, shapes, or faces. The main thing is for the artist to know exactly what his creation is about and able to convey this to the viewer through painting.

All that is born in modern art today is the search for new sensations in the viewer, the desire to surprise or even shock. Art should induce a person into discussion, the person must think, analyze, and form opinion.

About ArtSpaceDream

ArtSpaceDream is a small team of like-minded artists who follow their dreams. They have created a company that organizes exhibitions of artists whose names are not yet known to anyone. Designers, journalists, and an art curator work with them. Their goal is to help artists go beyond their own workshop and create a full-fledged exhibition portfolio that will help further advance the artist in the market. The paintings must travel. The name of the artist must sound in different countries.

Artists will have the benefit to be promoted internationally and to display their work in a prestigious location in the center of Milan. The participating works will be integrated in a common lay-out concept that involves contemporary art, design, and technology. Many car and drone fans in Milan will be invited.

About GaleriaZero

GaleriaZero (from 1997) may be considered a dynamic art gallery that specializes in the international promotion of artists and the increase of the communication between perception and art in its widest sense. This means that they do not center only in visual artists, but as well in photographers, performers, architects and even poets, light, and sound artists.

The concept is not just exhibiting artworks. GaleriaZero promotes presentations as a general concept and integration between several art forms. The aim is to provide a specific art experience in line with the theme and concept of the exhibition project. They transmit a specific meaning in the conjunctions presented in order to promote a social discussion or contribution of interest.

In the mentioned sense, GaleriaZero is not a commercial art gallery, but more a promoter of artists and a creator of socially relevant art presentations realized in collaboration with the artists, the location, and specific professionals for the characteristics and the quality of the art experiences. For this reason, artists can apply for art exhibitions and participate in the selection procedures, but in many cases artists will be approached if their way of working is in line with specific projects. Usually, participation will involve economic collaboration by artists or sponsors in order to cover the realization costs, publicity, and specially to guarantee the quality of the presentation in general.
