CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium - EXHIBITION SEASON 2022

Accepted works: videos (moving pictures, performance, etc) and still pictures (photography and all visual arts.)
Venue: CTAO Gallery - Lavagna, Italian Riviera, Northern Italy
Duration: three weeks each

CAREFULLY READ RULES & TERMS: submission is free but a small contribution will be required only to participants.

CTAO's exhibition season 2022 will feature THREE different thematic group exhibitions of contemporary art:

1) We Are Joseph Beuys
2) TransHumance
3) Escapism

1) >>> We Are Joseph Beuys <<<
Tags: NATURE, SHAMANISM, CONCEPTUAL, ENVIRONMENT, WILDLIFE, TREES, GREEN, WOOD, ECOLOGY, MOTHER, EARTH, ACTIVISM, HAT, SOCIAL, PUBLIC, PEOPLE, DEMOCRATISATION, ANARCHY, FLUXUS, SYMBOLISM, MYTHOLOGY, MAGIC, SPIRIT, ORACLE, SEER, SAVAGE, PRIMAL, INSTINCT, MATTER, FAT, FELT, etc.
Theme: A further exhibition, following the birth centenary of the great master, to never quench but project indefinitely into the future the message of the shaman-artist who inspired many generations and promoted the environmentalist awareness in our society, in particular during his intense relation with the Italian cultural scene. This show wants to keep the debate running on the truest and deepest feeling of love for the nature that pushed him, through artworks by contemporary artists who confront with his way to express and make art, his activities, his personality or even his figure.

2) >>> TransHumance <<<
Tags: TRANSHUMAN, IMMORTALITY, SINGULARITY, MICROCHIP, ELECTRONIC, CYBER, CYBERPUNK, ANDROID, GYNOID, ROBOT, FEMBOT, SEX DOLL, TECHNOLOGY, MACHINE, COMPUTING, VIRTUAL, AUGMENTED, REALITY, ILLUSION, DYSMORPHOPHOBIA, DRUG, PLASTIC SURGERY, WEARABLE, PROSTHESES, UPGRADE, UBERMENSCH, SUPERHERO, BODY BUILDING, MODDING, POD, SMARTPHONE, etc.

Theme: Wearable high-tech, augmented reality, cybernetic prostheses, microchip implants, are the first steps of the transhumanism that herds human beings like cattle toward an alleged human-machine singularity. Does the human being desires to be free from the natural body’s caducity? What is the meaning of preserving the individual’s intellect in cyberspace? Which perspectives would immortality offer? Wouldn’t be more desirable to train our natural body and our innate potentialities relying on the resources and rebirth capability offered by nature?

3) >>> Escapism <<<
Tags: ESCAPE, REALITY, DREAM, PSYCHE, NIGHTMARE, OPPRESSION, SOCIETY, UTOPIA, DYSTOPIA, OVERTON'S WINDOW, PLATONIC CAVE, ENLIGHTENMENT, EDUCATION, IMAGINATION, REBELLION, ALTERNATIVE, WAY OF LIFE, EXTRAVAGANCE, SELF-DETERMINATION, PHILOSOPHY, RELIGION, NONCONFORMISM, ECCENTRICITY, DANDYISM, etc.

Theme: An exhibition relating to the reasons and to the psychic and emotional condition of the individual who, in good or bad, tries to escape a society that is bog-standard, oppressing, too complicated and demanding. Ambition, fantasy, dream, spirituality, faith and idealism counterposed to the burden of homogenisation, pragmatism and materialism.

For the exhibition season 2022, CTAO introduces three thematic collective exhibitions of contemporary arts open to all kinds of bi-dimensional art and expressions, either traditional or digital: painting, photography, print, graphics, film and video, performance, audio, etc. Please submit to the relative thematic section. If you are unsure, you can submit to the "generic" section and let us consider if your work can fit one of the themes.

The exhibition will feature both physical and screened artworks.

THIS CONTEST IS SELECTING ARTISTS TO BE FEATURED UPON A CONTRIBUTION TO EXHIBITION EXPENSES, please ask for costs and requirements by sending us an e-mail of your proposal including some details about your expression (links to web-sites or attach statement, bio, portfolio, etc.)
